It is a no-nonsense, honest but compassionate guide to surviving all forms of betrayal, from the romantic to the parental. It is hard to believe how much useful information the author has packed into this slender tome.

NO HELP Dec 14, 2007
I found this book to be filled with useless generalities that could not be applied to my circumstances. The book is written by a woman on her 3rd marriage. For me this is a strike against her credibility.

Lynda Bevan resides in south Wales, United Kingdom with her husband. She is currently employed as a manager of a charity which supports individuals suffering with HIV. She has brought extensive personal and professional knowledge to print through the book "Life After Betrayal: A Practical Guide." Mrs. Bevan has counseled many who were recovering from the pain of betrayal in their personal lives as well as guided married couples.
Mrs. Bevan stresses throughout her writing the pain and difficult recovery anyone must overcome to heal from betrayal. This can be from any relationship including family members, co-workers, romantic partners and others. She writes in a very straightforward manner with many examples, descriptions and commonsense approaches. Although damaging in many degrees, this guide will direct the reader on ways to overcome and heal from the agony of betrayal. One will be able to regain their sense of trust in others to continue on to establish healthy relationships.
From the beginning of life, when complete trust is not only desired, but required, each relationship we face is different. All interactions by two individuals include a portion by each in contributing to the final betrayal. To place blame solely on the other is not only inaccurate but prevents the future ability to end this pattern of denial of fault. It is not the subject of who is as fault that needs addressing as much as the wisdom gained as to how to change your actions and reactions to bring forth a change in self and communication. The negative affects of betrayal includes the feelings of jealousy and control as well as others. The positive effects of healing may be acceptance and forgiveness. This will allow you to love again in a healthy relationship which is supportive, not destructive.
This book is intended for those recovering from betrayal, however; I would recommend it to anyone entering adolescence to young adulthood. It may likely prevent future heartache and misunderstanding in the future.
If you think of yourself as a victim, this book is for you! From regrets to love, Mrs. Bevan will show you how you can trust again even after betrayal. In reading "Life After Betrayal: A Practical Guide," you will discover the difference between loving someone because you need them, and needing someone because you love them. This is a straightforward, easy-to-read and put-in-action book.
