“There is always a choice in life. One way of life is to follow the word and the will of God. The other is to follow the way of the world. I had chosen to drift further and further away from my home and Christian upbringing to follow a man who was not a Godly man but a follower of his own whims and desires.” The book is a poignant account of a woman’s experience and escape from the hell of domestic abuse.

Book Description
“Often, when I came home at night, the house was empty and my sleeping child was left alone. On another occasion I came home to find him waiting for me, out of his mind about something. I had a premonition that night that this was not going to be a good night. I heard a voice warning me not to go in the door, but I ignored it and went in. He punched me so hard my lip burst open and a front tooth was knocked out.” Once married to a violent man, the author was what we have come to call a “battered woman”, living a life of daily terror and torture. This poignant book reveals the depths of her despair and how she escaped a hell on earth through faith and courage, taking the initiative, fleeing eventually to the safety of a refuge. This book will give hope to many women in a similar situation today.
