Welcome to the "When the Wife Cheats" Virtual Book Tour on Life with Karen. Thank you, author Frank Zaccari, for sharing your book with me and my readers. This was a book that is very open and "raw." Infidelity is always difficult to handle, but it is worse when the wife cheats?
This book, while well written, was hard for me to read. I could not imagine walking away from my family. The woman seems to have been uninterested in the marriage from the beginning. Why not just stand up, be honest with the person you are with, and walk away BEFORE building a life together and having children? I don't feel sorry for the wife in this story, nor do I understand her side of the issue.
"When the Wife Cheats" is a fictionalized account of one marriage, based on Frank Zaccari's own story and those of others he has discovered who have been in the same situation. The characters are very real due to this, and the book tells it like it is. There is no glamorizing infidelity. This book will take a reader who is already frustrated with unfaithful people and make her want to shout about these people in the streets. Perhaps this is the plan of the author, as forcing this issue out into the open may make people more aware of how truly hurtful their actions are.
I was impressed with Frank Zaccari from the moment I opened my package for the book review. He left me a personalized letter regarding the book. I think he is honestly trying to make a difference in the world of marriage and family. If you would like to learn more about this author, please visit his website or Facebook page.
There are so many books I want to read in this lifetime that I never go back and reread a book. My lack of storage space in my house becomes your gain. I would like to pass my copy of "When the Wife Cheats" along to another reader rather than having it sit around and collect dust.
How to enter: Please leave a comment below telling me if you think infidelity should be handled more strictly than it is now. Should that be taken into account during a divorce and custody trial? Don't forget to leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you are the winner.
This giveaway will run until 8 PM Arizona time on Tuesday, July 19, 2011. Good luck!
