Diane Rose Duffyabout this book: Thirteen years…That's how long Kara Salinger stays married to Danny Morino, which is a very long time, considering his abusive behavior toward her. But eventually, Kara musters up the courage and strength to leave Danny. And with that first step, she begins a great journey in search of her own "happily ever after."
Kara is thirty-two when she starts anew. She's been with just one man, and has only one friend. Yet she forges ahead, trying out Internet dating—to comical effect—while learning about relationships, sex, and friendships along the way to discovering that there are many types of families in this world.
Join Kara on her journey, and be prepared for many twists, turns, and surprises. Take a Piece of My Heart will make you laugh, cry, and experience just about every other human emotion. It might even make you blush a little, as Kara's candor is sometimes brazen. You never know what words may spew out of her mouth as she experiences life's ups and downs—but rest assured, they're always honest, heartfelt, and hopeful.
Some readers may hesitate to read this book because the reviews and synopsis indicate it is about spousal abuse so they assume the book is a depressing read. That is absolutely not the case with Take a Piece of My Heart. This book is focused more on the journey Kara takes after she walks away from her abusive relationship. She married at a young age so she has only been with one man and is naive to the dating scene. The book is actually quite humorous for the most part, but does have some moments when tissues will be required.
