In another, later time, Lawrence Alewine would have been locked up for the torture he put his young wife Evelyn and their three children through. Indeed, from the first hours of their meeting, he relentlessly stalked her, then literally tricked the 16 year-old into marrying him and entering in a decades-long cycle of abusea€""one that began a generation earlier with his father and brother. Set during the early years of World War II and beyond, the heart-wrenching memoir Till Death Do Us Part is Evelyn Fort Stewart's message to every abused woman out there: Read this and be assured you are not alone. Sixty-one when she began putting her story to paper, Stewart endured 10 years of dredging up memories from her happy childhood as one of 12 siblings to the years spent with Alewine, who not only cheated on and beat her and her three children, but put the family through years of destitution and mental hell. Alive only by the grace of God, Stewart's story is a love letter of hope to the abused and, yes, even to those who continue to abuse. By breaking the chain with her story, Stewart shows us that inner light can overcome and that, with God, anything is possible.
