My spouse recently was caught having an affair- it was brief- 2 occasions and is very remorseful. This book has more to say about men w/ sexual addictions but it still helped- primarily because it is from the perspective of a born-again believer in Christ- I can't imagine seeing hope in my situation without God. I would recommend it.
Best of the Best Nov 23, 2009
This book is extremely insightful. Helpful in knowing what you can do in the midst of betrayal - how to stand for what's true & right, and how to continue on in those qualities. You do not have to be tied down by the anger & resentment. Don't keep dancing the same old dance. You will find hope & healing. Debbie Laaser helps to guide women through stories, insights & sound biblical wisdom. Her goal is for women to realize who they can ultimately control & that our choice for our own character is in our power.
A wonderful book from a betrayed wife's perspective Sep 3, 2009
I have known the author's husband for 15 years. During that time I only had a modest underestanding of how a wife feels when she discovers her husbands unfaithful behavior. The author allowed me to see how much hurt and pain is caused by a husband who shaters their vows. However, anyone who reads this book will be taken on a journey that transends an understanding of grace and forgiveness.
This powerful book is well written and consumes little time. I would strongly suggest this book to any wife (or husband) who is trying to heal from the wounds of betrayal. WARNING: This might save a marriage!
Comforting Resource for those Sexually Betrayed May 20, 2009
When your life is torn apart by sexual betrayal you are adrift and lost. Shattered Vows lets you know that you are not alone, and the emotions you are experiencing are the same as, unfortunately, many other women. Shattered Vows gives you an anchor to hang onto while you are trying to desperately get your footing, and truly gain your life back. You'll have many feelings to get through, lots of tears to cry, tons of angry words to get out, and life changing decisions to make. I truly pray, that like me, you will come through a stronger and believe it or not, better person for your brokenness. You might just find that "true love" is much stronger than you ever imagined, and so are you. God Bless you All.

I think that any one that care about other with the heart of Jesus. Should read this book. It really is a eye-opener on how to handle situations that may come your way. As Christian I believe we should be willing to help walk with others. And if you have never been hurt in anyway then I think that this would be a good book so that you can learn how to help people that have been hurt by the ones they love the most. Anyway I have been truly bless by God as I have learned how to handle the hurts in my own life in new ways. Thanks for listening.
