In the middle of a storm, on her 20th Wedding Anniversary, Ava Woods’ husband declared he was leaving her. She felt discarded, broken and crushed. Her whirlwind of emotions swirling around what she once thought was her forever.

Through sharing her story, Ava takes you on a journey from being blindsided in love, to rebuilding your life, your self-confidence and learning how to love yourself again.

After a wave of panic, with questions bombarding you like: ‘Who am I now?’ and ‘How am I going to cope financially and provide for my family?’ This book will show you how to reclaim your power.

Everything happens for a reason. There is a design for your life with lessons throughout for you to embrace. If you allow it, a life guided by love, places you on a path of deeper self-awareness, enabling you to live authentically and in your truth. Because after the storm, the sun follows… it’s time for you to shine.

Guided By Love contains stories, teachings and a map to:

Break out of the cycles keeping you stuck in one sided relationships

Love yourself and what you stand for

Attain a greater sense of clarity, calm and connection

Compassionate and insightful

A beautifully written book full of compassion and understanding. A very 'human' account of how to turn things around following difficult life experiences. I found 'Guided by Love' to be surprisingly uplifting.... thank you Ava Woods :-)

Does what it says on the tin

Really nicely written. There are so many memories of heart break and angst out there, this book is refreshingly the opposite. We get glimpses of the heartbreak that lead to the journey, but this is so much more. Simple guidance from the heart of a writer that found healing and wants to share her kit.

A Really Practical Guide

This book is something very special. The author gives a very personal account of heartbreak but gives the reader lots of opportunities to personalise this and make it relatable for them.
