I thoroughly enjoyed a story set in Australia that touched on themes near to my heart. The story well-portrayed the doubts and fears that plague domestic violence victims, particularly in a Christian setting. It showed the author's firsthand experience with abuse and the crippling fear generated by long-term abuse. The themes of grace and forgiveness were not contrived. The support of a Christian community through her journey was encouraging and showed God's providence. A brave story to write, giving an honest glimpse into the thoughts and feelings of abuse victims and those married to alcoholics.
