And a liar, and pathetic, and alone in life

I liked After the Affair, after I found out about my H affair it was very hard to focus on much of anything and that book was a nice easy read...I did not like the book Repairing Your Marriage After His Afair...all I got out of that book was blah blah blah, baby your husband blah blah blah...

Sexual Detours by Holly Hein is not mentioned much but in my opinion was very good and touched quite a bit on FOO issues that made sense.
