A must read for every woman!
I gave this book as many stars as I could , because even though some parts were hard to listen to, she wasn't a weak woman. He took advantage of her vulnerable state she was in at the time. He also hid his intentions and true character until after he got her to marry him. I don't want this review to be give the story away but will say this story has a very nice ending and would be beneficial for a woman going through any kind of abuse to read. It is very empowering and shows there is a good life out there besides abuse. Very insightful and enjoyable read!
