At the tender age of seven, Esther was sent to live with a couple to work as their housemaid. What was done in love to provide Esther with food and better living accommodations turned into a twelve-year nightmare of physical and verbal abuse-something she kept hidden from her parents out of respect for their instruction to obey her employer.
When Esther secured her freedom, she turned away from God and decided to do things her way. Sadly, her decisions led to more heartache and trials. The freedom she sought ended in other forms of slavery. Could she ever find true freedom? Did God hold the answer?
Journey with Esther as she recounts her childhood, the lessons her parents taught her, her quest to come to America, two abusive marriages, and God's never-failing love and forgiveness in A Storm Within. Although her life has been battered by many storms, God has always been beside her.

Esther has “been through the wringer” per say. I can’t imagine what it must have been like being sent away from home at such as early age to live only to discover that you are living with an abusive employer. Esther experienced the cruelty of life at such as early age. And yet, she found hope in God. Despite all of the problems, she found solace in the faith her father and mother taught her. This is a good book especially for anyone who has experienced abuse or difficult marriages but who seeks to follow God.
