Alice ‘keeps it real’ in this edge-of-your-seat page-turner that sounds more like a novel than a narrative of domestic abuse. Her colorful, transparent, tearful and yet joyful testimony brings hope to women who feel they are living in a house of abuse without exits. Through the lens of her painful story, Alice reveals the Lord’s promised presence even when we make our bed in hell. Keeping hope alive even in the midst of the most discouraging moments, Alice encourages the abused how ‘all things’ can be overcome through Christian faith. Her overcoming faith brings to life the Apostle Paul’s words, ‘I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.’ I highly recommend this book as a guiding light for all who are at their wit’s end and just don’t know what to do next.”  - PASTOR CHARLES MOCK, Community Baptist Church (Erie, PA)
