Juliana has spent the last seven years a
prisoner in her own home, abused and almost broken. Told by
authorities that her husband, Gary, has died, Juliana refuses
to believe that he is dead until hours later when she dials
the one number she has remembered for seven years. Unable to
believe that she is finally talking to her sister, Juliana
asks Cyndi if she could come to get her. Cyndi doesnít
hesitate and Julianaís healing begins.
What a powerful and absolutely gut
wrenching story this is. If Gary hadnít been already been
dead, I would have wanted to kill him myself. Juliana, for
all the abuse she suffered, is one of the strongest heroines I
can imagine. I love how she healed and made a new life for
herself. Especially since she found happiness.
Parts of Juliana made me
wince and parts made me smile. Not for the faint of heart at
times, I even almost had to stop for the tears in my eyes. I
thought the author handled the healing process realistically
and tastefully. I would enjoy reading more from this author.
