Book Clubs Pay it Forward While Reading

Too Much Gold to Flush The Gift of Infidelity

In June of 2009 my husband of three months dumped me for another woman.  In the devastating aftermath of suffering and humiliation, I vowed I would never find myself in that miserable situation again.  As I began to heal, I decided to write a book to facilitate the process, and I wanted to share what I learned during this experience.  From the beginning of this journey, I committed to helping women in shelters since these individuals were likely going through the same anguish I was undergoing, except a lack of resources made their situation much worse than mine.

Initially, I wanted my book to expose my husband as a sex addict and pedophile while painting me as the wronged heroine.  After all, my ex-husband now resides in prison.  Doesn’t that say something about what a jerk he was and what a victim I had been?  Then the awful truth hit me between the eyes – I made the choices that got me into this mess.  With that realization, I discovered an incredible gift – this situation offered an opportunity to grow that I would never get any other way.  This book tells my story – every embarrassing detail as well as each triumph I discovered along the way.  Excavating my early years and exploring the beliefs I formed about myself in childhood gave me powerful insights.  While processing all this, I shifted from seeing myself as a victim to realizing my ability to create a life full of meaning and purpose.

Sample review:

Pat takes us on her self-awareness journey, and we get to visualize her blossoming into the person she was meant to be. So many people can identify with the feeling of not having a voice. When that voice is found, or finally listened to, it is a time to celebrate. One might see it as the true beginning of their life. It is my hope that anyone reading her book will discover new insights and strengths about their self and others.

By Diane Savage, founder and CEO of Bay Area Turning Point, Women’s Shelter.
