This book really hit a raw nerve. It is well written and describes all the processes and feelings you go through either in separation from the one you love also the devastation of an unexpected death particularly of someone you love unconditionally.
It is so hard to trust again when you have been constantly hurt and abused due to your partners addiction. As it is written 'you don't know who you spouse is when they are having an affair with the bottle'.
It is heartbreaking to walk away particularly when you have made the commitment for better or worse. To know even though you made those vows but to know the difference in enabling your partner is truly heartbreaking.
This book is well worth reading if your spouse has and addiction and keep own the buttons to push particularly if you have strong religious values.
Thank you for the real and emotional journey you took me on Deborah, it has been a journey, reality check enough to give me strength as to why I must stay separated from my husband no matter how much I want him back in my life. You have given me the strength to say what needs to be said and allow him to decide who he truly loves me, the bottle, gambling or as I recently found out affair. All but wrenching stuff and emotions. Also actions that are not àcceptavle in my life, marriage and me as a person.
A brief background on me before anyone makes judgement. His gambling and drinking were an eye opener when we first married. I thought through my love and encouragement he could overcome his issues. I prayed daily for guidance. I fell ill 10 years ago leaving me very ill and in a wheelchair. I tried to explain to my husband that there were going to be aspects of our lives where I could not do what he could such as travel. I encouraged him to travel, go overseas to see his family etc. Out of all the things I never thought would happen was my husband having an affair, I knew how he shunned it in other people..
I know my declining health was talking it's toll on him given I was so young when it happened. I did look at the gambling and drinking were illnesses in there own right but sadly I could not accept the affair. As much as my husband wants us back together leaving one vice left, drinking, I can't do it as I can't take the abuse anymore. As I mentioned this book has reaffirmed that sadly..
Again thank you for such a well written book and the realism.
I loved the fact that it showed the ups & downs of a marriage & reliance on God's strength. I can't wait to read the 2nd book.

It is a wonderful live story that is not too explicit.
I cannot tolerate a coward nor a whiner. The girl, Kathryn, is both. In spades.Read more
