Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I purchased “Ever Faithful to His Lead: My Journey Away From Emotional Abuse,” and read it in one sitting that very evening. I couldn’t put it down. This true-life memoir gripped me with the honest portrayal of an intelligent, well-educated woman who learned the long and hard way, that she could say no to abuse. I loved the author’s way of telling her story, especially showing her fun and sassy Italian roots. Reading her life story as a good Catholic girl, from her first dates as a student during the Vietnam era, right through nursing school, and her first and second disastrous marriage, was like watching a really good movie, something Bette Midler would act in. This memoir, though full-length, was fast-paced, and though not a fictional novel, the writing quality pleased me as much as a good novel would. I highly recommend this non-fiction memoir to those who like a really good true story, that clips along with fresh-air honesty. The author was not perfect. She made some mistakes, but all in all, she’s the kind of woman you look up to. A woman you root for from page one. A woman who needs to learn to love herself, a lesson we all need to learn. As a Protestant Christian I also really appreciated the quiet strength of the author’s Catholic faith.
