About the Book

Author: Shirley Quiring Mozena

Whether your marriage was blissful or challenging, lengthy or short, it didn’t end the way you imagined. Regardless of how you found yourself without a life partner, you may be at a point where you’d like to experience the love of a spouse again. Authors Shirley and Jim Mozena experienced devastating losses and then struggles in their relationships before finding renewed love with each other, and in Second Chance at Love they offer their insights to these difficult questions:
  • Are you really ready?
  • Is now the time?
  • How do you know if you’ve found the right one?
  • Is the potential pain of losing another spouse worth it?
The authors approach their answers with practical reality and their own vulnerability. They share the experiences of their first marriages, their second marriages, their journeys through what seemed like devastating losses, and the gifts of finding love and another chance to share their lives with a spouse after death and divorce.

In addition to the down-to-earth guidance on the situations you face when considering marrying again, Shirley and Jim have created valuable questionnaires to identify issues and facilitate discussions with potential mates. The information contained in this book will give you confidence and peace as you navigate these hopeful waters.

Author Interview with Shirley

Please give a little introduction to your book

Shirley: More and more men and women over fifty-five are choosing to get married again after death and divorce—though navigating such a path isnt always a happy bed of roses. But the authors of Second Chance at Love: Navigating the Path to Remarriage have traversed these rocky shores and offer practical insights for those considering romantic relationships after dealing with devastating losses due to death or divorce.
How long did it take to write this book? 
Shirley: Two years.
What do you hope readers take away from your book? 
Shirley: That loving again after death or divorce is possible. Finding another mate can be successful—but there are definite areas to consider before marrying again.
What setting do you enjoy writing in the most? 
Shirley: I have an office with lots of photos on my walls. The photos come from my past. One of me climbing a mountain and reminding me how difficult it was. Another of my husband, handsomely standing in his tuxedo from a cruise we took a few years ago. Past photos of my grandchildren. There’s a placard with part of I Corinthians 13… "Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things." A good reminder of how my words have influence on others and the importance of them. Of course, there are shelves of books—I love books—they are my friends.
