Renaissance of the Heart Giveaway

After her husband of fifteen years comes out of the closet, a blindsided, forty-year-old Amanda Lewis is forced to salvage what remains of her shattered heart and navigate a new life for herself and her teenage daughter. But will a sizzling secret romance with a famous young NFL quarterback lead her to winning the life she deserves or set her up for her biggest loss yet?

As she embarks on the journey of rebuilding her home, Amanda discovers that finding forgiveness and repairing her damaged self-worth are her biggest challenges of all.

After 15 years of marriage, Amanda’s husband Derrick asks for a divorce and moves out. Amanda figures the only explanation is another woman. When he calls a week later to meet, she is told, to her horror, that it is not another woman, but another man. Derrick is finally being true to himself. Since they have a daughter to think about, Amanda tries to make it an amiable separation while waiting on the divorce to finalize. But Derrick just won’t let up on the verbal abuse that Amanda has withstood for so long. Then as fate would have it, into her life walks famous NFL quarterback Bradley Erickson, who is very much interested in her. Will Amanda be able to get past the twelve-year age difference and her low self-esteem to find true happiness?  Only time will tell.

Amanda was such an over-analyzer, but she couldn’t help but be, with all the years of put-downs from her husband. It’s very difficult to come away from that unscathed. Being older than her, I can very much understand the insecurities she felt with her body and public judgments. I have to say though, if I was Amanda I would have shut out the voices in my head, thrown caution to the wind, and enjoyed the relationship with Eric with no regrets. I mean, how much better can it get?
