A once vibrant oak tree in her yard began dying, voicing cries of help through its dead leaves and moss-covered branches. Inside the house Barbara too was in crisis, the recipient of her husband's anger and rage. As time passes Barbara can no longer stay strong. While she deals with her own demons, the oak too weakens. Based on a true story, this woman takes us inside her emotionally charged existence, letting us feel the anguish of domestic abuse, divorce, attempted suicides, and incarceration in a mental institution. A savior finally unravels the mystery surrounding her dysfunctional mental state and leads her on the path to recovery. This book is a must-listen for anyone going through domestic abuse or depression, or family members who are trying to make sense out of the situation.

I’m glad I read this book as it opens my eyes to the serious subject of domestic abuse.
The story had similarities with my own life in many ways even though I am a man.
The precise struggle of physical abuse is different but the surrounding circumstances and subsequent recovery story is strikingly similar.
The story is difficult to read at times because of the graphic descriptions but the message would not be the same without it.
Some scenes are drawn out a bit too long though.
This book will help many people understand the unfairness of life and also provide hope in the beauty of hope itself, the power of faith and the gifts that come from preserving.

I just finished the audio book. It took me a minute because as the reader I experienced Barbara’s hopelessness and pain. I was relieved when she was diagnosed and freed. The audio book was very impactful.
