Publisher's Summary

When bitterness strikes, intimacy is broken to pieces. When pride surpasses love, sorrow dominates. An unwelcome stranger became a third person, hoping to contribute to a marriage. A voluntary protagonist set herself for a mission to search out a riddle because a familiar being brought ultimate chaos into their midst. 

A beautiful young lady was imprisoned, tortured, and was destined for a grave due to the license her opponent earned. Fiona studied the effectiveness of the spirit world. Christianity remained an answer to dealing with the unseen force. Pain overflowed through her body and couldn't handle it anymore. From the hand of a cruel man she was delivered.

Start with the Author's Bio

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, this was kind of what I expected given the Author's Bio. I wouldn't say this was bad, I've listened to books with more technical flaws. I'd lean towards calling this Martyrdom porn, not the X-rated sense but more in the sense of a fantasy not reflecting reality. Overall, this will probably hit home for a niche audience, just seems that I'm not that audience.

On a general positive the Narrator has a wonderful voice, I'm assuming it's a pseudonym, as they only have two books listed and the other has nothing to do with the topic. I wish I knew her real name, as I think she would be great to listen to in a different setting.

solid performance to a confusing story

I'm afraid I wasn't the target audience. still I think it's fair to say that the story is very confusing as it jumps from one scene to the next leaving you lost for a second. the author takes their time giving you details about specific moments describing the scene but doesn't give you details as to the story. it's easy to see that this is a story about faith and religion but it's almost laughable how it works. the narrator was great though.

Not the target audience

This is the novela form of a Chick tract. A woman is persecuted and severely abused for, and only for, being a Christian. If you believe this is a credible scenario, then you may enjoy this book. If you find this premise to be straining plausibility, stay away.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Excellent!

This was a great, short listen. It’s always nice to squeeze in short stories in between long novels and From Shackles really did the trick.
