Triumph of the Heart: Forgiveness in an Unforgiving World, the debut book of award-winning writer and 90octane storyteller Megan Feldman Bettencourt, has launched!

Megan wanted to know about the science behind forgiveness, how it plays out in various scenarios and why people seem to be choosing peace over harboring negativity. In her quest for answers she visited people across the country and around the world – and ended up on a surprising personal adventure too.

Watch Megan’s TEDx Boulder talk to learn more about the stories she tells.

Triumph of the Heart, published by Avery at Penguin, is available at all major retailers and online. Buy it today.



I believe that it is vital for us all — both as individuals and as a society — to think deeply about the question of forgiveness and its power to transform. I delight in the amount of research that Megan Feldman Bettencourt has done here, and I welcome her book as an important contribution to our ongoing cultural conversation about this important topic. I hope it will lead many to reconsider their anger, their bitterness, and their resentments.
