I LOVED THIS BOOK. I COULD HARDLY PUT IT DOWN. IT SHOWS EVEN THOUGH WE ARE CHRISTANS WE CAN STILL HAVE TRIALS AND LIFE IS NOT ALWAYS EASY. BUT THERE IS A WAY TO FIND FREEDOM.

An extremely emotional read...the mother is in a psychiatric hospital suffering from depression and near suicidal, the father is totally unaware that anything was wrong with his wife, the daughter is being abused in a foster home...and no one is willing to admit they might share in the blame for what went wrong. This is the kind of book that has to be put down every few chapters so that you can recover from the emotional reactions it generates in the reader.

A hard to put down book, with a lesson about being honest in our relationships, and the stress & troubles that can result when we aren't.
