    What People Are Saying About "Life After Betrayal"
    "Life after Betrayal: A Practical Guide" by Lynda Bevan delivers on its promise. It is a no-nonsense, honest but compassionate guide to surviving all forms of betrayal, from the romantic to the parental. It is hard to believe how much useful information the author has packed into this slender tome. The book is studded with illuminating case studies and provides an excellent exposition of issues such as post-traumatic emotional responses, pre-trauma expectations, setting boundaries, forgiveness and acceptance, and the do's and don'ts of moving forward. A gem."

    Ordering this book is not something anyone wishes they have to do, but Lynda Bevan knows how to lay it all out straight for those who have been betrayed. In what might be the worst period of your life, she provides clear, doable and reasonable steps to move forward -- a very difficult thing for victims. She speaks straight English, no pycho-babble. Read the book, highlight what resonates, put it away and pull it out if those familiar feelings are beginning to return. Thanks Lynda for addressing a horrible situation with care and compassions.
