How The Power Of Forgiveness Can Heal A Life Shattered By Infidelity
I’d once pondered the words “the serpent beguiled Eve” but not deeply enough to allow its meaning to settle into my heart . . .
Atlanta, GA, March 16, 2015 — In her latest book, The Serpent Beguiled Eve: Healing the Wounds of Abandonment, Betrayal and Shame, Acacia Slaton opens up some of her most painful memories in order to help others who are hurting too.
“I walked outside, pacing up and down the street as I thought about how his decision to yield to this temptation or believe God would change our lives. He had said, ‘I have a path before me. I can either go right or left. If I go right, I can receive the wholeness and normality I’ve always desired.’ As much as I wanted him to take the right path, I knew I couldn’t lead him on that path. I could only reason with him, hope and pray that he’d make the right decision.”
This story, Acacia’s story, gives readers a deeper understanding of the pain caused by infidelity (for the spouses and their children). It also shows there is hope beyond the grief for those who put their faith in the promises of God. The Serpent Beguiled Eve is recommended reading for anyone who feels alone as they live through and recover from the pain of infidelity.
This book will help anyone in a relationship. It’s not just about infidelity. It’s about moving on, with or without your partner. It’s about dealing with the aftermath. It’s about learning to love yourself and truly understanding how the power of forgiveness can heal your life.
“If I had known then, what I know now, I would have truly sought the Lord and prayed for an escape from temptation.”

The Serpent Beguiled Eve: Healing the Wounds of Abandonment, Betrayal and Shame
By Acacia Slaton
Edwin L. Carpenter, The Dove Foundation, www.dove.org: “I trust this is a book that will help others. We are presenting our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for ages 12 plus, and five Doves, our best rating, to this book.”
Kimberly Schimmel, Church Librarian: “This story gives readers a taste of the pain caused by infidelity (for the spouses and their children). It also shows there is hope beyond the grief for those who put their faith in the promises of God. The Serpent Beguiled Eve is recommended reading for anyone who feels alone as they live through and recover from the pain of infidelity.”
Raghav from Bangalore: “None of the people here can be blamed – not even her ex-husband David. Everybody in this book is a victim of circumstances beyond their control. Who am I or, who is anybody else to judge? Who among us is perfect? I can only say that I was fully caught up in Acacia’s story, I empathize with her, and wish her and her kids – Madison and Mia – all the happiness and success in the world.”
Excerpts from the many 5-star reviews on Amazon.com:
“[Author] transparently shares her journey of dealing with the heartbreak of a broken marriage due to her husband’s homosexual unfaithfulness…What I appreciate about Ms. Slaton’s book is her sharing Scripture and godly counsel that led her to evaluate herself in the midst of this dark time in her life. She does not paint herself out to be a
martyr nor an angel. She shares honestly of things which would have been easier left unshared…”
“[Book] covers topics from adultery, military separations and the sacred relationship between husband and wife. The author is resolute and determined to never let her faith waiver, a woman strong in religious convictions. If you want to read a story of resilience, love and religious devotion then I recommend [this book].”
“Acacia did a great job of describing what she went through. I applaud her for writing it in order to help others that might have gone through any kind of betrayal. I’m sorry she and her family had to go through it, but like she said, God can take awful situations and turn them around for good. Like the impact of this book!”
“I commend Acacia Slaton for her candid accounts of betrayal of a husband deployed and returning home living through her personal shame and quest to change him and to bring healing to the family unit. I felt this book would bring understanding, power of forgiveness and healing to women especially in the African American community where we do not readily seek help or openly talk about our problems.”
