Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

“All I thought I knew about my husband was a lie.”

The deceit of sexual addiction is shrouding marriages in darkness and hopelessness. Countless women are discovering the shocking history of their husband’s sexual compulsions, and are left angry, depressed, numb, and asking themselves, “Why is this happening?” The dream of the perfect marriage and family has been shattered.

Meg Wilson watched her world fall apart when her husband confessed years of sexual addiction. She has an intimate knowledge of all you may have felt—and she’s lived to tell about it.

“I have been to the depths of pain unimaginable, but God was deeper still. Peace and healing are within your grasp. You can be whole again. Because regardless of what your husband has done, or is doing, there is always hope for those who seek help.”

With honesty and hopefulness, Meg uses her own story, along with other examples and Scripture, to help women cope and find their way out of the darkness of their husband’s sexual compulsion. She wants you to know that God’s first concern is for your relationship with Him—not your circumstances.

Though it may seem out of reach, there is hope after betrayal!

Meg Wilson is a regular speaker to women’s groups, Bible studies, and conferences. Five years ago she founded the Healing Hearts Ministry to offer help and hope to women whose husbands are caught in the web of sexual addiction.

More About the Author

Meg Wilson was born into a military family and moved around a great deal of her growing up years. Meg graduated from High School in England and has always had an active imagination and a love for the written word.

Since becoming a believer as a teen, God has moved Meg towards women's issues. From small group facilitator, speaker, to support group leader, she has experienced the hand of God in powerful ways. Her passion is seeing women fully partake of God's life-changing truth.

This passion was born of bitter betrayal and painful life experiences. Hope is what she found in the ashes, and hope is what she offers to other women. Meg now encourages other ladies to take a firm hold of the same healing hand she did. Her topics vary, but the theme is the same--Hope.

Meg is quick to point out that sexual addiction isn't about sex, and a sexual addict isn't just the guy you see on "To Catch A Predator." Sexual addiction has quite possibly visited the guy in the cubicle next to you at work or the pastor in your pulpit. Meg's book is about the redemption and restoration of a woman's heart that's been torn to pieces by her husband's bad choices. If you or anyone you know has been hurt by her husband's repeated use of pornography or other sexual activity, I would encourage you to take a look at Hope After Betrayal. One of the most amazing things about the book was that Meg's husband, Dave, wrote the last chapter. He encourages women that their husband's battle is truly his battle - and Dave gives these women permission to stop enabling. Hope After Betrayal is a powerful testimony of what hard work and the love of God can accomplish in a marriage when two people are willing to walk through the fire to reach for the purest gold.

Format: Paperback
Sexual addiction is a problem that runs rampant in the society of our day. There are an increasingly large number of books available on this subject, but many of these have looked at sexual addiction from the man / husband's perspective. This book was of interest to me because it looks at sexual addiction from the perspective of the woman / wife who has been betrayed. Hope After Betrayal shares the stories of four women whose lives have been forever changed by their husband's secret sexual addiction finally coming to light. Over the course of ten chapters we learn of the journey Meg (the author), Tammy, Stephanie, and Renee have undertaken to find hope and healing from their husband's betrayal. The chapters progress as follows:

* Chapter 1 - Blackout (Brutal betrayal)
* Chapter 2 - Shrouded (Waiting for direction)
* Chapter 3 - First Shimmers (Seeing the obstacles)
* Chapter 4 - Lanterns (Safe people)
* Chapter 5 - Laser (Friend of foe)
* Chapter 6 - Shadowlands (Avoiding the dark)
* Chapter 7 - Glowworms (Absorbing and applying grace)
* Chapter 8 - Firefly (The glowworm with wings)
* Chapter 9 - Prisms (Accepting God's design)
* Chapter 10 - Path Lights (The road ahead)

Two important features to note at the end of each chapter are Path Lights and Journaling. Path Lights has between three to six scripture references that will be an encouragement to women who are walking through each stage of their own journey. The Journaling portion contained in each chapter is an important feature of this book. Meg encourages women to keep a personal journal as they walk through each milestone of their journey towards hope and healing. Journaling is not something that comes easily for everyone.

Format: Paperback
I found Meg Wilson's Hope After Betrayal to be an uplifting, compassionate book for women who feel hopeless and betrayed after discovering their husband's unfaithfulness and sexual addiction.
It's as if God is speaking through Meg and talking directly to the reader. She gives examples of how different women react and deal with this problem and how God guided her on the path to healing from the deep hurt she, herself, suffered and how to avoid detours that make the situation much worse. Meg offers journaling exercises that empower women to take control of their lives and uncover issues that need to be dealt with and then how to go about dealing with them. She also cites Bible verses that apply directly to women dealing with such a desperate situation and offer hope and guidance and strengthen one's faith. There are so many women who need to read Meg Wilson's book so they can be free of turmoil and despair. It offers rays of hope for women who don't know where to turn.

I am the wife of a porn addict. My husband has struggled with his addiction for several years, and for all of our eleven year long marriage. I finally reached my breaking point last year (I got tired of being chosen second to pornographic images) and put my foot down. He is currently attending a recovery program and trying his best to beat this...but I needed help for ME. I purchased this book in hopes that it would give me real world advice on how to deal with this situation (i.e. how to get over anger, hurt, betrayal- and get my self esteem back!). The book does help in the sense that you read about others who have gone through the same thing and it validates your feelings. It is great in that it doesn't blame the wife for the husbands problem (as some do) and it gets somewhat into the science behind sexual addiction. It focuses a lot on the mind and behavior of the addict- including an interview with the authors husband (a recovering addict)in which he states his perspective at the end of the book. But, it does not give the real world advice I was looking for. Mainly, it urges women to seek help from the Bible and through prayer, and to find a competent therapist/counselor to help you through. I'm not saying that is a bad thing, but I was looking for advice on what to do outside of or in addition to those things- and it doesn't have that.

Meg Wilson has written an honest and revealing account of discovering her husband's sexual addiction and the devastation that followed. She talks openly about her journey out of despair and betrayal into a life of hope and loving again. Meg gives Godly advice in every chapter and shares resources that can aid in the restoration process. Her husband shares his story and thoughts in the last chapter. He answers the questions that the wife of a sex addict needs answering. This is "must" reading for any woman who has a husband, boyfriend, father, or son struggling with sexual addiction.
