In MY APRIL FOOL WIVES, Olin Joseph Tunnell shares his personal story of divorce and recovery with insights for confronting all kinds of losses in life. Tunnell was married twice to women who were both born on April 1. He often jokes that only an April fool would marry him. He is a Methodist minister who was damaged emotionally and professionally after his first wife of fifteen years divorced him. He reflects on important lessons that he learned. All forms of loss in this life provide opportunities for recovery and joyful living. An excerpt from his book reads, “If you’re hurting, I want to share a message offering peace and reconciliation. No matter how much anger erupts from divorce, there are future possibilities beyond your pain and suffering if you have faith and trust God’s word.” Today, Tunnell is friendly with his first wife and he and his second wife have been together for thirty-three years. His journey is a triumphant testimony of how it is possible to overcome tragedies and begin anew. Brilliant in its honesty and truth, MY APRIL FOOL WIVES is a thoughtful look into the reality of divorce and an inspiring story of courage, forgiveness and faith.
