What does she do all day? That was the question Michael Miller and his corporate fraternity brothers often asked themselves about their stay-at-home wives. Their ignorance about what seemed like a simpler life at home shielded them from seeing or hearing the realities of it. Embarking on a quest to find the girl he married lost in that life Miller finds out the hard way just how very wrong they had been. In What happened to the girl I married?, Miller steps out of his corporate executive job and into his wife s uncomfortable shoes at home. With no staff or administrative assistants to support him, Miller s ah hah moments begin on day one and become more profound with each step down the path. Through his journey, Miller offers a new found appreciation for the tireless efforts of stay-athome mothers and clues as to why women might lose themselves in the job. For the men they married, Miller lets them connect with his evolution through humor, man-isms and motivations for change that are hard to resist. What happened to the girl I married? is an honest and enlightening love story that s funny and thought-provoking throughout. The story s messages help heal old wounds and offer both partners a language to get back on a loving path together and stay on it. MICHAEL MILLER has spent the bulk of his waking hours over the last two decades working his way up in the fast paced high-tech industry. He has held executive sales and marketing positions in several public and private companies. All that experience, however, did not prepare him for what he faced on his journey into his wife s life at home. Michael and his wife Linda currently live in Carmel, California where their love story first began. They live there with their two dynamic boys and are blessed to be surrounded by life-long friends."
