Overview

Stephanie Alison Walker's LOVE IN THE TIME OF FORECLOSURE is a personal, frontline account of the entire foreclosure process, including the costs no one talks about - the gut-wrenched anxieties and stress-tested marriage, along with the endless support from family and friends.

Stehpanie narrates her and husband's battle from their first foreclosure notice to the day they move out, complete with Kafka-esque lenders, last-ditch phone calls to the governor, realtors from hell and awkward looks across the office.

She's sharing her story so others know what to expect - from lenders, from brokers, from the family across the street. Steph hopes to remove the stigma of foreclosure, and her positive attitude, even as she loses everything, is a lesson for everyone in times like these.
