Ever since her teen years, Abi Rhode found that keeping a diary was a way for her to vent and tell her story. Pages took on a life of their own, storing the secrets of her soul in addition to the real life drama that played out in her home and life. A narrative of love and pain, her journals go all the way from her early years through to her divorce from her high school sweetheart.
As an adult, secrets of horrific abuse, both physical and emotional, play out on the pages of her diary. She voices her heartbreaking fear for the lives of her children, but despite difficulties, Abi still dreams and hopes for a normal life with wide-eyed, childlike enthusiasm. Her journey alternates from hope and sunlight to darkness and despair.
Read her words. Laugh with her and cry with her, but above all grow with her and learn to overcome whatever is thrown your way. Into Darkness is the first book of the four-part “Heartfelt Series” from S. L. LeClair. In this case, fiction is based on real life as LeClair uses Abi’s diaries to chronicle domestic violence, mental illness, and redemption.
