Book Description

One womans past of child molestation, teenage abuse, rape, family drama, failed relationships, failed jobs, and domestic violence. How she remained strong for her family and continued moving forward.

Sample Chapter

The next day, we were to head back home in the evening. Well, about one hour into our return trip, I was driving, Christian was in the front passenger seat, and the kids were in the back. I had a head full of rollers, just driving, not worried about a thing.

WHAM! Right across the face, Christian hit me hard with his fist.

Startled, I quickly pulled the car off the road onto the shoulder in a neck-jerking motion. I threw the car in park and swung both legs from beneath the steering wheel to the side, and turned to face Christian.

I started kicking Christian as if I were riding a bicycle. I shouted, “Are you serious? Have you lost your damn mind? In my face, you’re going to hit me while I am driving? What you just did was enough for me to crash into another car, jeopardizing my children’s safety.”
