For My Side of the Bed
“My Side of the Bed is a survivor’s tale – full of anguish, anger, passion and finally healing. From moving on from a loveless marriage to standing up to the Episcopal church, Harris shows her strong spirit in a way that’s inspiring and timely.”Elizabeth Fishel
“After 35 years of marriage, Margherita Harris learned about the secret her husband had been keeping for all those years. Part of her recovery from the betrayal, anguish, uncertainty, grief and loss was to create this beautifully written and heart-wrenching memoir. This book describes in detail how she was impacted and how she eventually was able to build a new life. It also describes her years-long struggle to get recognition from the Episcopal Church of her suffering and her need to get her marriage annulled.”Jennifer Schneider M.D., Ph.D.
“My Side of the Bed is a transformational story of the author’s battle with emotional abandonment in childhood, concealed sexual betrayal throughout her marriage, and serious errors of omission within the power structure of her mainstream Christian denomination.”Pamela H. Netzow
