It's the stuff of nightmares-being trapped, in danger, stripped of dignity. Add to that a religion that justifies such treatment and a family ready to reject anyone who protests and it is no longer a nightmare; it is Sarah Garcia's reality. This novel is inspired by the true-life story of a young woman raised in the Jehovah's Witness religion. Sarah obeyed all the rules and married a prominent man. This man became her tormentor, abusing her mentally, physically and sexually throughout their marriage in the belief that he has the scriptural authority to do so. And when Sarah looks for help, the community, including her parents, turn their backs on her. But Sarah is determined to make a better life for herself and her two-year old daughter. And she isn't alone. Risking her own position in the congregation, her beloved grandmother rises to Sarah's aid. Follow Sarah's remarkable journey of abuse, loss, love and renewal. Author S.L. Wilharm and her husband live with their growing family in Benson, Arizona. She was motivated to share her story out of the wish to bring hope to others who feel trapped by their circumstances. This is Wilharm's first book.
