It is very hard to understand why any woman would stay with a man who beats her. After you read this book, which will give you an insight into what motivated Connie Chaney's choices (and her hubands as well), you will understand a battered woman's mind set a whole lot more. This book moved me emotionally, and brought a deep saddness to my heart. By the end of the book, you know her husband will kill her (she even knows he will) and you feel as helpless as she does.
