“Adulterer’s Wife is very clever and well-written. Such a good idea too.”
—Celia Walden, US Editor-at-Large, Daily Telegraph.
From the publisher: This book enables wives to find the silver lining in a husband’s adultery. It helps women regain control of their lives and shows them ways to obtain more happiness and freedom than they had before they knew about their partner’s cheating.
From the author: I hope readers find my book to be helpful and therapeutic. It is specifically geared towards the wives of adulterers rather than for their philandering partners. In the past, it was common for women to keep silent about physical and emotional abuse from their husbands. Instead of marital infidelity being an embarrassing secret to keep hidden, I hope that this book will help to bring the subject more out into the open, so that women no longer suffer in silence but instead are able to take charge of their circumstances.
Fighting the Old Boy’s Club
Perhaps some men will take a strong dislike to what I’ve written in my book or in my blogs, preferring to keep their females in “Stepford Wife” mode rather than allowing them to take care of their own interests and gain independence. As far as adultery is concerned, there is somewhat of an “Old Boys Club” around the subject, with men covering for each other to hide the activity from the wives, and where new conquests may even be seen as a badge of honor.
Rather than playing the blame game, I have tried to offer wives as pragmatic an approach as possible on how to deal with adultery. The aim is to provide some tools to women who are deciding whether or not to stay with unfaithful husbands, so that they can truly thrive rather than be crushed by the experience.
