Share Article

How well do we really know the people in our lives? Is it true that what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger?

Survivable Losses takes you into the lives of people who must tackle deception, secrecy, and mixed signals in their relationships with husbands, wives, siblings, acquaintances, and colleagues. A middle-aged woman discovers the truth about why her husband left her; a female professor takes on her ruthless male competitor; an elderly man finds that it may be too late to tell his wife of forty years that he loves her; a young woman gets an offer she knows she can’t accept, or can she? A woman confronted with her husband’s cheating turns the tables on him; a sister finds out that her brother’s chaotic life holds secrets that she never would have imagined; a middle-aged woman reflects on getting older in her dysfunctional family; and a married man finds out that a kiss doesn’t always mean what it implies.

Their resilience and ability to deal with deception, infidelity, divorce, mixed signals and ruthlessness help them to move forward with their lives. But the costs of doing so are often not what they had envisioned.

Survivable Losses is available for purchase on Amazon--paperback or Kindle edition:
