From the best-selling author of Crossing Oceans comes a heartrending yet uplifting story of friendship and redemption.
On the cusp of adulthood, 18-year-old Penny Carson is swept off her feet by a handsome farmhand with a confident swagger. Though Trent Taylor seems like Prince Charming and offers an escape from her one-stop-sign town, Penny's happily-ever-after lasts no longer than their breakneck courtship. Before the ink even dries on their marriage certificate, he hits her for the first time. It isn't the last, yet the bruises that can't be seen are the most painful of all. When Trent is injured in a welding accident and his paycheck stops, he has no choice but to finally allow Penny to take a job cleaning houses. Here she meets two women from very different worlds who will teach her to live and laugh again, and lend her their backbones just long enough for her to find her own.

Yes, everyone needs to hear what it's like to have an abusive husband.
The support her friends gave her.
Susan is a winner. She ranged from a soft meek voice to a woman of rage.
I am the child of an alcoholic father who also abused my mother even more than this book expresses.
