after a difficult childhood, Kim has built a successful life for herself...but she'd leave it all if it meant being rid of the guilt she harbors over a tragic mistake she made years ago.

When she meets Rick, she finds everything she needs - including a way to pay for her sins every time he hits her. Kim and Rick's new neighbor, Joshua, knows more than Kim realizes about Rick, but Joshua has battles of his own to fight. Soon to intersect Kim's and Rick's lives is Debbie, who has saved countless women from abuse through the shelter she runs, but Debbie might be as desperate for love as the women she serves.

Meanwhile, as Rick's wrath extends to their baby, Kim must decide if her penance is more important than protecting that innocent life - and if she should dare leave Rick when he has the power to bring her hidden crime to light.

    " Sad, but optimistic -- about domestic violence -- well researched and well written -- all too real -- a Christian book that does not interfere with the message about abuse, both physical and mental! "

    " I would not consider this book great literature but I did like it. The characters were developed fairly well and I did care what happened to them, however contrived the story was. I think it at least serves a purpose to empower abused women. the one shining point to me was actually that the uplifting message applied to anyone carrying the guilt of sin. I had never thought of women staying in an abusive relationship as a means to atoning for a previous sin, consciously or unconsciously. Strobel drove home the belief that Jesus had already paid the price for our sins so if we made amends the best way possible then that was all we needed to do. It is not up to the individual to decide their own judgement. That is a very important and beautiful message. I look forward to discussing it in book club - which is the reason I read it in the first place! "

    " This book is a quick read and is pretty good. Some of it may be predictable, but I liked it. (I didn't finish it because half way through I realized I had already read it like 2 years ago, lol.) "

    " It was free. It reminded me why I don't tend to go for Christian novels. The story was too contrived, the characters too one-dimensional and the ending too convenient. "
