Welcome to our featured author Sunday post, aptly named Sassy's #SundaySpotlight.
Here we focus on a different author every Sunday -- be it a classic writer you know and love, a New York Times / Sunday Times bestseller, or an Indie Author deserving to step up into the spotlight and have their voice heard.
So, lets meet this Sunday's SECOND Spotlight Author!
Twelve women share one thing in common – the quest for being happily married to the men they chose; however, each one finds herself in an unexpected marital predicament. Inspired by real events and told from each woman’s perspective, these short stories are firsthand accounts detailing the realities of marriage well after each woman said, “I do.”
Four women represent The Voiceless Wife. Although circumstances vary, these women give their power away to friends and family. The result is a loss of intuition and self. The Detached Wife symbolizes five different ways wives can be disconnected from their husbands and themselves. Sex, intimacy and self-discovery are central to understanding these women’s narratives. The Committed Wife includes three women who demonstrate the depths of devotion. These final stories show that wives sometimes need more than loyalty to be happy.
Also included is an afterword by Dating and Relationship Coach and Instructor, and founder of Relationship Architect Academy, Anita Charlot. She gives valuable insights as to how and why some women become “unhappy” wives and what we as women can do to maintain healthier relationships.
Katherin has been married for 20 years. By year seven, she had two perfect daughters, a dog, and a house; yet, unhappiness with herself and her marriage oftentimes seeped in. For the next decade, she met different women, who seemed to have similar marriage experiences. Some were college educated and some were not. Some were old enough to be her mother, while others were her age. She met women who married one husband and others who had walked down the aisle several times. No matter their backgrounds, these women had a few things in common. They were unhappy, they’d managed to keep it hidden from other friends and family members, or they were advised against their conscience by friends and family. As Katherin found her way to happiness, she felt compelled to give other unhappy wives a voice so they would know that they are not alone and they don’t have to live in sadness. Consequently, The Unhappy Wife was conceived as a collection of short stories. Although stories are fictionalized, each is inspired by true marital events. With this book, Katherin hopes to not only help wives feel less alone, but also to inspire them to make healthier and intuitive decisions.
