Beyond Betrayal Paperback

(5 customer reviews)



Married to his best friend for over twenty-five years, Dave has shown Noni more joy love laughter passion pleasure and good times than she’s ever known.

He’s also given her more frustration anger grief sorrow despair and pain than she ever thought possible.  ‘Beyond Betrayal’ is their story – warts and all.
They’ve courageously shared how living inauthentically impacted their emotional relational spiritual and physical well-being, plus the unforeseen turnaround resurrecting their dead marriage.  “It is ‘us,’ at our most vulnerable.”

Raw, authentic and with no excuses offered: Dave has bravely allowed access into his mind – the mind of an adulterer.

    Facing the truth is often emotionally painful but it is one of the most powerful and freeing things we can do. I think the title of this book says it all, the effect of things unsaid, deceit and self protection can have in relationships. I truly understand Noni’s commitment as a mother and Christian women to preserve her family unit as the alternative can be devastating and often seen as an easy way out. We should never be afraid of truth it brings light into your life and dispels darkness. A great read that I hope and pray will have a happy ending.

    I’m a 30 year old guy and not married. It was somewhat of a scary book to be picking up being on the side of marriage that I am. It was a very eye-opening read, and I think given the right timing, its good to have your eyes opened. That was my experience.
    The greatest privilege I have is that I know Noni and Dave personally, and have shared many conversations with them over dinner and cards. The greatest gift they have to give is lived experience – a lot of it. The second greatest is wisdom from learning and studying. Both of those treasured gifts are available in their book, and in personally connecting with them. No hesitation in recommending this book, or personally reaching out to Dave and Noni.

    We have been in isolation…It has given me a wonderful opportunity to read your book (actually didn’t put it down for 2 days).
    Words can’t describe my thoughts and feelings. Such a beautiful love story and so beautifully written. Noni, your journey had me in tears and I am so sorry that you have had this painful and prolonged journey. Nobody should have to experience this trauma. Your determination, persistence, generosity and ability to constantly forgive is beyond comprehension. I know that you had God in your corner, and I am so thankful that you did.
    You have the satisfaction that your journey will help other couples and that again is selfless, as you have shared your darkest hurts and fears and had to be completely vulnerable and honest which again takes so much courage.
    I am so sorry for your pain and I pray that you will have joy and peace for the rest of your life. God bless you beautiful woman. Lisa xxx
    PS don’t stop writing! You have a gift 💝

    Wow, what a frank and heart-felt account of a challenging journey of love, trauma, and reconciliation. Leaving would have been a lot easier but Noni has amplified true forgiveness and strength. This is a must read book and would benefit those who are facing similar challenges and also would benefit therapists who need to have an insight into such issues.

    Thank you Noni and Dave so much for writing your story – as I read your book I felt so validated and supported, having so much in common with you guys. Thank you both for your vulnerability and your truth and your insights, especially into how sexual secrets impact the whole family. It’s so important in this healing journey to resist isolating and hiding – and this book has made me feel connected and accepted, part of a fractured but real and beautiful repair community.
