This book "A Woman's Long Road to Happiness" is just that, it's a long road to finding happiness after a physical and verbal abusive life. For seventeen years of living in an abusive relationship she decided enough was enough. It's a painful and inspiring triumphant story of a woman who fought to protect herself and her children from the abuser. She found her life's treasures afterwards. There are many women who live and stay in an abusive situation for one reason or another. Life is a long road that comes with many obstacles and sharp winding curves which eventually takes you to a crossroad of making a hard decision as to which road you should take. Everyone's abusive life story is different, some end up leaving and some never do. The greatest conqueror is to continue keeping the faith. When seeing the darkest helpless side of your life, never lose hope because he (God) will always have your back. The answers to prayers don't ever come right away but in time the doors will open to be able to fly into another dimension that changes the mind or situation for a better life. I hope this book helps others that have lived or have had similar experiences and to say that there is a silver lining with a bright beautiful rainbow at the other end of the road.
