Publisher's Summary

Can Chris forgive the unforgivable? If not, is she willing to pay the cost? A cost that may be more than she ever imagined....

There's nothing Chris McIntyre hates more than child abuse. And now one of the children at Kimberley Square's new gymnasium is showing the signs - signs Chris knows all too well. With no evidence to take to the police, the tough-as-nails former soldier knows it's time to take matters into her own hands. But her anger at the abuser goes deeper than defending an innocent child.

Memories haunt Chris - memories of her own childhood and her own father. As these memories locked inside her well up into a rage that threatens to consume her, she finds it impossible to forgive. But how can she continue as a Christian while harboring hatred in her heart? One remarkable man may hold the answers to help Chris sort through the agonizing secrets of her past. To help her find a road to peace. But the route threatens to take her to a place she thought she'd never again have to go - a place she swore she'd die before ever seeing again.

Realistic

This book is a realistic and moving protrayal of child abuse. Fleisher shows the damage child abuse causes and continues in the emotional health of adults. She also shows that although it is painful, healing can be found.

Eeeew cringeworthy.

Don't read this unless you are a serious Christian.

Leaving aside the incessant "dear lord" stuff, the story and the reading is cringeworthy.

I picked this book thinking it was a story about ex-soldiers and that there was a story in there. But it needs a health warning.

Pretty much the same health warning as fifty shades of dross - if you're not committed to the cause, don't bother.
