Item description for Always Listen to the Ravings of a Mad Woman by JulieAnn Henneman...
Corinne Young has no idea why she's making out with her dentist. Not only is she cheating on her husband of 17 years, but she needs a root canal. The kind of oral care she's getting really doesn't help her toothache. It doesn't help her heartache either. Corinne, a suburban Mormon housewife, is about to walk down the perilous road of addiction, and she can't see the on-coming car. After years of being second in her husband's life, work being his passion and escape, Corinne discovers a dark secret, one that will alter the way she sees her world forever. Her husband, Brent, is a pornography and sex addict. Corinne begins to fall victim to the confusion, suspicion, and pain that co-addicts experience. From checking on her husband and his computer activities, to going to strip clubs to try and find him; from bringing strange young men home, to almost sleeping with her dentist. She has allowed his addiction to become her own, and what's worse? She can't seem to save anybody from themselves. As Corinne plunges down the insane path of co-addiction, she must also deal with a culture that has alienated her since she was sixteen. As she confronts and uncovers one of the most insidious and damaging of addictions, Corinne must survive the insanity of her world, or lose herself entirely. With support from friends and her baby-seal killing mother (not really, but she is very peevish), she gains the kind of strength that ultimately leads her to saving the only person she can truly save: herself.

Gripping. Stayed up til 2... Oct 13, 2006
Always Listen to the Ravings of a Mad Woman is both flawed and compelling; belly-laughing funny and gut-wrenching emotional. I couldn't put it down. You have to read it.
Coffee or Postum? Aug 3, 2006
Whether you drink coffee or Postum, this book is a must read! Julieann dives deep into the emotional struggles of religion, marriage and self esteem. The characters are so real and their individual struggles are not only heart breaking, they are very much a reality in the land of Zion. Always Listen to the Ravings of a Mad Woman is a very honest book that was written with much love and compassion about subjects that are often too difficult to face. What a relief that finally, someone has given us the "ok" to be who we are and find happiness within ourselves. A wonderful book!
An addictive read... Jun 3, 2006
Henneman's hilarious and bodacious fictional account of love, sex and betrayal in Mormon-land demonstrates how an outwardly happy marriage succumbs to dark temptation when sexual desire and emotional need collide. Straight-forward and brilliantly written, this tantalizing peep-show into human frailty and porn addiction is an absorbing tale of redemption that can only arise from the ashes of awareness and self-recovery. A page-turning, tell-all book, and one I highly recommend."
