As a small child, Jesse never knows the safety and security that God intends for her to have. Forced to endure unthinkable horrors, she suffers in silence, afraid and unable to seek protection. But Jesse finds the courage and strength to become a survivor. By emotionally withdrawing from the physical and sexual abuse of her stepfather, she finds comfort and refuge within herself. In so doing, Jesse comes to understand that every child of God is precious, special, and pure.
Through Jesse's story, author Maxine Graff gives hope to those who have suffered abuse. Jesse's Power is about learning to trust even when the logic and reasoning seem unclear.
Jesse's strength and courage demonstrate that all things are truly possible-even the weakest can receive the power to achieve victory over evil.
