There is hope for the future.

Monique Honaman had been married for seventeen years when her husband dropped the proverbial bomb with a simple phrase: “How do you think we’re doing?” Two months later, she became a self-proclaimed cliché—forty years old, two kids, and still wondering what happened.

In a candid interview with Kathie Lee and Hoda on the Today Show, Monique discussed her experience with divorce and what prompted her to write The High Road Has Less Traffic: Honest advice on the path through love and divorce. She said, “So many people get stuck, and for me [my divorce] was a lesson in moving forward.” When asked what advice she had for others going through divorce, her response was simple: “Know there is hope for the future.”

The High Road Has Less Traffic--half memoir, half self-help title—is an inspiring roadmap for marriage, a positive exit strategy for "surviving" divorce, and a powerful life philosophy that supports superior decision-making in all facets of raising a family. With current divorce rates remaining high, this philosophy could not come at a better time. It is estimated that 20% of first marriages end in separation or divorce within five years. 33% of marriages don’t make it to ten years. And by fifteen years, a full 43% of couples have called it quits.

Readers and experts are giving The High Road rave reviews. Dr. Marcia H. Rogers calls it “an excellent resource for parents experiencing divorce,” and Dr. Bill Lampton, author of The Complete Communicator, hails it as a “must-read.” Dr. D. B. Shelnutt, Jr. states, “This is a phenomenal read that will help bring healing for those wounded from divorce. I could not put it down.” In the spirit of giving back, a portion of proceeds from book sales is being donated to organizations that help women and children transition through divorce.
