An Oprah Bookclub 2016 Selection
The highly anticipated memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton, Love Warrior tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.
Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out—three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list—her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.
Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another—and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they've been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.
Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.

"Author-narrator Glennon Doyle Melton's heartfelt performance underscores the brutal honesty of the story of her ongoing journey to accepting love--of self, of family, and of God. At first, Melton's youthful-sounding voice seems to belie her rocky start, which included an eating disorder in high school and a later alcohol problem, but soon the power of her truths takes center stage. In a clear and expressive delivery, Melton bravely shares her struggles with learning how to live authentically while embracing her missteps and deep uncertainties. Though Melton's challenges may seem to be uniquely hers, the desire to be free of addictions, to be a strong and present parent and partner, to find spiritual peace, and to be comfortable in one's own skin is universal.
