A brilliant, moving memoir that follows the author’s journey towards reconciling with her past and bringing purpose to her marriage, Our Better Selves: From Secrets and Lies to Healing and Forgiveness by Kasey Rogers offers a fresh perspective on making choices that heal and that will help anyone facing challenges in marriage to reach deeper levels of intimacy. Kasey finally makes up her mind to divorce her husband, suspicious that he might be having an affair. Her husband of twenty-five years has been nothing but secretive, lying, and belittling her. When she thinks she has had enough, she makes up her mind to leave him. Then a medical situation hits home and everything changes. Instead of leaving her marriage, she embraces the path to forgiveness and, in this story, it brings a whole new experience of love.
A well-crafted memoir that reads like fiction, Our Better Selves is a story that will speak to the hearts of readers and many of them will hear themselves in the voice of the author. Kasey Rogers writes in beautiful prose and explores her emotional pain with unwonted clarity. The story brims with insights and the unflinching honesty with which the author tells her story reinforces the strength of its message. She writes from a seemingly vulnerable place of her heart but it is that vulnerability that lends credibility to the story, making it relatable. She emerges with power as she chooses forgiveness over hurt and acceptance over bitterness. This story shows readers that they can become authors of the love story they want to live in marriage and that they have the power to rekindle love when it is gone. It is inspiring, a must-read for anyone in a marriage, especially those facing challenges.
