HEARTBREAK A Personal and Scientific Journey

by | Read by Florence Williams

Contemporary Culture • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2022

Journalist Florence Williams intertwines journal entries, conversations with experts and friends, therapy sessions, and the sounds of nature to provide an honest and intriguing description of the phenomenon of heartbreak. She candidly shares her own heartbreaking journey after her twenty-five-year marriage ends, particularly as she starts noticing the physical effects of the breakup on her own body. Vulnerable and refreshingly human, Williams provides helpful scientific information and relatable stories about heartache, which she pieces together to convey how grief can take a toll on a person and how to heal that damage. Engaging and gentle in her approach, Williams explains with honesty and courage the wisdom that can be learned from love lost and loneliness.
