I don't often review non-fiction, but this book with its great advice and its catchy title is a delight to share with you all. Throughout the book, the authors share wisdom for "pureed" families. Diana writes hers from personal experience, and Marty adds the experience of a licensed, nationally certified professional counselor.
Other titles such as "Are the Wedding Bell Blues Becoming Your Song?" and "Good Night, Sleep Tight, and Don't Let the Frustrations Bite" tell of heart wrenching and heart-warming true stories with humor and humility. Even if you aren't part of a blended family yourself, I am sure you know someone who could benefit from real-life answers to some solutions for those marrying the second time around. So, please order this book for yourself or them or both! I think it would also make a great study book for a group of blended families trying to blend harmoniously.
Diana Lesire Brandmeyer is an author with a background in education and psychology who tells of her experiences as a widowed mom of two sons who married a widowed dad with a son of his own. She wrote this book to "help others better navigate the issues that arise in a new family."
