Here are some ways you can buy The D Word and still protect your privacy, and (importantly) your safety:
From the host of the critically acclaimed The Divorce Survival Guide Podcast comes a book that provides the clarity, peace, and answers women need to make empowered decisions about their marriages, break unhealthy patterns, and build the life they truly want.
Every year, close to a million women struggle to decide whether to divorce their partners. Some are in relationships they know to be unsalvageable, yet they’re terrified that divorce will hurt their kids. Others feel guilt-ridden and confused over their unhappiness with a spouse who seems, to the outside world at least, to be perfectly fine. And then there are those in between, restless and aware of problems that may or may not be fixable, with no idea how to tell the difference.
The D Word is the definitive yet accessible guide for everyone who wants to take control of their lives, either by ending or repairing their marriage. Written in Kate Anthony’s signature straight talking, empowered style, The D Word is more than a practical handbook for those considering divorce. It also reveals how cultural and societal influences negatively affect our relationships and expectations, stacking the odds against women. And it provides a template for confident decision-making and lasting growth and change—whether readers choose to stay in a marriage or leave it.
“Kate Anthony’s approach to the discussion of divorce is both compassionately informative and beautifully permission-giving.
If you are considering what life might look like outside of your marriage, The D Word will help you make decisions with clarity and integrity. I will be relying on this book as a resource in my work for years to come.”

Her powerful words combined with her killer insight, strategy, and wit, make this the ultimate guide to determining whether or not to leave your marriage – and more importantly – how to do it safely.”

This book is a guide for that trail, where Kate is out in front holding the torch.”
“The decision to stay in or leave a marriage is often accompanied by shame, fear, and self-doubt.
