A Family No Matter What: The Journey to a Beautiful Divorce, Happy Children, and a Vibrant Life by Sandrine Perradin is the author's heartrending story in which she shares some of the painful yet profound periods of her life, her discovery of her strengths, shortcomings, gratitude, and how she learned to communicate clearly and respectfully during the conflict. The author refrains from sharing the dirt in her marriage but shares the despair, confusion, and relief of ending her marriage, and how she found the courage to embrace and stand up for her core values, herself, her children, and her family.
Divorce is always painful and the book has some valuable advice and tools that will help to make life after divorce easier and functional, create a peaceful co-parenting structure, and raise happy, confident, and healthy children. It is a good book for readers who are going through a difficult divorce or planning to get divorced because it will help to create healthier family relationships and dynamics in life.
The question and answer session at the end of the book is helpful to many when it comes to having a 'beautiful' divorce and teaching children to respect their parents. The book is honest and mindful not only when it comes to divorce, but also about living life. The author shares many personal moments and areas of her life that will help readers understand the difficult times she went through, and how she still managed to create her own definition of a healthy relationship.
