Often if we experience an affair this becomes a traumatic experience for us. We feel stuck, lost, in shock, embarrassed, defensive, angry, etc. Perel describes this process utilizing both her own clinical examples of couples she treated over the years, as well as the experience of her trusted colleagues. Perel walks us through the healing process from a different perspective, one that is neither prescriptive nor judgemental. This is a must-read not only for clinicians and those personally impacted by an affair but also for anyone in a relationship.
