Overview

One woman's powerful journey from independence into a marriage paralyzed by the grip of domestic violence - and back again to a life of hope and wholeness --- "Like so many women, I wanted a home, children, a loving husband, and a pet. When life didn't work out the way I hoped by the time I was 30, I started to panic. I was actively looking for love when I met a man who would ultimately change my life and the lives of those closest to me... This story has a happy ending. Unfortunately, not all victims of domestic violence are so fortunate. There are steps you can take to free yourself or help free someone you know. Through my story, you'll find out how. You will walk away with a better understanding of how someone can lose everything to an abuser - and when she is ready, reclaim her life... What would ever make a woman stay in an abusive marriage or relationship? A lot of things, among them shame and fear. Shame of leaving, shame of failure, fear of your most personal marital details becoming public in a divorce proceeding - and fear of suffering socially or financially by a divorce. For some, there's a fear of being alone. If you're unable to understand this, be thankful. But also be careful. Prior to my marriage to the pastor, I would never have tolerated anyone treating me this way." (Reba D.)

"Reba" is a personal friend of mine and yet I can still say, without being partial, that this book is a fantastic read!! I was shocked at how brually honest that "Reba" was in this book and am so proud of her for being willing to share her story. Anyone who is currently in the same situation or knows somebody who is should pick this up- its a must read!! Not only will it make you realize that you are not alone, but it will help you see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel! And that light really will lead you to a life reclaimed. Congratulations to you "Reba" on your the book and your new life! XOXO- Donna

Reba could be any woman. What she went through was so similar to my story only in a different place. I never thought about documenting everything the way she did. But she's right in that it's not all bad. The good parts suck you in and keep you there until even your friends stop asking how you are. Like Reba, I never had kids. But her story in many ways could have been my story. I could not put this book down. I am buying it for my nieces. I want them to see what I didn't see when I was their ages so they don't make the mistakes I made. A friend of mine knows the author and told me to buy this book. I'm going to have to buy her coffee to say thanks. This book gave me a new perspective and changed my life.
