A married woman desperate for love, sex and affection turns to online dating when her husband is deployed in Bernadette Marson’s new romance novel, “Cyberdelity: Cyber-Infidelity, Uncomforted Trauma and Collaborative Marriage Survival” (published by Archway Publishing).

When they were first married, Kerrie and Jeff were blissfully in love, but after Jeff deploys, Kerrie finds herself starved for affection, attention and sex. To ease her lonely nights and self-serving gratification, Kerrie turns to online dating for a quick fix.

At first, Kerrie enjoys the attention she receives, but when her relationships end in disaster, she becomes vengeful and self-harming. Her unhealthy behavior borders on alcoholism, anger, promiscuity, depression, a traumatic childhood and a well-kept secret. When Kerrie attempts suicide, Jeff returns home, but he too is struggling with his own demons. With the scars of Kerrie’s childhood and Jeff’s invisible wound embedded in him, post-traumatic stress disorder defines them both. Can these two wounded souls find love and healing in each other?

“A couple can go through a lot together,” Marson tells her readers. “However, a marriage can survive when there is trust, forgiveness understanding, effective communication, appropriate social reconnection, a commitment to build a healthy relationship and individual and collaborative marriage intervention. Infidelity, domestic violence or suicide is never the answer.”
