Once upon a time in a faraway land, a long, long, time ago, a beautiful girl lived in a royal palace. And as many daughters of kings do, she waited for the day when her Prince Charming would arrive on the scene, recognize her beauty, and fall in love with her. Prince Charming never came. She didn't live happily ever after. Something devastating happened.
Her brother raped her. Her brother.
Like an unannounced tornado that touches down before unsuspecting city-dwellers have a chance to take cover, sexual abuse blindsides victims in its wake. Against the backdrop of torment, Jesus, a fellow-sufferer, speakes into our anguish and paves the road toward a life beyond desolate. Beyond Desolate proclaims hope into a world not absent of ache, but a world where He bleeds with us and brings us a new song.

Soccer MomAge: 25-34Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent ResourceFebruary 1, 2013Soccer MomAge: 25-34Gender: female"Beyond Desolate" tackles a serious subject and is an excellent resource for people who are dealing with serious problems and need help. Almost everyone I know could benefit from reading this book- either because they have been victims of abuse themselves or have loved ones who are dealing with a trauma. Both authors who have backgrounds with abuse, not only show how they deal with their own personal issues, but tell many stories of others who have conquered their pasts and find hope and joy in the aftermath.
It's not a text book, but it's definitely not a quick read. It's a horrible subject that I wish we didn't have to have books about - but "Beyond Desolate" handles it very tastefully and certainly has changed how I think about people who are fighting to recover from abuse.
