A House Interrupted
A can't-put-it-down read about a wife's devastating discovery that her physician husband is a sex addict
Maurita Corcoran's world collapsed when she learned that her husband of fourteen years, a successful physician, was a sex addict. She had never even heard of a "sex addict," but she was suddenly submerged in a world of painful choices about how to rebuild a life for herself and her four children. This is an absorbing memoir about forgiveness, resilience, and hope.
With the growing public awareness of how pervasive sex addiction has become in our culture, this memoir answers the questions that spouses must face in building lives of self-respect and confidence. Filled with actual raw journal entries, this first-hand account will help any spouse or partner who needs to know more about this devastating addictive disease.
This engaging memoir proves that women can emerge from the betrayal, anger, and heartache to become authentically peaceful and resilient sources of support to other women.
Maurita Corcoran and her husband have been in recovery for more than a dozen years. They have raised four children, and they remain happily married.
