Dr Christie's book deals with the subject of marital abuse in a different and almost interactive way with readers. The mandate of this book is to help battered wives in unbearable abusive marriages to put a halt to their descent into the bottomless abyss that life has drawn them into; and realize there is a way up, out and onward, thus empowering them. Above all, the book provides the path to healing after abuse and taking charge of one's future. ""This stories of the book are at once heart wrenching and inspiring. It has taken candor and courage for Christie to carefully articulate the cause of this victimization and offer correctives. I recommend this book for your reading."" --Dr Ravi Zacharias, Author, Speaker and Founder of RZIM ""This book is practical, filled with real life examples and thoughtful counsel and shows the path for healing from the debris of abuse and violence by the grace of God."" --Rev Dr Mohan, Vice Chairman, World Assemblies of God ""Dr Latha's book provides hope and wisdom to abuse survivors.
