Publisher's Description

From the best-selling author of Crossing Oceans comes a heartrending yet uplifting story of friendship and redemption. On the cusp of adulthood, eighteen-year-old Penny Carson is swept off her feet by a handsome farmhand with a confident swagger. Though Trent Taylor seems like Prince Charming and offers an escape from her one-stop-sign town, Penny’s happily-ever-after lasts no longer than their breakneck courtship. Before the ink even dries on their marriage certificate, he hits her for the first time. It isn’t the last, yet the bruises that can’t be seen are the most painful of all.

When Trent is injured in a welding accident and his paycheck stops, he has no choice but to finally allow Penny to take a job cleaning houses. Here she meets two women from very different worlds who will teach her to live and laugh again, and lend her their backbones just long enough for her to find her own.

Editorial Reviews

TOP PICK! 4½
Holmes handles the topic of domestic abuse with grace and compassion. All of the characters are well developed and real. She even manages to portray Trent’s good qualities as well as his bad. The reader understands Penny’s plight and the reasons she stays. You’ll be sorry to see the story end, because it is so honest and mesmerizing.
SUMMARY: When Penny Carlson runs away with Trent Taylor, she discovers that life is not the fairy tale she expected. After years of isolation and abuse, Penny’s self-confidence is at an all-time low. When Trent is severely injured in a work accident, he agrees to let Penny work to support them. While at the local food bank she runs into Callie Mae, who offers her a job cleaning houses. Working beside her is Fatimah, and the three women become fast friends. Through them, Penny gains confidence and independence, but will it be enough to leave Trent?

At the tender age of 18, Penny Carson believes that she has found her true love in Trent Tyler. Not long after they marry, Trent hits Penny for the first time; her Prince Charming has become her abuser. When Trent is injured at work, Penny finds work cleaning a house. There, she is befriended by two women who help her discover her own strength.
Verdict: Holmes (Crossing Oceans) creates complex, fully realized characters, deftly portraying the nuances of an abusive relationship in a way that will help readers understand why battered women don’t immediately leave their abusers. This gripping novel is sure to appeal to Christian and secular readers alike. Recommend it to fans of Karen Kingsbury and Kimberla Lawson Roby.
