In the '90s after more than twenty years of marriage, Linda W. Rooks and her husband Marv suffered through a painful three-year separation. But, unlike many couples, their story had a happy ending. They reunited in 1998 with a stronger marriage than before.
Because they have experienced the pain of a severe marital trauma but also found the hope of restoration, they are eager to share that hope with others. Having the correct formula is not enough. A person in marital crisis needs emotional and spiritual strength to get to the other side. In Broken Heart on Hold, Surviving Separation, Linda shares from her heart and her experience to help those in marital trauma find relief. She is there to walk beside the reader to shed light in the dark tunnel of marital breakdown.
As a freelance writer with a degree in Creative Writing from San Francisco State University, Linda has had more than 70 pieces of her writing published in national and local publications, including Chicken Soup for the Soul. She is listed in Who's Who in America, Who's Who of American Women, and Who's Who in the World and was featured in Today's Christian Woman.
Linda and Marv have two married daughters and five young grandchildren. Today some of their most treasured moments involve spending time with their grandchildren--together.
