    This Book Is An Eye Opener

    It is amazing the things that this book opens our eyes to. What some people will put off as somebody just being "them," I never realized that it was a form of abuse. I am glad that I found this book and you will too. I'd also recommend that you buy "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which takes an inspiring look at the power of God and forgiveness. It too is on sale here on BN as a paperback and a Nook book.
