I read this book in one sitting, delaying other things I had scheduled to do, the day it arrived in the mail. While doing so, I found my hand upon my heart as I learned for the first time, what it is like to be a young girl going through sexual abuse by a relative who should have been trustworthy, but wasn't. Ms. Gilmer's writing - her ability to describe in detail what it was like for her, how frightened she was and hopeless she felt as she had no one to tell what was happening to he - will take your breath away. Unfortunately, as she grew older, her life became much worse due to the abuse she suffered and the poor decisions she made as a result - the same decisions ANYONE in her shoes would have probably made. I know what it's like to feel worthless and emotionally abused, and that's bad enough. But Ms. Gilmer continued to suffer until she reached her breaking point ... just where almighty God wanted her to be. It was the best decision she could have ever made - the best decision ANYONE could make, that as the small rudder of a mighty big cruise liner changes direction by the captain's turning of the wheel, her life began to change. By crying out to God, Who she realized was her only hope, He rescued her from the pits of despair and placed her on the solid rock upon which she stands today. Ms. Gilmer's journey from the prison of hopelessness and helplessness to the beautiful "promised land" that her life is today, is incredibly inspiring. This is one of the best books I've ever read, and I believe it will be the same for you.
I couldn't put this book down. I couldn't believe I was reading about the true story of a woman, who not only survived an abusive childhood and marriage, but was able to break free and begin again in Christ. Thank you for sharing your story. As a single mother, I also fell in the trap of having a sexual relationship outside of marriage before my divorce was finalized. I suffered the consequences of my actions and lost my kids in my custody battle. I realize now that GOD used the time away from my kids for me to grow closer to Him.Thank GOD He is faithful and restored to me what was lost. It's been over 8 years since that relationship and I thank GOD every day for His strength to follow Him. Praise GOD!
