Dallas-Fort Worth—Despite feelings of uneasiness quickly dismissed as bridal jitters, the young bride pledged her life and love to her betrothed in a fairy tale wedding held in the autumn of 1991. As she stepped from the church into the bright sunshine of her new life, she had no idea she was walking straight into an abusive nightmare that would soon take control of her life.

My thoughts...

The author has overcome a life of abuse and has written her story to help others. Too many times women ignore the little warning signs as she did. How sad to think of the many women going through this daily.

I wasn't impressed with the writing style and felt the story could have been told better, the effect wasn't as powerful as it could've been. People need to be made aware and need to know what to do to help someone in a relationship like this. Abuse is horrible and no one should have to endure it. I'm thankful the author escaped this terrible marriage.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
