Why is it that so many women allow themselves to be emotionally or physically abused? Do we deserve it? No. But we tend to make excuses for why the abuse happens, afraid of what life would be like if we weren’t suffering at the hand of someone we supposedly need and love.
On the other hand, some of us have the Savior mentality. If we hang in there, maybe we can love him into changing. Can’t he see it in our eyes? Doesn’t he trust our heart?
And we continue to live the lie.
Gina Holmes writes a compelling story in Wings of Glass. Through telling the story of Penny “One-Cent” Taylor and her abusive husband, Trent, Gina hits the nail on the head. Pulling no punches, Gina writes an accurate description of living under abuse and the dangers women face every day.
Emotional, heart-pounding, and full of expectation, I couldn’t put it down. I read it in three days’ time, a rare thing for me.
Wings of Glass is a story of triumph and overcoming mountains. If you know a woman who suffers at the hand of an abuser, I highly recommend gifting her with Gina’s book. Maybe it will encourage her to stand up for herself and triumph as well.
