This is not something I can be of help with. However here are links to some articles from PsychCentral's archives on the subject to how divorce affects the children. Since I don't know how old your daughter is I've included both articles regarding young children as well as adult children. Hope some of this helps:

There are some kid targeted books available, one that I ordered a little after my divorce was "When Mom and Dad Seperate: Children Can Learn to Cope with Grief from Divorce - Maarge Heegaard. I'm not sure how age appropriate that would be for your daughter, my children were 7,4,3 when my divorce finalized, plus my mom passed away right before my divorce finalized. Because of that, with both losses, it's hard to be a 'can do' voice of wisdom, per se.
Any struggles that I'm experiencing with teen and tween sons now is difficult to point back to divorce. However, back then when it weighed heavy on me, since reality is so much out there discusses just how big of odds stacked against from such a reality exists. It exists so much so that it's beyond helpful. Is it better to raise inside dysfunction, I often flip back to?:end soapbox:...when it weighed on me, it was pointed out that if at least one parent strives for personal health, then the odds aren't so badly stacked.
Focus on being a beacon for her, is my advice.
