I have never hated a man enough to give his diamonds back.  ~ Zsa Zsch 14 p 254a Gabor


No one gets married thinking they will three months later start considering their options around divorce.  That was not my mindset when I married, but three months later when my husband decided he was in love with someone else that’s exactly what I started looking at.

My book, Too Much Gold to Flush, The Gift of Infidelity, was one of the “diamonds” that came out of this abrupt change in my life.  Initially I wanted to write it to lambast this man and show the world what a jerk he is, but it didn’t take me long to realize I was the fool who married him in the first place.  At that point, I started looking at what my part had been – what attracted me to him, why I ignored the obvious indicator, and what I had to learn and gain from this experience.

I had just decided I would write Too Much Gold to Flush, The Gift of Infidelity when I knew with perfect clarity that I wanted it to benefit 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 Iowa.  This link: Iowa will take you to the page for Iowa 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.
