#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “Packed with incredible insight about what it means to be a woman today.”—Reese Witherspoon (Reese’s Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick)

In her most revealing and powerful memoir yet, the activist, speaker, bestselling author, and “patron saint of female empowerment” (People) explores the joy and peace we discover when we stop striving to meet others’ expectations and start trusting the voice deep within us.

“Untamed will liberate women—emotionally, spiritually, and physically. It is phenomenal.”—Elizabeth Gilbert, author of City of Girls and Eat Pray Love

This is how you find yourself.

There is a voice of longing inside each woman. We strive so mightily to be good: good partners, daughters, mothers, employees, and friends. We hope all this striving will make us feel alive. Instead, it leaves us feeling weary, stuck, overwhelmed, and underwhelmed. We look at our lives and wonder: Wasn’t it all supposed to be more beautiful than this? We quickly silence that question, telling ourselves to be grateful, hiding our discontent—even from ourselves.

For many years, Glennon Doyle denied her own discontent. Then, while speaking at a conference, she looked at a woman across the room and fell instantly in love. Three words flooded her mind: There She Is. At first, Glennon assumed these words came to her from on high. But she soon realized they had come to her from within. This was her own voice—the one she had buried beneath decades of numbing addictions, cultural conditioning, and institutional allegiances. This was the voice of the girl she had been before the world told her who to be. Glennon decided to quit abandoning herself and to instead abandon the world’s expectations of her. She quit being good so she could be free. She quit pleasing and started living.

Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.

Untamed shows us how to be brave. As Glennon insists: The braver we are, the luckier we get.

The highly anticipated memoir by bestselling author Glennon Doyle, Love Warrior tells the story of her journey of self-discovery after the implosion of her marriage.

Just when Glennon Doyle Melton was beginning to feel she had it all figured out—three happy children, a doting spouse, and a writing career so successful that her first book catapulted to the top of the New York Times bestseller list—her husband revealed his infidelity and she was forced to realize that nothing was as it seemed. A recovering alcoholic and bulimic, Glennon found that rock bottom was a familiar place. In the midst of crisis, she knew to hold on to what she discovered in recovery: that her deepest pain has always held within it an invitation to a richer life.

Love Warrior is the story of one marriage, but it is also the story of the healing that is possible for any of us when we refuse to settle for good enough and begin to face pain and love head-on. This astonishing memoir reveals how our ideals of masculinity and femininity can make it impossible for a man and a woman to truly know one another—and it captures the beauty that unfolds when one couple commits to unlearning everything they’ve been taught so that they can finally, after thirteen years of marriage, commit to living true—true to themselves and to each other.

Love Warrior is a gorgeous and inspiring account of how we are born to be warriors: strong, powerful, and brave; able to confront the pain and claim the love that exists for us all. This chronicle of a beautiful, brutal journey speaks to anyone who yearns for deeper, truer relationships and a more abundant, authentic life.
Justo cuando Glennon Doyle comenzaba a sentir que lo tenía todo, tres niños felices, un esposo cariñoso y una carrera como escritora tan exitosa que su primer libro alcanzó la cima de la lista best seller del New York Times, su esposo le reveló su infidelidad y se vio forzada a darse cuenta de que nada es lo que parece ser. Una alcohólica y bulímica en recuperación, Glennon reconoció que el fracaso es un lugar familiar. En medio de la crisis, supo aferrarse a lo que descubrió en recuperación: que su más profundo dolor siempre ha guardado dentro una invitación hacia una vida más abundante. Guerrera del amor es la historia de un matrimonio, pero es también la historia de la sanidad que es posible cuando nos negamos a conformarnos con algo bueno y nos enfrentamos al dolor y al amor. Esta memoria sorprendente revela cómo nuestros ideales de masculinidad y feminidad, pueden hacer que sea imposible para un hombre y una mujer conocerse realmente el uno al otro, y capta la belleza que se despliega cuando una pareja se compromete a liberarse de todo lo que ha aprendido, de manera que puedan finalmente, después de trece años de matrimonio, enamorarse. Guerrera del amor es un relato hermoso e inspirador de cómo hemos nacido para ser guerreros: fuertes, poderosos y valientes, capaces de enfrentar el dolor y reclamar el amor que está disponible para nosotros. Es crónica de un viaje hermoso y brutal que se dirige a aquellos que anhelan relaciones más profundas y verdaderas, y una vida más abundante y auténtica
A avut o copilărie nefericită, iar în adolescenţă a descoperit refugiul în alcool, droguri şi mâncatul în exces. Apoi, când l-a întalnit pe chipeşul Craig şi au întemeiat o familie, a simţit cum renaşte, cum îşi lasă în urmă trecutul şi îşi descoperă sinele autentic. Dar nimic n-a pregătit-o pentru cosmarul în care urma să se transforme viaţa ei când a primit vestea că a fost tradată de cel pe care îl iubea.


Deşi tot mai multe voci se ridică împotriva discriminării, continuăm, de cele mai multe ori incoşntient, să ne construim imaginea după cea impusă de societate. Iubirea însăşi e pervertită: femeile încearcă din răsputeri să atinga acel ideal, în timp ce bărbaţii (iar soţul autoarei nu face exceptie) sunt învăţaţi să-şi dorească un anumit tip de femeie, care de fapt, nu există ca atare. Glennon Doyle porneşte lupta de independenţă faţă de falsele idealuri ale societăţii contemporane.


Cartea autobiografică Love Warrior, a autoarei de succes Glennon Doyle, este atât o reflecţie amară asupra singurătăţii şi spaimei de a nu fi acceptată şi înteleasă, cât şi un mesaj optimist şi un îndemn: iubeşte şi luptă pentru iubirea ta!
