Danger she can't escape.
Temptation she can't ignore.
And the secret that could destroy everything …
Blessing's worked hard as a single mom. Caring for her son, struggling to pay the bills, and straightening out her life after years on the street … It's the hardest job she's ever loved.
Until her ex-boyfriend reappears with a secret that could cost her freedom, her family, even her very life.
Blessing promised herself never to return to the hell she escaped from. But that was before she had a child to worry about.
A child who will die if Blessing makes the wrong choice …
Or the right one.
Would you be able to break away?
This is Blessing’s story. I must admit I was horrified at some of the things this poor child had experienced. The abuse at the hands of her psychotic ex-boyfriend who had also been her pimp opened my eyes to a world of exploitation that I couldn't even imagine. As she recalled her experiences, I found myself wondering why she allowed Jarrod to continue to have power over her. I came to the realization that she had never been given the tools to break away from that kind of manipulation. While she now is supposedly free, the ropes that bind her to him seem impossible to break.
There are plenty of twists and turns in this incredible story. The fact that God is always there, waiting for us with arms wide open is a recurring theme throughout the book, reminding us that forgiveness is there, we need only ask.
