This new book by Ashton Applewhite is a feast. There is relatively little of Ashton Applewhite here and a great deal of the heroic, sometimes inspiring, sometimes mundane stories of women who have survived. Applewhite is unabashed in her support of divorce as the correct choice for women locked in bad marriages.
I’m recommending Cutting Loose now for all my female clients who have been living with an abusive man. In addition, though, I’m buying it and giving it to all my male friends who are newlyweds or about to get married. I say that because reading it has given me a new perspective about, and a new approach to, my own marriage. This is good stuff.
