In “Costly Illusions” (published by iUniverse), author Vesna Grudzinski Sutija’s new novel, readers join Alexandra as she fights to change her unhappy life.

Alexandra finds herself in an unhappy marriage to Carlos in an unfamiliar land – New York City. As she begins to move out of her comfort zone, hoping to find love and approval, she finds herself in a whirlwind of confusion, rejection and upheaval. She must balance motherhood and her professional responsibilities or risk losing all that she has. With each new chapter, readers witness Alexandra fight her way through the slush that keeps trying to bring her down. Slowly, she begins to change her identity as a woman, mother and professional.

An excerpt from “Costly Illusion”:

“Should I be proud of just surviving a loss? Isn’t there more to life? I realize that it is not regret for a future void, but rage for not been given the opportunity to try, the opportunity to create freely without having to fight stubbornly for a balance. That’s I how felt. It was a constant effort to retain an identity.”

“It is my hope that readers see that tough days and tough problems of contemporary existence are survivable and one can win the game despite the temporary setbacks,” she says.
