- About the Book
HOW TO BE CHERISHED:
How to Be Cherished is the third book by authors Marilyn Graman and Maureen Walsh, co-founders of Life Works, a Greenwich Village firm that helps women create fulfilling lives, including finding the men of their dreams and keeping the love alive through the challenges of cohabitation. How to Be Cherished is based on a seminar of the same name taught at Life Works.
After the bloom is off the romance, many women live their lives between a rock (an island of loneliness) and a hard place (their man). Life Works is often their last step before heading out the door -- through separation, divorce, or an affair. Yet Life Works has not only saved marriages -- they've shown women how to be cherished by their men, how to be desired as though the relationship were a new bud ripe with promise.
For many women, the heart has become a closed room, shut off in self-defense. Chapter by chapter, Graman and Walsh show readers how to open that door again -- ten degrees at first, then wider and wider -- until there is enough room to hold the man you have -- the whole man, his good parts and his bad parts. When that happens, most men respond in kind, opening their hearts to you, treating you with tenderness and affection, anticipating your needs and keeping their promises.
In short, the answer to having the love you desire is not in this book -- or any book -- or any other man; it's in yourself, in your heart, which waits to be warmed and wakened. How to Be Cherished shows you how to access the love you want. Some of the secrets revealed in this practical guidebook and illustrated with the stories of real women overcoming the obstacles to lasting love are:
Intended for women in all stages of relationship, How to Be Cherished offers a new model for relationships by recognizing women's intrinsic power and revealing the deep desire men have to please their partners.
