Broken trust? This brand new book is here to help

Wise Readers,

Are you struggling with trusting a partner again? Or with whether to stay or go? If your partner has violated a cherished expectation—that’s broken trust. A new, research-based book is the first to take you step-by-step through whether to recover, and how, whether the issue is an affair or something else. I loved the book so much, I endorsed it:

“Love is not enough: we need trust, too. Yet all too often, partners violate that trust. Why does this happen? Can your relationship’s foundation be repaired, or is it wiser to leave? And if you stay, how can you restore your damaged trust? Regardless of the type of betrayal, authors Tim Cole and Emily Duddleston use research, examples, and activities to help couples become closer, stronger, and wiser than before. Broken Trust is indispensable—the go-to resource I’m recommending for my own clients who are working through betrayals and their inevitable but conquerable aftermath.”

When I reviewed the book prior to publication, I kept thinking how I couldn’t wait to tell everyone to get it. The wait is over. Pass it on!
