I feel like reading a good fiction book about a person moving on from a bad relationship would be really therapeutic right now. Like reading PS I love you after losing someone yknow? Any reccomendations?

Check out Elizabeth Buchan's books. "Revenge of the Middle Age Woman" comes to mind first, but she has a few others.

I too liked "Revenge of the Middle Age Woman". I started reading the book but the UK content was a big trigger for me.

I saw the movie first and loved it. It was American.

You might enjoy the book. I don't know. But can highly recommend the movie.

'she's come undone' by wally lamb, although it may be more convoluted than what you're looking for. Sort of coming of age and moving on from everything from a poor upbringing to a series of bad relationships. I've loved it since forever though, good luck.

The book On Mystic Lake by Kristin Hannah was a tough, tiggery read but the author knows what it feels like to be a BS. The story of a wife who is betrayed and then goes out and find herself.
