Overview

Evelyn’s alcoholic husband beats her, humiliates her, and treats her like dirt. She put up with his mental and physical abuse for years for the sake of the kids, but after she knocks him unconscious with a whiskey bottle to protect her teenage son, she takes the kids and flees to a women’s shelter. Will she finally free herself from her abuser, or does God have something else in mind?

Nathan struggles with his own demons, too. But when he offers to represent Evelyn in her divorce for free, a strange feeling overcomes him. He knows he can’t see her romantically. It’s unethical for lawyers to date clients, and she’s still a married woman. Yet, something is stirring in his heart. Is it love or something more, something he’s willing to die for?

Divorce is easy… But sometimes God’s plan doesn’t give us an easy way out.

    Kevin Mark Smith writes from the heart revealing his passion to

    Kevin Mark Smith writes from the heart revealing his passion to keep intact the American Family. Divorce is far too easy and Mr. Smith, a Kansas attorney, layers a captivating multi-tiered story in Love’s Strong Shelter dealing with the subject.

    Max and Evelyn’s marriage was on the rocks two weeks after their wedding date. Married young, and without family support, the couple were on a fast tracked road to destruction with Max’s drinking and Evelyn’s desire to keep peace and keep her children safe. Until the final event when Max Jr., now a teenager, intervenes. 

    Evelyn and the children go to a family shelter and Max plunges himself deeper into drinking and womanizing, but through an interesting turn of events their lives begin to change. There are no coincidences with God and with His strong shelter, Max and Evelyn become the people they were intended to be.

    I applaud Mr. Smith for taking a stand for what he believes; it isn’t always easy in the no fault society we have built for ourselves. The book was expertly written and well laid out into thought provoking read.
