"Gail. Hannah. Bridget. Lizzy. Flavia. Each of them has a shameful secret, and each is about to find out that she is not alone... Gail, a prominent Boston judge, keeps receiving letters from her husband's latest girlfriend, while her husband, a theology professor, claims he's nine-months sober from sex with grad students. Hannah, a homemaker, catches her husband having sex with a male prostitute in a public restroom. Bridget, a psychiatric nurse at a state hospital, is sure she has a loving, doting spouse, until she learns that he is addicted to chat rooms and match-making websites. Lizzy, a high school teacher, is married to a porn addict, who is withdrawn and uninterested in sex with her. Flavia was working at the Boston Public library when someone brought her an article that stated her husband had been arrested for groping a teenage girl on the subway. He must face court, and Flavia must decide if she wants to stay with him. Finally, Kathryn, the young psychologist running the group, has as much at stake as all of the others. As the women share never-before-uttered secrets and bond over painful truths, they work on coming to terms with their husbands' addictions and developing healthy boundaries for themselves. Meanwhile, their outside lives become more and more intertwined, until, finally, a series of events forces each woman to face her own denial, betrayal and uncertain future head-on."--

This book was an amazing read! I loved the dynamics within the group, each woman experiencing the sessions differently. It was raw and engaging which made it hard to put down! All of the women had their own struggles that were so real , allowing you to fall in love with each of them. This book was a fast read but most of all it grabbed at your heart! I was sad to know this was her one and only book.

When Kathryn, a graduate psychology student, starts a support group for wives of sex addicts, the results are much more than anyone bargained for. The five women range from a prominent judge to a homemaker. Each woman has ups and downs while learning to rely on each other. Betrayal, in more than one form, happens to all of them. The author draws you in quickly and leaves you wanting a sequel.

I received an advanced copy of this. I feel it was well written and had an interesting topic. If anything, I re-learned the importance of friendships.
