歐普拉讀書俱樂部最新推薦書!

Elizabeth Gilbert視本書為《享受吧!一個人的旅行》的姊妹作。

「脆弱可以很有力量的證明!Glennon清楚地告訴我們何謂”對自己誠實”(To thine own self be true)。她好像進到了自己的內心,攫住了最原始的情感,並轉譯為每個人都知曉的痛苦與羞恥。換句話說,這本書與每個人都有關。她勇敢地將每件事都攤在陽光下!」
--歐普拉

Glennon Doyle Melton是虛擬社群”Momastery”的創辦人,她期許這個網站就像修道院(Monastery)一樣,幫助人們提升精神生活,提供另一種更溫柔、真實且勇敢的方式生活在這世上,這個網站每周有數百萬人點閱。而Glennon的文字與演說,使她成為鼓舞家庭和女性的社會運動者。她認為生命既殘酷(brutal)又美麗(beautiful),因此自創了殘酷美(brutiful)這個詞。除此之外,她還創立了非營利組織Together Rising,至今已募集400萬美元,用來幫助世界各地需要的家庭,這個組織的志工們被Glennon暱稱為”愛的戰士”(Love Warriors)。這麼看來,Glennon是個充滿正面能量的女性,不是嗎?一般人絕對不會想到,她竟有20年的時間,迷失在暴食、酗酒、亂愛與吸毒的生活裡。幸好2002年驗孕棒上顯示懷孕的可能性使她懸崖勒馬,決定當一個正經的好母親,遠離那些殘害她的事物。

婚後的Glennon,有三個快樂的孩子,寵溺她的丈夫,她的寫作生涯是如此成功,第一本書Carry On, Warrior便一躍成為《紐約時報》的暢銷書。眾人欣羨的同時,丈夫竟向她坦白,他其實是個對婚姻不忠的男人,這個誠實的告解,讓Glennon第二次墜入人生的谷底,也催生了這本新書: Love Warrior。

這是一本關於不忠、背叛與救贖的書。它要傳達的是,男女結合的完美典範也可以造就完全不了解彼此的夫妻;危機可以是通往認清更真實的自我與更好生活的跳板。作者也談到了她如何透過痛苦教養孩子;可以傷害又能療癒的友情;能束縛又能解放女性的信仰;最後如何找到內在心靈的平和。這本關於性、上帝、食物、毒品、色情與溫柔的書,赤裸呈現髒污與聖潔通常是不可分的。

The highly anticipated new memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle Melton 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, fall in love.

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.
