Mar 24, 2012I believe my book can and will help many women and men out there who have battled through many struggles in life. Learn how I came to find peace in my life. I am not trying to gain sympathy from this but only helping others. What this speaks about is full truth and no, the cops did not help or even try to help. Please understand we all make foolish choices and yes I have also. But in no way am I making this story up.
Mar 14, 2012I read this book thinking I had been in a similar situation to this lady but found it was not a book at all but just a diary of events. It does not really help anyone through a bad time it just shows that certain women put up with all kinds of abuse and allow it to happen. It is self- indulgent saying poor me, look at the bad time I have had in my life but for the most part she did not help herself in either situation with her husband or the boyfriend. Even her employers are to blame but never her. Everyone is to blame but her. Why didn’t Emily (I assume that is her real name) report the rape to the police and have her husband charged with assault and rape, why did she stay with him putting herself and her child in danger. If her family is as supporting as she says they would have protected and cared for her. She says she stayed because of her vows but any woman would put her child’s safety before vows and what about the vows HE made. She says she came out a stronger person but still... More > shows her weakness by letting the boyfriend treat her the way he did. As for this boyfriend who treated her so badly she kept taking him back even after all of the truth came out so she was asking for trouble with him. If someone is so bad mentally no woman in her right mind would return again and again to be hurt even more. She says she left him and wanted nothing to do with him after she found out he was staying with his ex but then continues to call him her boyfriend and expect him to help her out. She says she was spending evenings with him but in another breath says she doesn’t want anything to do with him. She contradicts herself when she says she wants no more to do with the boyfriend but then talks of letting him move back in with her. She went to the ex girls house and left Christmas presents but why did she buy presents for a man who cheated lied and stole? Then on new years he stayed with her again. She blames the ex, she blames the man but the person to blame is HER. Women like this allow men to take control of them and dictate what they do and how they behave. She takes him back again and again and he still mentally abuses her but she allows it to happen by being with him and being weak. Men like these never change they will always use weak women. He invites her over and even after all this she GOES and then stays over, dumb. She says it was so traumatizing but still she goes back for more of the same. I read about the prowler and can not believe half of this. The police would always investigate any incident like this seriously and if they behaved in such a bad way she should have taken it to a higher authority not just run off at the mouth at the attending officers. It is easy and cheap these days to buy security cameras and record what goes on. Near the end of the so-called book she quotes from The Bible and claims to receive messages from God and then showers herself with compliments. I think, my dear, you need to look a lot deeper inside yourself and be more honest. Take the blame for your own failings and do not push it on to others, when things go wrong realize it is often because YOU have allowed them to happen that way. I feel I can make this comment as I was abused, raped and stabbed and my ex-husband is now serving a very long prison sentence for stalking me and trying to kill me and our children by setting fire to our house while we slept; his family have also threatened us and blame me for him being in jail. I did not stay around to be hurt I took my children to safety after the first episode of abuse and stayed away. He found us twice and each time we had to move city and then state and on the third time he found us he tried to kill us all. Now we are out of the country with our names changed after threats to kill us from his brothers and uncles.< Less
Feb 6, 2012Myself and my wife really loved this book!! It opened our eyes to the goings on of a friend in our life who we didn't know much of this was happening to. It tells the true life hard luck story of a woman that is like a phoenix, who rises from the ashes and finds herself with a new home in God's heart. It is a titallating story that many people should find useful in helping themselves out of their current situations that may be as destructive as the ones that the author had to live through! It is well written and you will really like this bok. We will recommend this book to all of our friends and family!
Jan 27, 2012I really enjoyed this book, in fact I couldn't put it down! I read it within 3 hours. What I liked best was that it kept my interest without any boredom what so ever (I have a difficult time retaining any information or sticking to reading a book if the story or writing is dry). I certainly experienced a full range of emotions as I read this book, from sad, to angry, to outraged, to happiness, and joy! I think anyone that has been involved in a abusive relationship will certainly identify with the author. I also think this book could help someone that is going through a simmular situation.
Jan 26, 2012I also read this book in one setting. You kept my interest, not just to see what was next... were you gonna catch the SOB?! But anxious to see how how you coped and still coping with all that was thrown at you. I think this book is helpful for those that can relate or know someone that has been in similar situations or have the feelings you expressed in this book, including myself. Reading this has given me a different outlook to the strugles in my own life and I beleive it will for others who read it too.
