I am really glad I read this book though. I have such admiration for Jennifer Graves and what she is trying to accomplish by writing this book. The things she has been through are so heart wrenching. So, so sad. But she is pushing forward. She has found light in all the darkness that surrounded her and now she is trying to tell a story that could save others from the same fate.
Reading this book was hard. It made me sad and it also made me angry. Nobody should have to endure abuse in any form. It takes bravery to tell this kind of story. It's so personal and so devastating. Jennifer Graves was raised in a twisted home full of darkness but she was able to break the cycle and rise above it. Her beautiful family is a testament to her and her husband that cycles can be broken and one person can make a difference.
Jennifer is speaking out for the voices that no longer can. She is telling her story to help those who may be suffering similar things. Her message is clear. There is hope. There is help. Please get help before it's too late.
I feel like I walk away from this book with a better understanding. I walk away with a greater appreciation for the husband and family that I have, determined to never take that for granted. I walk away with more compassion and empathy and hopefully knowledge that can help me if the day ever comes that I need it.
May God bless you, Jennifer Graves, and your family. Thank you for sharing your message with me. I won't forget.
