 The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. ~ William Makepeace Thackeray

There is nothing like going through a horrific experience to realize where I have gotten off course, and to realize with staggering awakening that I have been lying to the person staring back at me in the mirror.

When my husband of three months announced he was in love with someone else, I was understandably devastated.  In fact I was wallowing in my own misery and looking for a means of escaping my heartache when I read Same Kind of Different as Me by Ron Hall and Denver Moore. This true story tells how two men from very different backgrounds united to memorialize the work of someone they both love after she died. Talk about a cosmic two-by-four!  Here were people dealing with death yet still open to using that grief to propel them toward doing something for others – like build a chapel in the homeless shelter where one lived and the other volunteered.

As a writer, it made perfect sense to me that I would also write a book since I felt it would help me understand what had gotten me into that situation – who I had become to get into such a mess, who that person was in the mirror.  And like the authors of Same Kind of Different As Me, I wanted my experience to benefit someone else.  That’s when I decided Too Much Gold to Flush, The Gift of Infidelity would help women’s shelters.  The women they serve go through a fate much worse than I had endured.  Most of them are not able to support themselves.  Nor do they have the emotional support I found at that time.

Anyone that runs a shelter can tell you how expensive it is to keep their doors open.  That’s another reason I wanted my book to benefit women’s shelters.  One-half of the purchase price of Too Much Gold to Flush, The Gift of Infidelity goes to the women’s shelter that the purchaser designates.  Click here to purchase a copy and designate which shelter you want to benefit.

The shelters I am featuring this week are in Indiana.  This link: Indiana will take you to the page for Indiana on the Women’s Shelters, a nationwide directory of shelters for women.  On their home page, you can either click on a map, enter a zip code, or scroll down to a list of states to find a location closest to you.
