Virtually every one of us has been, or will be, in some way touched by infidelity. Why is this happening? How can we make good of these experiences? The voices of other women who have travelled this road join the authors in this unique and intimate exploration of the many faces of infidelity.

Polls show that around 85% of people believe infidelity is wrong. More than 90% of married individuals do not approve of extramarital sex, and yet almost half admit to having had an affair. What drives this dichotomy between what we say we should do and what we do?

This book offers understanding and new perspectives. It is for women recovering from a current betrayal, and women carrying the remnants of past betrayals. It is for those wanting to protect their own relationships from infidelity, and those seeking to better understand and support others through this challenging time.

“A brave and searching book for the intelligent reader hungry for reflection, understanding and validation.”—Rachel Morris, psychotherapist to Cosmopolitan, UK

“Betrayal hurts, and the consequences are profound, deep and long-lasting. After His Affair is balanced with contemporary research, author insights, spiritual revelations, and messages of healing, strength, and empowerment. ”
-Kassia Wosick, PhD, Sex, Love, and Fidelity: A Study of Contemporary Romantic Relationships

Memoir – In His Way

In His WayIn His Way
By Rebecca Duvall
Published: August 2014
ISBN: 978-1499280401
ASIN: B00MO01VIE
Genre: Memoir, Women, Christianity
Formats Available For Review: print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), kindle

Book Description:
Throughout much of my married life, I lived under the illusion that I had it all together – it was everyone else that needed fixing. Several years into my second marriage my husband, a Deputy Sheriff, became a workaholic and was never home. Meanwhile, I became a volunteeraholic, too busy to face the fact that we had become two strangers under one roof, raising three kids.

God revealed Himself to me through the different women I volunteered with. As my heart slowly opened to God’s presence, my marriage came crashing down around me. As I cried out for God’s help, I discovered my husband’s affair. I found myself surrounded by faithful people who gave me the strength to face the problems in my marriage and the tools needed to begin fixing it.

Over the next four years, my husband’s health deteriorated and he was forced to retire. Through this God continually showed me I was In His Way and then, when He knew He had my attention, He would proceed to show me how to do things In His Way. In the end, what God told me to do, saved my husband’s life, and our marriage. What was broken is now fixed by the grace and love of God.

Family/Relationships – Dadprovement: A Journey from Careerist to Adoptive Father to a Real Husband and Dad

DadprovementDadprovement: A Journey from Careerist to Adoptive Father to a Real Husband and Dad
By Patrick R. Riccards
Publisher: Turning Stone Press
ISBN: 978-1618520845
ASIN: B00LQ29DQI
Published: July 2014
Genre: Family/Relationships
Formats Available For Review: print (only available to qualified reviewers/bloggers), kindle

Sometimes staggering events happen in life and we re thrown completely off balance. Chaos ensues both internally and externally. It was one such event that was pivotal for Patrick Riccards and set him on a journey of discovery toward what was truly important to him.

When Riccards suddenly (and inexplicably) loses his job, he is devastated, but it forces him to take stock of his life to re-examine his relationships, his perceptions of himself, his fears, his values, and dreams for the future. Dadprovement is his raw and honest account of recognizing that he wasn t the great father or husband he thought he was, that he had simply been going through the motions.

Starting with the adoption of two children from Guatemala, Riccards writes of the vast obstacles faced in the international adoption process, the challenges of building a family, and the rollercoaster ride that follows as one tries to balance career and home life.

Part adoption story, part career memoir, and a complete telling of one man’s path to personal and professional redemption, Dadprovement details some of the difficult truths to inspire and help other parents wrestling with how to live up to society’s expectations when it comes to career and family.

By getting to the root of what is truly important, Riccards recognizes what a terrific support staff he has in his family and that anything is possible with them by his side.

In this compelling and heart wrenching book, A.J. Shaw presents a first-hand account of his descent into the web of addiction. Growing up in a home where Scottish discipline meets strict southern control, A.J.’s physical abuse and verbal degradation triggers a downward spiral into chaos and despair. Shaw reveals his intimate thoughts, feelings and regrets as he darkly tells his story of remorse, anger, pain, suffering, and guilt. It is a love story, a survival story, and a story that shows only too well the entanglement of the web that ensnares the individual in a way such that he has difficulty extracting himself. Through the love for his daughters, his belief of a higher power, and the assistance of his recovery program, he is able to gain back his life. Hoping to help others who may be wrestling with the addictive dependency described in Shaw’s story, he writes to show there is always a way out, there is always hope.
