The trauma of being deceived and betrayed causes deep psychological wounds that are most difficult to overcome. This book describes the stages of such trauma, as experienced through the perspective of three couples in their late 30s, all of whom are also good friends. The stages depict incredulous shock, obsessive reconstruction of events, denials, self-doubt and self-blame, anger, sorrow, and, finally, acceptance of what has occurred and its consequences.
Can trust, once broken, be rebuilt? Is there a just retribution for a spouse who has cheated and lied numerous times, while appearing to be wonderful, loyal, and committed? These questions are considered and explored through the individual struggles of these six protagonists who seek resolution.

Well written and narrated.Held my attention.
Got caught up in the betrayal and anticipating some resolution.
The story was more sympathetic to the women .
The male characters are done very well . The females not as much .
I was angry at the husbands and wanted to see them suffer, but could understand the wives
dilemma of not wanting to ruin their and their children lives .
I listened to the book in one non stop sitting and it held my attention for the most part. I would have liked more detail and character development and more first person narrative .
