Reviews
"A skillfully written, thought-provoking account that positively reconsiders an antagonist as an important teacher."
--Kirkus Reviews

"A unique kind of paranormal and metaphysical memoir . . . an inherently fascinating and emotionally involving read from cover to cover."
--Midwest Book Review

"What if you accidentally married your worst enemy? With unflinching honesty and hard-earned grace, Kirsten Mickelwait peels the shiny façade off her catastrophic marriage to reveal how she not only survived the lies, betrayals, and lawsuits, but also found her way to compassion. If you don't think on your ex fondly, The Ghost Marriage will teach you why you should."
--Meredith May, author of The Honey Bus and Loving Edie

"The Ghost Marriage is an absorbing tale about what happens when you marry Prince Charming and the expected 'Happily Ever After' erodes into a kind of 'Cursed Ever After.' It's a story of survival, of adjusted ambition, of how to be quick on your feet when your daily foundation crumbles in midlife."
--Julia Scheeres, author of Jesusland and A Thousand Lives

"With The Ghost Marriage, Kirsten Mickelwait--in bracing, unsentimental prose-- brings us in close to the disturbing history of her troubled marriage. It's abundantly satisfying to watch her move through each crisis toward new compassion--for herself, but also for her deceased ex-husband."
--Angela Pneuman, author of Lay It on My Heart and Home Remedies

"By turns hilarious, lyrical, suspenseful, and touching, Kirsten Mickelwait's memoir pulls us into the whirlpool of her unique marriage--then spits us out into the dazzling light of what that marriage came to mean. Supremely well written, and with a captivating honesty."
--Veronica Chater, author of Waiting for the Apocalypse
