Overview

Expanded and updated—acclaimed by readers, reviewers, and counselors as the best book to help people struggling to recover from a partner's affair.

For more than 14 years, Peggy Vaughan's book has been heralded as one of the most valuable survival and recovery guides for men or women experiencing a partner's unfaithfulness. Drawing on actual case studies, research, and her own experience, she helps us to understand the stages of suspicion, confrontation, and the healing process necessary to recovery, including rebuilding self-esteem, the marriage/divorce dilemma, and seeking professional help. Also, she shares her proven six-step program for establishing communication between partners that can actually prevent affairs.

Peggy Vaughan revises and expands her book to include more reactions and strategies shared by her readers, updated references (such as to the Monica Lewinsky affair), and an important section on the Internet and its effect on relationships.
