Striking out into the world

A recent study revealed that millions of married people are stuck in an unhappy marriage, but they will not divorce because of their fear of financial or emotional hardship, citing the need to “stay together for the kids” as the fourth most common reason for putting off divorce.
In her new book “Love is Like a Butterfly,” author Beverly Peterson tells the story of Mary, a woman who finds herself trapped in a marriage, but dedicated to her family. The novel follows Mary on her journey as she leaves her husband and strikes out into the world.
“The book underlines the importance of family,” Peterson said. “But never at the expense of oneself.”
