Struck from Above
Interview of Author Heidi Siefkas by Guideposts
By Dan Kessel, New York, New York
Though her life seemed to crumble when she found out her husband was being unfaithful and she suffered a life-threatening accident, the best was yet to come.
Heidi Siefkas of Plantation, Florida, thought she had it all—a devoted husband, success as a marketing executive in the travel industry, and the glamorous lifestyle she’d always desired, jet-setting around the world for conferences in Paris one week and Mexico City the next.
Then one crisp September afternoon, she discovered a letter on her husband’s computer that revealed a shocking secret: He’d been unfaithful. In her book, When All Balls Drop: The Upside of Losing Everything, Heidi admits she didn’t know how to go on—until a freak accident put everything into perspective. We asked Heidi about her journey from hurt to healing.
