"Betrayed is a must read as each of us can recognize a mother, sister, friend or colleague that has gone through similar circumstances. Martie's poignant snapshots of the turmoil her emotions went through are heart wrenching...yet written with such honesty that we're left wondering how we never understood - never realized - what a woman is fighting through when faced with betrayal. Read this for all the women who are unable to articulate, who never let their hurt show, whose world has been torn apart and who hold all of these feelings in. Each of the choreographed stanzas walks us through pain, anger, resignation, and acceptance. You cry with Martie, yet cheer for her as she emerges."

A Sampling Of Poems From 'Betrayed'
It began with shock and disbelief,
Then turned to sobs and wrenching grief.
My tears would flow at just a thought,
My quests for ease were all for naught.
Grief changed to rage that ruled my days,
Engulfing most nights in a bitter haze.
As time marched on, my anger lessened.
Restful nights, brought dawns re-freshened.
Pain would come, and tears would flow,
Fear was constant and healing slow.
