I loved this book

I just loved this book from the beginning. As a domestic violence survivor I found this book to be insightful and raw. I related to her story time and time again and I loved the way she was able to be descriptive without being graphic. She has done an incredible job. The ending wowed me as I saw the hand of Hod take this broken heart and created healing and wholeness through it. I cried, laughed, sobbed and smiled throughout this book. Awesome read and inspiring women.

Truly the forging of a warrior through adversity

This is a fantastic book, detailing Xenia’s fight for survival at the hands of a controlling, abusive and manipulative husband. I am not often shocked at what people have to go through but this book was truly shocking, and the depths that Xenia’s husband went to really got to me. She’s emerged a stronger woman, truly a warrior, and she is an inspiration to me. Xenia and her family are truly impressive.

Courageous and Inspiring

Wow! I couldn’t put this down. Xenia’s story had me personally invested right from the very beginning! The story is so wonderfully told I felt every emotion. My eyes were opened to the world of DV, this is a story that needed to be told.

Could not put it down!

This was the first book I had read end to end in a single night since I was around 14 years old and I’m 41 now! This book was written in a way that was clear, descriptive and graphic but was not a trigger to me as a domestic violence victim. Xenia’s book helped me become more committed to being a domestic violence advocate for other victims and helped me identify the red flags to warn others about in situations like this. This one is a must-buy... And if you have friends in this situation it would also be a great gift because you might be gifting more than you expect in terms of securing their freedom.

I couldn't put it down!

I read this book inside two days, and for someone that is not an avid reader that is saying something! Xenia tells her story how she navigated her way through a 15 year DV marriage and lived to tell the tail! What she endured and survived is a testimony in itself, but how she leant on her faith and allowed God to turn her ashes into beauty is something that simply needed to be told. This is one incredible story if resilience in the face of the worst treatment possible by one person on another! But God! This book is seriously one of the best books you will ever read. A must to have and a must to share!

I read this book in less than two days. For someone that is not an avid reader that is truly saying something! Xenia’s story is truly one that needed to be told. How she navigated her way through her 15 year disaster only God knows. What an incredible strength of character and resilience she has shown. This beautifully written book is truly a testimony of Gods graciousness and how He turned ashes into beauty. Xenia’s courage throughout shines through and this story truly needs to be shared. Simply one of the best books you will ever read!
