Overview

Her unrelenting quest for justice in a corrupt system paves the road to Toni's destruction. This is based on a true story of the injustices endured by a naïve jailer who subconsciously seeks resolve for crimes committed against her and her daughter in the early part of a bad marriage.

With a set distinction of right and wrong, and a stubborn will to never defer, Toni finds herself trying to police the police. After a decade of working at the sheriff's department, Toni has recorded a plethora of wrongs by law-enforcement agents and the services for children. Because she knows too much, the sheriff and some of his followers diligently seek her fall.

What they do not know is that Toni has kept an ongoing journal since her teenage years. She carried a voice activated, mini-cassette tape recorder with her from the day she was interviewed for the job at the sheriff's department.

Toni is harassed, arrested, and almost destroyed, but her attorney assures her that the journal is proof enough of the corruption, and evidence enough to win her case against the sheriff.

When the attorney turns on Toni, she is left with a decision to make. Physically and emotionally exhausted from the battle, defeated by politics, and spiritually wounded, will she seek justice on her own terms or will she allow God to have His vengeance? Her strong belief in God and her search for the right path has played an important part in her life so far. Forgiveness is essential, but so is justice. Is there a way to obtain both in the salvage yard of souls?

... Justice prevails?

About the Author

Joyce is the third of five children, born to a preacher and his wife in a coal mining town of West Virginia. The town was wedged between the mountains and populated with fewer than five hundred people.
She spent most of her free time sitting on side of the mountain scribbling her thoughts, aspiring to be a famous poet. Before she knew how to hold a pencil, Joyce often begged her sister to write her words for her, but she refused saying, “I’m not your secretary.”
When in her early thirties, Joyce began sending poems and short stories to vanity competitions. Each entry achieved one of the top placements in the publication, and sometimes first place prize money. It was no great accomplishment but was encouraging. Her voice was not completely dead.
Divorced and living alone most of the time, on her income from a full time job, Joyce has one grown daughter and three grandchildren.
If you were to ask Joyce what matters most to her, she would say God and her family.
Hard work comes easy to her, but relaxing is something she never learned to do. Writing helps her do that.
She lives modestly in a once two bedroom cottage type house. She has a positive and upbeat attitude about life and is thankful to enjoy good health at sixty two. She loves everyone and though forgiveness is sometimes hard, she forgives readily. Forgiveness comes natural to her.

This book put me in my place. I enjoyed it so much and am still, weeks later pondering on it. I recommend that every person who believes themselves to be a Christian read this book and see if they measure up. Very well written and although shocking to a degree, I will read it again next year and maybe each year for the rest of my life.

This book is so entertaining. It's funny, sad, suspenseful, intriguing, and it keeps your attention. It is so descriptive that I can actually see the characters and all that's going on. It's the best book I've ever read.

FINALLY!!!!! a book that got my wandering mind to not wander while reading. From the first few sentences to the last word I could not put the book down. Loved how before each chapter there was a poem that had to do with what the chapter and previous chapter was about. Never saw that before. Also this book got every emotion known to man in my opinion. From sadness , anger , compassion and laughter the list goes on and on. Never a boring moment. It is a true story that is so shocking. I found my self relating to every character it was so cool. I could not put the book down until I was done. Now I am looking for another book from this author. This book needs to be a movie or atleast a tv drama movie. I found myself having a respect for the character of Toni. Toni has more strength than I believe she may know or realize. Toni became an inspiration to me. I have gained a respect for this character that I think we all can learn from. Demi her daughter has taught me the true meaning of forgiveness. Most importantly this story has taught me the true meaning of hope and faith. How Trusting in God can and will change your life and like Job in the bible. .. Keep your eyes on the Lord and you will be able to endure anything. This book can relate to anyone , male or female, child or adult, someone that is out for truth or someone that is part of crime, Christian or unbeliever. list goes on and on I really do not know anyone that can not relate to this story. From someone that does not read much books take it from me if it grabbed my attention I can guarantee it will grab yours. I found myself having a respect for the character of Toni.
