A must-read for anyone who has ever been BETRAYED

Amanda Cleveland Browne has the life she always dreamed of. A beautiful, artsy American expatriate, she lives on a tropical
island and swims every day in the nurturing Caribbean Sea. Then her husband’s betrayal shatters this idyll. Only through
honesty and introspection can Amanda regain her foothold and embrace unknown terrain.  Helped along the way by eccentric,
wise and loving inhabitants of her adopted islands, Amanda turns her divorce into a stepping stone to a new wondrous life. Her
story is a beacon of hope to anyone who has ever been betrayed.
