My  5 Star Review

This lady really need a medal, Hadassah Martin walked the road of self destruction when she hated a man so much that she was contemplating his death. But God works. Never stops to lift us from our death grip, darkened road to bring us into His marvelous Light. He is always faithful to help us, guiding us with patience and understanding, amplifying His precious gift in our lives. 

An amazing tale unfolds as two friends met on a cruise ship after Thirty Two years of separation  recapturing the life of Hadassah in a remarkable and gripping recollection of her teenage years and the man who impacted her life and that of her mother in a destructive whirl of manipulation, deceit, lies, rape, prostitution, drugs and abuse. A man that held them in the palm of his hands destroying their very nature. 
Fast paced and well written you are drawn into her life and the wrong choices she made but at the end how God came and by His Saving Grace saved her from herself.  
A recommended read to those who struggles with the very issue of unforgiveness in their own lives, being renewed by the mind as the word washed over you and cleanse you.
