I have a family member going through a similar situation, so I definitely felt the emotions throughout your piece. It felt a little vindictive, and the ending imagery threw me just a little. Overall, powerful work on a subject people don't want to talk about. Forgiveness is still key, though, and it might have been nice to see a little of that in your MC, or perhaps a hope for that.

I went to church in a denomination that brushed its minister's infidelity with the church secretary under the rug for years... all the while insinuating that his indiscretion must some how be his wife's fault...she was not submissive enough, she did not do enough to support his ministry...etc., etc., etc.... Sometimes a little righteous indignation is called for, and sometimes has to procede the forgiveness... I rather liked the ending. thanks by the way for your kind comment on my entry.
