When Love Breaks Your Heart

When Love Breaks Your Heart

Apr 13, 2022-- When science journalist Florence William's husband of 25 years unexpectedly asked for a divorce, William found herself feeling dazed and ill. ""Physically, I felt like my body had been plugged into a faulty electrical socket," she writes. "In addition to weight loss, I'd stopped sleeping. I was getting sick: My pancreas wasn't working right. It was hard to think straight."To help understand what was happening to her, she turned away from self-help book advice--like "learn to love yourself first" or "beware of rebound relationships" -- and looked to science instead. The result is her book, 'Heartbreak'-- part memoir, part exploration into the science and practice of healing from heartbreak--which offers hope and guidance to anyone who's experienced heartbreak themselves.
