I read your book in two days. As I turned each page, I knew what was next. I feel like I wrote your book.
The similarities were uncanny. The poor cat he made me give away, the refusal to acknowledge what he had done,the gun to my head,the red marks around my neck, going unconscious, the isolation, the fear to tell anyone,the jealousy if I talked to anyone but him, what you went through five days before your wedding.
As I stood getting the final alterations on my gown one week before, I had large, ugly bruises on my back. I knew I was making a mistake. But I loved him so much.
I thought it would get better. On my wedding night, he was thrown in jail finally after a 911 call. He beat me badly. He still never will admit it to this day.
I went through that alone far from home in another state, never telling anyone. It was too embarrassing. How could I let this happen to me?
Your book made chills go up my spine. I HAD BEEN THERE, TOO. I finally divorced him five years ago. I still love him. I still struggle with this. I'm still fighting to recover.
I just wanted you to know that your book really helped me. Honestly, THANK YOU. It was great to know I wasn't the only girl this happened to. God Bless.
