Publisher's Summary

Once an affair comes to light, many unfaithful persons "wake up" and want to save their marriages. Yet they usually make terrible mistakes in their bungled attempts to win back their partners' trust. Linda J. MacDonald, an infidelity specialist for 23 years, has identified behaviors and attitudes that determine unfaithful persons' success or failure to mend their marriages after the wrecking ball of an affair. How to Help Your Spouse Heal from Your Affair offers practical advice for those who've strayed and want a second chance.

It would take weeks of therapy to learn what Successful Rebuilders know:

  • How to avoid the potholes that doom marriages after affairs
  • Critical guidelines for the first hours after discovery
  • Fifteen essential steps for repair after betrayal
  • Skills to cope with your partner's obsessions and "triggers"
  • Ways to undo the damage from your lies
  • The keys to avoid prolonging your spouse's agony (and yours)
  • The difference between helpful and harmful apologies
  • How to rebuild your broken life, relationships, and integrity

    "THE Text Book on how to rebuild"

    Wether you are the offended or the offender OR if you are tempted to be unfaithful this book must be read or listened to. I woke up this morning and listened, took notes and it changed my mind/perspective on how I saw the events that shaped my life.

    "good content for embarrassing subject matter"

    If you're reading this book it isn't because life is showing you it's grandest possibilities full of hope and goodness. This is a MUST READ for anyone going through the lowest lows in life by experiencing an affair. I was the cheated on spouse and it helped to know from a professional what the healing process should look like. it will be hard to hear if your the cheater, but if you want to save your marriage, or relationship it's a critical read to show you the path to recovery.

    "wonderful book. wish we had found is earlier"

    this book was easy to listen too. it had great information for anyone dealing with an affair. I truly belive it helps my wife understand the impact this had on me and also voice the feelings I could not. I belive it's a wonderful guide line to anyone wanting to make their relationship work after an affair.

    Story
    "Terrible!"

    Let me begin by stating that Tamara Marston sounds eerily similar to a computer.
    That only begins the terror that continues with a personal rant by the author whom quickly lets on that she has been 'cheated on' and clearly has not gotten over it.

    This book is false marketing in its truest form.

    "great book, very helpful!"

    I found out about my husband's infidelity around 6 months ago from the first woman and 5 months ago from the second. Since that time he has done little to prove he has changed and is remorseful but has been very adamant that he's done everything he could. This book normalized my feelings and the happenings currently going on in our marriage. I'm hoping that he will listen and take some pointers too. Thank you for this book

    "Helpful for sure"

    This is a very helpful guide to helping your other half heal. It's painful to listen to if you are at fault and the audio isn't my favorite, but so many audio books are dry and the narrator is just that. I think all offenders should read this though as it gives insight into something you can only know about if you've experienced it or taken the time to learn about it. Thanks!

    Story
    "This is my life."

    This audiobook described every ounce of emotion I was feeling after being cheated on. It felt like the author's words were mine. Give this to the person that betrayed you. The earlier the better...before he/she digs an even deeper hole that he/she can't get out of.

    Story
    "Good for understanding the feelings of both sides"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, it was worth listening to this book because it has a fair account of the feelings of each side. Particularly of the betrayed partner.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The emphasis on the pain of the betrayed person is the most important aspect for the betrayer to understand.


    Any additional comments?

    Although the title lacks scientific background for its assertions, most of it seems reasonable and interesting. There are some religious comments and views that should not be there but in general, this book can be read by religious and non religious people.
