This is the story of Raymond who gets through a life of abuse and hardships only to find himself caught into a different kind of difficult situation. His experience at survival will be crucial as he faces his future and his past.
Ms. Turney does a great job of taking the reader into the life of Raymond. This story is not just of an abused child. Ms. Turney brings in hurt, anger, forgiveness, acceptance, and more.
This is not a read to finish in one day. You'll want to take your time and absorb it all. Nothing is written to fill in space. It is important to the character of the story and the development of plot.
Expect to get involved with this book and want more of Ms. Turney's work. It might also be a book to dredge up memories and issues. Many will be able to relate to the characters.

Because Raymond had spent his entire life being abused by his father and trying to remember his absent mother, love was something that he lacked. When Raymond found love in college, it appeared that he had put his past behind him in order to move on. Unfortunately after a tragic accident, Raymond turned into the man that he had feared for so long. I was excited for Raymond when he fell in love with Brenda and anticipated reading the story of their love together. Brenda helped Raymond recover from the accident, but instead of appreciating her it seemed as though he almost resented her for being there. It was heart wrenching to read how Raymond basically became a recluse just to run away from what he desired most in life. It was also touching to watch Raymond and his father's relationship improve over the years, so much so that Raymond ended up living back at home. The love story that I so eagerly anticipated did come to pass and Brenda and Raymond reunited many years later. Although I was angry with Raymond for being so stubborn, this is exactly the type of love story I like to read. Happily ever after gets me every time.
