"Questing France" shows how to create and maintain relationships with integrity. Posing questions about marriage, betrayal, trust, friendship and family relationships, it provides answers on building strong relationships, parenting children through difficult times and creating respectful friendships. Marilyn applies her expertise as a marriage and family therapist to her roles as a wife, mother, sibling, friend and business woman. Behind her roles, she struggles to find strength and support to be her authentic Self. Recognize the signs of an affair, find out why people return to or stay in a marriage after infidelity, explore ways to develop intimacy and rebuild trust, help children deal with parental conflict. The story builds to a romantic finale where Marilyn and her husband celebrate twenty-five years of marriage with a luxurious trip through France. Visit the Normandy coast, the Loire Valley, the Pyrenees mountains, Provence, the French Riviera, the French Alps and Paris.

At the end of the book, I like probably most readers of this book was eager to learn more about the author's journey. Had she really found lasting peace and acceptance? Would she be able to integrate her new self knowledge into her busy life as a marriage councillor, wife, and mother? Was her husband really having an affair while she was on her trip? If so, would she kick him to the curb or continue her previous unhealthy pattern of pleasing others?
I looked to the author's new book Questing France: Deepening the Search for My Holy Grail for answers to these questions and others. I found some answers. I also found even more questions.
Two things I did learn from this book are that 1) The journey of the Self is a never-ending process and 2) You never really know how you'll actually react in any given situation until you experience it yourself. What might appear to others as unhealthy, weak, or misguided might be true self-empowerment. Stay the course, Marilyn!

I enjoyed the 'therapist-speak' throughout the book as it adds a neutral voice to the conflict. I feel I learned a lot. It was great to see the different personalities come through the stories.
Thanks to Marilyn for sharing her life and her story.
I'll be definitly looking for more Marilyn B. Belleghem!!!
