Book
One the most talked about and controversial books of the year that continues to make headlines.

After twelve years of marriage and an amicable divorce from Congressman Joe Kennedy, Jr., Sheila Rauch Kennedy was shocked to learn that her former husband was asking for an annulment of their marriage so that his new marriage would be acceptable in the eyes of the Church. This is the story of her refusal to acknowledge that her marriage was never sacramentally valid. Stunned by the hypocrisy of the process and the betrayal of trust it involved, Sheila Kennedy, an Episcopalian, is determined to def the legitimacy of her former marriage, especially because of the two sons the marriage produced. Interweaving her own experience with those of other women whose trust in the Church has been shattered by annulment, Kennedy tells a story that will surprise, anger, and move readers of every faith.
