To learn after 30 years of marriage that your husband is gay must have been a devastating revelation for the author. She writes of it in order to help other women that may face the same situation. She shares with us her loneliness and sadness, shock, and disorientation she experienced. She struggled through, eventually sorted out her own life, talked with others in the same situation and managed to return to being a wholesome, happy woman. This is a good book to read to understand the lives of others, especially when they are so different than our own. I highly recommend it!
