Bouncing Back After Dropping the Ball…18 Life Lessons on the Journey to Forgiveness is a mixture of a novel and a "how-to" book, specifically, a book on how to forgive. The story involves a married woman who learns that her husband of 16 years has a secret life—secret women, secret kids, secret condos, etc.—and her struggle not to kill him, literally. Her desire to end his life grows as his behavior worsens, as he exacts his own revenge against her for her decision to leave him. Instead, she eventually learns to redirect her rage, after acknowledging her extended anger had changed her in unflattering ways, and embraces the notion of forgiveness. Forgiveness, she discovers, is neither an intuitive nor easy process, but she becomes the beneficiary of wonderful rewards as a result of her hard work. The book is designed to help those who have been betrayed to get through the process without destroying themselves (spiritually, mentally, or emotionally) or others, and shares 18 life lessons to get them to the point of true forgiveness.
