I am a Generation EX adult of childhood divorce. I started reading this book and immediately began checking off the items on the list of my past that made life so hard, understanding what happened and how it impacted me as if scales had been removed from my eyes. Jen Abbas gets it, and offers practical tips for dealing with the affects, effects, and pain. Above all we rest in knowing that we have a heavenly Father who loves us unconditionally and will never abandon us or reject us.

This book is not about how to heal broken marriages. It doesn't address complicating factors of divorce such as abuse, mental illness, pornography, and other addictions. It does, however, address the raw pain and impact of divorce on the kids who have to live with it.

I looked into this book when the title caught me eye. My parents recently divorced after thirty some years of marriage, and me in my thirties. As the author states in her book, not much is written for adult children of divorcing parents. The book is actually more geared toward kids whose parents divorced when they were young and they have now grown into adults. However, much of what the author writes is still relevant to those like me, whose parents divorced when they were adults.

I cannot begin to express the pain that divorce brings on a child - a child of ANY age. Though parents also face pain in divorce, that which a child edures is vastly different and for life. Often, parents "move on" and expect children to also - completely missing what that entails for the child. Each divorce situation is unique and the pain felt by children is unique, yet we all long for someone to identify with us and understand. This book does so. I believe this book also helps those who are not children of divorce to better understand and be able to empathize with those who are. The book has greatly helped my husband understand my sorrow,emotion, and struggles.

This book was a wonderful source of comfort to me, in that it did help me identify why I was feeling certain pain, as well as identify with my pain, letting me know that what I'm experiencing is normal. The book helped me feel acceptable in placing boundaries in my current situation and in beginning to walk the path of healing. I've underlined and highlighted so many passages my book is a sea of yellow. I absorbed the needed relief and encouragement in less than a few days.

If you are a child of divorce - get the book "0)

Horrible! The book was obviously written by a women who had a major axe to grind and she needs some professional therapy. I felt sorry for her as I listened to the book. She lumped all divorced people into the same category, and made insulting generalities about parents who divorce. I divorced, but I did so to protect my children from their father's abuse (that I did not know was going on). I very much resented being talked about in her book, like I was selfish for divorcing.

I threw the book away. I would have loved to have passed it on to others who had adult children of divorce who were struggling, but I honestly thought that the book would do damage, so I threw it away!

I would not recommend for anyone to read it. If your adult kids are messed up from your divorce, this book will only mess them up farther.

A poem, written when the author was 18, starts the book by describing her parents' divorce as resembling an earthquake, rumbling with rage, anger and guilt that have been festering for a long time.

This powerful poem tells you Generation Ex will be a painful ride toward much-needed healing for adult children of divorce.

The author said: When it came to love and my own adult relationships, what I wanted so desperately (love) was what I feared the most. I didn't want to repeat what my parents did.

Abbas wrote the book not to revisit "the divorce," but to give other adult children of divorce permission to admit it hurt and to give us hope so we can choose to begin to heal that hurt.

Written from the Christian perspective, the author tells the lesson God has whispered to her was that she was no longer the victim of her parents' past. She is God's precious child with a future full of promise in her relationships. And so are you! We don't always know why our God allows us to experience pain, but we can be confident that He has a plan.

This message is about deep pain that led to her healing--and by following in her guided footsteps, your healing can begin too. Some of her chapters are: Make Peace; Redefine Our Family Relationships; Find Home for Ourselves; Seek Wholeness; Learn to Trust; Anticipate Our Triggers; Create Our Own Marriage Model; and Choose to Love. The book has four appendixes of "things to do."

Armchair Interviews says: If you have felt any hurt from a parents' divorce, this book is for you. It is a gift waiting for you to open and explore, learn from and work toward healing. Her advice, resources and message are invaluable.

This book is about adult children of divorce, and the issues that they face when they grow up. I found this book helpful because I'm an adult child of divorce. I could relate to a lot of what the book said. There was some helpful information about having that sense of belonging, finding a home, finding peace, letting go of resentment, relating to your parents today, and how you can create that intact family by working with your own spouse. This book was not a parent bashing book, but a book about forgiveness, realizing that your parents are human, and that although you can't change what happened in the past, you can find ways to make your life work so that you can move on from the past.
