This is a very moving portrayal of Leona Stucky's life in dealing with domestic abuse while trying to maintain her faith through it all. Having been a victim of domestic violence myself, this book touched me on a personal level. I felt her fear and her struggle to find herself amid there struggles. It is a vividly descriptive book, as she brings us into her world. Living as a Mennonite, she is a strong believer in her faith. It is this faith that gives her strength to endure such abuse. It is no ...more

The Fog of Faith is a moving and beautifully written personal chronicle that at once presents a deep understanding of the emotional impact of intimate partner violence, as it also illustrates the profound (if still incomplete) historical changes in the ways we view violence against women. With clear and beautiful prose, Leona Stucky describes horrific abuse that terrorized her for many years, seeming at times as though it would never end--partly due to massive and repeated institutional failures ...more

The awful relationship with Ron, the struggle for selfhood, the rising consciousness of feminism are themes. There are times I felt a professional editor could have enhanced the story. There are long dialogues that do little to move the story forward, and monologues tha ...more

How does a person who probably should have been dead 16, or 18, or 22 years old, keep living? How does a person who should have been a welfare mother work to obtain multiple advanced degrees? How does a woman who had a hand held upon her mouth and a knife held at her throat not merely survive but thrive? This is part the incredible journey of Dr. Leona Stucky. The other part is her long wrestling match with god. I was astonished and inspired by by this incredible true tale of an extraordinary wo ...more

The book overall was a good read, but I felt that there were places in the book that were just too slow, with information added that did not add to the movement of the story.
