Science writer Florence Williams explores the pain of losing a marriage in “Heartbreak.”

    In “Heartbreak: A Personal and Scientific Journey,” celebrated science writer Florence Williams (Breasts, The Nature Fix) explores the pain that took over her mind, body and soul as she struggled to understand why losing her 25-year old marriage felt so bad. As she searched for answers, Williams, a contributor to Outside Magazine, National Geographic and other publications, turned to nature, neuroscientists and good friends to figure out what hurts and what heals on the path to recovery.
