Overview

A Christian woman has an affair.

It's a betrayal beyond mention.

She stands to lose everything.

Mona Leigh Anderson, a good mother and even better wife, is unaware that her tidy and sheltered world is going to explode into a thousand pieces. And by her own hand, she launches the grenade of destruction.

Brian Anderson is a principled man, a leader in the church. Never in all his days did he believe his marriage could come to such a heart-rending testing of his faith, although this is exactly what he's about to endure.

Damaged by deception and infidelity, Mona and Brian seek to repair the mistrust between them because that is the right thing to do. But can they truly let go of the past and of the most egregious of marital sins, and survive in this world of seduction?

I got the chance to read this book for free, in exchange for my honest opinion, by the author Sarah Jae Foster

My Review: Broken Identity is a powerful book. A Christian woman has an affair, keep this secret from her husband in eating away at her. Can Brian forgive Mona? Will he chose to stand by her even through deception?

Once I reached a certain point, I quite literally could not put this book down. Had to read it to the end, even if it did take me until just after 2 AM. *G* Excellent read! Truly shows the redemptive power of God. One of the elements I really like about this book is the fact Mona repents but things don't instantly get better. Redeeming a life that's been entrenched in sin takes time to forgive oneself for, and it takes time to truly feel redeemed and no longer think on those things. But it is po
In This Together Blog - Susan Delano
Think your marriage is affair proof? Think again! Mona Leigh Anderson is proof that it takes more than conviction to remain faithful in marriage. Debut author Sarah Jae Foster has masterfully crafted a tender story that will leave readers surprised and hopeful.
Goodreads - Melanie Davis
This is a good story, but I feel Mona got off way too easy.

This is a great story and very well written. The idea of a Christian woman having an affrair may be far fetched for some, but I think this just helps remind people (Christian or not) we are all fallable as human beings and that the power of forgivness is truly one of lifes greatest gifts. Definite recommended read. Loved that the writer did views from both Mona and Brian.

I just finished reading Broken Identity by Sarah Jae Foster. This is the first work by this author I have read and wow - I didn’t want to stop once I started. The subject matter was deep but handled in such a realistic way. I’ve never struggled with the topic myself, but have many friends I have walked this path with and she nailed it! I originally bought the book because the back cover intrigued me. I wanted to see how she would write about this topic and if it would be realistic and keep my interest. She handled it so gracefully and honestly while not shying from the truth of what happens when we allow ourselves to start down the slippery slope of compromise. I loved, also, how she brought the couple back around - it wasn’t a magical fairy tale where everyone lives happily ever after without a lot of hard work. Just as the slope begins slowly at first and then builds steam, the recovery period is the same. It begins slowly, with a glimmer of hope and then builds momentum as both individuals in the marriage work together. I absolutely loved the response from Brian. And, I especially loved what he said regarding how Satan may have won a battle but Brian wasn’t going to allow Satan to be victorious and take their marriage. Great book - can’t wait to read more from this author. She is one of my new favorites.

Sarah Jae Foster is a new author for me and I am so glad I found her. I really like the fact that even though Mona repents things don't instantly get better. Which is so much more real to life.
