Its starts with a woman Penny writing a story her and her husband Trent's story to her son so that he can understand his dad and not be like his father. She explains how they met and how he started to abuse here physically and mentally. She was very dependent on him until he was injured in an accident at work so she has to support the family. She then meets 2 women who help her gain strength in the Lord and make her question the abuse by her husband. Penny also wrestles with the idea of would God want to stay in a very abusive marriage where her life is at risk. I don't want to give away any more of the story. But it is very powerful.
It was a hard book to read but well worth it.
