Book Description

Roseanne Eckroyd is an evil woman who runs a house of prostitution and believes she is accountable to nobody. When she gets pregnant, she gives birth because she’s afraid to have the unwanted child—which she considers a cancer—cut from her body. She allows the girl to live because it amuses her to watch little Ruth struggle.

Eventually, a customer offers to buy the child, now a young teen, for his son’s birthday party, and Roseanne realizes her genius in keeping the brat. She repeatedly sells her daughter, gleefully raking in the profits until another customer buys the child outright. Having no idea that the life of slavery she envisions is actually a rescue mission, Roseanne takes his money and hands over her child.

Years have passed, and Ruth’s rescuer has passed away. She takes life one day at a time. Wake up. Vow not to drink. Take care of David, her precious little boy. Go to work. Pray her mother doesn’t call. She refuses to contact her husband, for she believes that having her in his life is a recipe for disaster. And she will do anything to make his life better. Even stay away.

Jonathan Wellington is a committed Christian who ignored the warning signs when he fell in love with a young widow with a shadowed past. He thought on his wedding day that their lives would be sunshine forever. He doesn’t know Ruth is terrified of men. That she’s an alcoholic. That she’s a survivor of the sex trade. That her first husband rescued her and gave her the protection of his name while treating her like a daughter. And Jon doesn’t have any idea how much Ruth loves him. So much, she forced him to leave her.

As Jon’s gentle love and unwavering acceptance begin to heal Ruth’s emotional scars, the couple reunites, holding themselves accountable to their marriage vows, promising to love one another, and raising their son together.

But it makes Roseanne angry to see Ruth happy. When the wicked woman attacks, it will be up to Jon and his brother to hold her accountable.

The second book in the Wisdom series, ACCOUNTABILITY is a stand-alone novel with continuing characters from TAKE MY HAND.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Worthwhile August 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the first time I have wanted to review a Kindle book. This book is not without flaws, yet I would give it more than 5 stars if I could. Ms Walters leaves no doubt about what happened during the abuse. However, I didn't feel traumatized by reading it. This is one exception to the rule, "Show, don't tell." I liked the fact that Ms Walter's books are longer than many others, but the story could benefit from tightening up by a sensitive editor. A serious and thoughtful effort from an author who knows her subject.

5.0 out of 5 stars Accountability - 2nd in the series June 28, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great book. I enjoyed this book as much as the first book in the series, "Take My Hand". Sometimes a person is dealt a cruel blow, in this case an innocent child who was thrown into prostitution. With the help from loving supporters she is able to climb out of her 'hell'. Although the subject matter is not one we want to think about or believe that it exists, the author handled it tactfully and with grace. Excellent read.

More About the Author

Ledell Walters knows the Wellington family and their friends very well. She remembers the traumas they've overcome, she cheers for their successes, and she cries for their sorrows. She can tell you anything you want to know about them. How they're likely to react to different situations, how they've matured, even their weaknesses. They're probably a lot like you since they are, as we like to say around here, Southerners by birth and Christian by the grace of God.

The only catch is, the people are fictional. They live in a fictional community called Wisdom and the nearby fictional town of Magnolia in South Mississippi. Their stories, like our lives, don't fit neatly into one category of fiction, however. Ledell says that she writes about relationships: our relationship with God, with our spouse, with our parents and our children and our neighbor. The relationship between a man and his stepchildren. Between children who don't trust any father figure and the man who becomes their Dad. The relationship we have with friends who become strangers and with strangers who become friends. The relationship we sometimes try to have with people who want to manipulate and use us.

Like Ledell, the characters are mostly Baptist. Some people may think Christians believe they are perfect, but the Wellington family and their friends are flawed people who frequently forget to rely on God. They get angry and say things they shouldn't say, do things they shouldn't do. They make assumptions. They lie to protect someone, and the lie causes problems. Sometimes they repent fairly quickly. Sometimes they don't.

Perhaps because she has bachelors and masters degrees and worked in public education for twenty-eight years, perhaps because she is a national board certified teacher, several characters are teachers. Like the people in her real-life community, the people of Wisdom are busy, helpful, nosy, interesting, annoying, gossipy, and kind. And they are being manipulated by an evil man who continually makes them the target of criminals. The Wellingtons and their friends are real to Ledell. If you read one of her novels, they will become real to you, as well. As her daughter says, "I'm going to go live in one of your stories." Come join us there.
