Product Details


"By offering up pithy and poignant descriptions of their own early divorces, Sarah Touborg and Kay Moffett have infused their new guide with enough humor and detail to give it the life-like quality of literature. …Offering brass-tacks advice on legal and financial matters with enough life experience and empathy to qualify them as ‘experts,’ the authors console and teach with real insight and sensitivity for those going through one of life’s biggest hardships, and every divorcee would benefit from reading this engrossing, chatty guide."
— BUST, December 2003

"Moffett and Touborg understand what it’s like to deal with sudden "singledom" and the feelings that accompany it. In their down-to-earth guide, they help young divorcees tackle both legal and emotional problems in a tone that is by turns chatty and straightforward. Overwhelming issues are discussed with authority and sensitivity. Highly recommended."
–Library Journal, October 1, 2003

"They [the authors] offer compassionate and no-nonsense advice on everything from sharing the news about the breakup, and what to do with the wedding album, to re-entering the dating world and getting re-married."
–Bergen Record, August 5, 2003

"Not Your Mother’s Divorce offers the best kind of book therapy: comforting, informative, and practical advice for a new generation of divorcees."
–Pamela Paul, author of The Starter Marriage and the Future of Matrimony

"Not Your Mother’s Divorce is a witty, knowledgeable and compassionate book. A standout performance."
–Mel Krantzler, Ph.D., author of The New Creative Divorce

"Twenty-something never-marrieds have their guides and gurus, as do their older newly-single counterparts. But how does Holly go lightly back into the world when her starter marriage ends? Moffett and Toubourg’s witty, informed, true-to-real-life handbook will tell her everything she needs to know, all tied up with a big shiny bow of we’ve-been-there compassion."
–Lynn Harris, co-creator of and author of Breakup Girl to the Rescue! A Superhero’s Guide to Love, and Lack Thereof
