The Divorce Diet

eBook

"Food and love and loss and resilience . . . are Hawley's recipe for a slyly entertaining and heartening novel" (Daniel Menaker, author of The Treatment).

Abigail is sure the only thing standing between her and happiness is the weight she gained along with her beloved new baby. Until she instantly loses 170 pounds of husband.

When Thad declares that "this whole marriage thing" is no longer working (after commenting about how she's turning into a bit of a pudge), a shell-shocked Abigail takes her infant daughter, Rosie, and moves back to her parents' house.

Thrown for a loop as a suddenly single new mom, she hunts for guidance in her latest weight-loss book, treating its author as her imaginary personal guru. But as Abigail follows the book's advice, she begins to rediscover her love of cooking. Her diets have pushed her toward fat-free, joy-free foods, and her mother's kitchen is filled with instant, frozen, and artificially flavored fare. It's time for Abigail to indulge her own tastes—and write her own recipe for a good life . . .

Bitingly funny and wise, with bonus recipes included, this novel is an ode to food and self-discovery for any woman who's ever walked away from a relationship—or a diet—to find what true satisfaction is all about.

"Revenge is sweet. Reinventing yourself . . . is even sweeter." —Cathy Lamb, author of If You Could See What I See
