About the Author

The writing of this book was a collaboration of efforts. Amanda has a permanent injury that inhibits her ability to use a keyboard or hold a pen for long periods of time, but she felt she had a story to tell. Her husband, Neil, put her story in print. Amanda and Neil are currently living in Virginia and enjoying the freedom of retirement with their family and friends.

Very quick read and done in a pleasant voice...could almost see the author talking to me about her life. We are all responsible for our own destiny in life...If you are not happy and someone you are with is never there for you , you need to change the situation. A hard thing to do but in the end worth it! It is a brave person that can face this not so easy task of divorce and breaking up a family especially when children are involved. Highly recommend this to young women out there!

Dr. Phil says, "Every choice you make -- including the thoughts you think -- has consequences... If you choose to stay with a destructive partner, then you choose the consequences of pain and suffering... When you start choosing the right behavior and thoughts -- which will take a lot of discipline -- you'll get the right consequences." It took awhile for Amanda to realize that staying with a destructive partner had negative consequences. Some people 'get this' right away. Others, it takes awhile. But at some point, a person has to decide what is right for themselves, and in this case, for his/her children. Amanda finally got it. The negative spouse tried several times to make her think he loved her. But, in reality, he only loved himself. Congratulations, Amanda, for breaking loose of the negative spouse, and moving forward to a life of peace and love.

A wonderful heart wrenching book. I found myself fully captivated by this book and couldn't put it down. The author is very relatable and personable which makes this book more enjoyable to read. I recommend this book for all ages, I being a young woman. It contains life lessons and sets good examples for mothers and women everywhere.

The sad marriage experience of "Amanda " was not uncommon among the women of the Baby Boomer generation. Many men and women of this era were often caught up in the illusions of "free-spirit" and "freedom of expression" which often led to hedonistic, self-centered behavior. So many soldiers believed their war sacrifices in Vietnam Nam entitled them to behaving badly toward family and friends when they returned. Those loved ones suffered in silence because of a sense of duty and gratitude toward those war heroes. "Amanda" maintained her focus on her children and that seemed to bolster her strength. Maybe an alternate title could be, "Good Wife Gone Sane". The reader certainly imagines sitting on the porch with "Amanda" and a cup of coffee as she confides her story. I read this book in one sitting because I felt compelled to learn how the author found her voice.

I could relate to this story on several levels as could anyone who has gone through a difficult marriage. The author was painfully honest in that it felt like we were sitting on the couch telling each other 'our' stories. It was a good read. Although it bothers me that the author dug into her painful past to tell her story for us it was comforting to know others have been where we have been and survived. The book was well written and honest in the telling. Thank you, N.E. Laine.....well done!

I really enjoyed this book as it addresses a real problem that so many women face in their marriage. So many women try to hold their marriages together despite the mental and emotional abuse they endure. The resulting low self-esteem affects their health and also affects their children tremendously. Thank u for bringing more awareness to this problem and helping the thousands of women in similar situations to know they are not alone. This book is well written and I applaud the author for sharing her story with me!

First let me say this book is a great read. I titled it "Hits Home" because I could relate to so many instances in this book that related to my "old life". It takes a lot of courage to walk away from a marriage when children are involved. I speak from experience having four children of my own. It's not easy. This book is very relatable to my life. Parts of this book made me cry, parts put a smile on my face. I am so proud of the author having the courage to "put it all out there". You will enjoy this read!!!

What begins seemingly as a "coming of age" story, this novel evolves into the nightmare of an increasingly difficult and untenable marriage. Raised in a lovingly overprotective family, and marrying quite young, Amanda is naive and ill-equipped to deal with Jim, a chameleon of a man whose true colors don't show until after she has fallen in love with him and happily agreed to marry him....
