Sleeping With a Stranger

Availability: Ready to download

What happens when the strong, ambitious man you married fades into a stranger with an illness no doctor can diagnose? When Jessica Zimmerman's husband Brian contracted a mysterious illness that left him 60 pounds underweight and a prisoner to their master bathroom, she had no idea the journey of self-discovery on which they were both about to embark. As Jessica and Brian w What happens when the strong, ambitious man you married fades into a stranger with an illness no doctor can diagnose? When Jessica Zimmerman's husband Brian contracted a mysterious illness that left him 60 pounds underweight and a prisoner to their master bathroom, she had no idea the journey of self-discovery on which they were both about to embark. As Jessica and Brian worked to solve the riddle of his illness, they also had a harder question to answer: was their marriage even worth saving? Sleeping with a Stranger is a searing, honest and hilarious memoir about learning how to love even in the darkest of moments, and how to find yourself when the compass is lost. As Jessica's business takes off, and the demands of being the sole provider increase, she begins to discover who she was always meant to be, even if that goes against the Southern culture in which she was raised. Bucking up against old ideas and even older Southern traditions, Jessica's story is also a rallying cry for women coming to terms with their trauma in order to find healing. Sleeping with a Stranger is a testament to the power of healing--how we can heal our bodies, our spirits, our relationships with others, and ultimately, ourselves. As Brian finally recovers, and Jessica recognizes that she can never go back to the old script that so many women follow, they begin to negotiate a new marriage and learn the greatest lesson of all: we can reclaim our true selves at any time.

    Sleeping with a Stranger is Simply Brilliant!! This book is hands down the most authentically raw books I have ever read. It drew me in from the beginning. I had a hard time putting the book down yet I forced myself to so I could extend the enjoyment it gave me. I had so many emotions going through me as I read this book. One second I would be laughing, the next second tears welled up in my eyes, and next second the book brought smiles to my face.

I had so many emotions going through me as I read this book. One second I would be laughing, the next second tears welled up in my eyes, and next second the book brought smiles to my face. This book is truly a beautiful story and it is amazingly well written. I’m so grateful Jessica shared her incredibly dark, painful, and inspirational story with the world. It leaves you reflecting on yourself and wanting more out of life. This book is filled with little treasures, moments, and nuggets of wisdom. Happiness really does depend on one's own self. You have to do the internal work and put in the effort to get more out of life. This book is filled with little treasures, moments, and nuggets of wisdom.

    I knew Jessica back in our Kitchen Store days. It was a really special experience to read her story. The vulnerability and courage that she shows by telling this story really blew me away. She's not afraid to admit those dark thoughts that many of us have at times, but never share with anyone. Her story of how being raised in the South and how that shaped her views of what marriage "should" look like really resonated. I have felt I was battling against those ideals for many times in my life! Whi I knew Jessica back in our Kitchen Store days. It was a really special experience to read her story.

I have felt I was battling against those ideals for many times in my life! While Jessica's story if her own unique experience, there are so many things that the reader can connect with. No matter what your life journey has brought to you, we all have to eventually step back and look within ourselves if we want to find the real answers to our own peace and happiness. You will not be disappointed with this read!!

    You may not have heard of this memoir yet - the author isn’t a celebrity, we’re from the same hometown. But if you like memoirs or inspiring stories, you probably don’t want to miss this one. I downloaded it yesterday with the intention of starting it...but I literally couldn’t put it down and read the whole thing. I had to set an alarm so that I would stop reading and cook dinner last night. 😆 Jessica Zimmerman is beyond talented as a floral designer and entrepreneur, and has always appeared to You may not have heard of this memoir yet - the author isn’t a celebrity, we’re from the same hometown. But if you like memoirs or inspiring stories, you probably don’t want to miss this one. I downloaded it yesterday with the intention of starting it...but I literally couldn’t put it down and read the whole thing. I had to set an alarm so that I would stop reading and cook dinner last night. 😆 Jessica Zimmerman is beyond talented as a floral designer and entrepreneur, and has always appeared to live effortlessly. This book is a refreshingly honest look at the inside of her life and a look at who she really is. It’s blunt. It’s honest. It’s inspiring. It’s a great book.
