The Road Less Traveled: A Story of Love, Pain, Hope and Everything In-Between

Rate this book
Life doesn't always work out the way we planned. Things happen that we have no control over, and circumstances seem overwhelming. I never thought I'd marry an abusive man-a man whose mental demons turned him into two different people. I never imagined being a widow at the age of thirty-eight. I never dreamed that one decision could so profoundly change my life and my viewpoint of mental illness. I didn't know how much I still had to learn about myself. Through these circumstances, I now know more about who God is. I also know who he is not. I know more about who I am now, and I know who I will not be anymore. I have always believed in my head God could work everything out for good and that He loved me-now I know in my heart. Head knowledge and heart knowledge is completely different. I invite you to read these pages with an open mind and heart. Allow our story to shed light in dark places. Freedom is within these pages-the freedom to be yourself, to be loved for who you are, and to bring your hurts into the light of God's love where he heals all things. Remember, love is the greatest of all things and it does conquer all. Love has already won.

Well, this book was more of an informational experience for me. I have read very few books like this and as author requested in the book I have read it with an open mind.

It's about Author's life and how she came across to know more about mental illness. She describes how this has affected her marriage and how if she would have known this before she would have understood situations much better.

She also explains how this whole experience helped her to emotionally grow and see the greater good. She describes her love for God and how God has always loved her with providing family and friends as a support in difficult times.

The title says it all: It's a story of love, pain, hope and everything in between.

A very good and transparent revealing of a marriage with pain, and struggles and heartache and death. But through it all is the hope of Christ and the purpose for it.
