Review, Blog Tour & Giveaway: Love and Other Natural Disasters by Holly Shumas

It's Thanksgiving. Eve is eight months pregnant with her second child. Her friends and family are over to celebrate the holiday, and she hears her husband, Jon, talking on the phone in hushed tones. She discovers that he has been in a "relationship" with another woman for over a year. The relationship isn't physical, but emotional. Eve feels betrayed, and asks Jon to leave. She begins questioning her entire life, the decision she made in getting married and having children so soon. Understandably, thoughts of Jon's "affair" plague her constantly. Is an emotional affair worse than a sexual one?

Shumas' writing is emotional and honest. The reader feels the betrayal and anger that Eve experiences. The situation that Jon and Eve are experiencing is a very real one. LOVE AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS makes each reader, no matter their circumstances, reevaluate their lives, their relationships, and the decisions they make. An amazing piece of writing.

Shumas is a licensed marriage and family therapist. A special contest is available. The winner will recieve a copy of LOVE AND OTHER NATURAL DISASTERS, and will have a relationship question answered.
