Her ability to build tension and keep her story moving forward is a credit to her tenacious spirit and strong faith as well as to her storytelling skills. I actually read this memoir twice because it felt overwhelming that despite enduring so much for so long, she was still able to share the lessons of her trials so effectively. I wanted to give this story a second chance because I sensed an underlying strength and resilience in her character that made me want to understand both her and her story’s main message more clearly.
So many people will relate to this story. We all have burdens and challenges in our lives, many of which we do overcome. To take that extra step, as Carol has, to share the rawness and pain and to show at so many junctures how her faith in God pulled her through gives us all the gift of hope. For non-Christians, she does not preach, but rather she shows through her faith how her hope for a better life was nourished.
I recommend this memoir without reservation to anyone who has encountered life’s challenges and needs to find a source of hope that their life will be better too.
I was in a marriage with a controlling man and she describes this, her first marriage to a controlling personality disordered man with all the repercussions that go with a one sided confusing relationship. She was young when she married him, but this can happen to anyone, at any age! Luckily she divorced him 5 years later only to have him come back into her life, causing more pain to her and her new loving spouse.
I also can relate to her infertility stories with her painful endometriosis and adoptions, which she describes so well. Being forced to relinquish her first adoptive child is heartbreaking! After a successful 2nd adoption life continues to throw at her even more hurdles including health, legal and financial problems, more than most of us could even imagine or endure. The author and her husband perceiver with the strength of their faith and hope.
Some say the best is yet to come. I’m sure that’s so for author Carol Graham because she’s had her share of a battered life. Ms. Graham is an inspiring person and “Battered Hope” is an inspiring good read!
