Hailing from Carmel, New York, Stacey met her first husband in the 8th grade. The two married in 1996, then divorced a brief five years later. In Eat, Drink and Remarry, Stacey revisits her post-divorce years with candor and a reflective eye. Tucker chooses not to sugar-coat her emotional turmoil, but doesn’t dwell on the bitterness that so often marks divorce. Instead, she champions perseverance and the importance of emerging triumphantly. The book also includes accounts from women with similar stories of love lost and new beginnings.
Eat, Drink and Remarry covers the courtship of Ms. Tucker and her new husband, who had just divorced when they began dating. She gives a snapshot of their romance and current life with a blended family, comprised of her three step-children, plus the 4-year-old son they share. Life after round two became increasingly busy as Tucker launched StaceyLu’s Confections in 2004 -- a custom cookie business providing birth announcements, wedding favors and the like. “I’ve always had an entrepreneurial spirit and loved having my own business.” No longer baking, Stacey’s new focus is on writing a series of “Life Guides,” in addition to her popular blog, “Saying It Out Loud” at www.staceylu.com.
Eat, Drink and Remarry also advocates the need to establish a support system early on, be it a wedding planner, family, friends, or simply, your fiance. “When planning my second wedding, I felt isolated and overwhelmed, having taken on every aspect of the job. In my research, I learned others felt the same, so I wanted my book to be the written equivalent of a good friend.”
Ultimately, Eat, Drink and Remarry brings forth a message of hope -- hope for self-acceptance, hope for a second chance, hope for newfound love. Tucker’s book affirms “worth from within” -- a message she wants readers to have and to hold.
