Some would say she's loyal, others would say she's a doormat. But what would God say? Strong, passionate, yet tenderhearted Lucinda is determined to make her marriage work. She can see all the potential in her husband, Rod, and besides, she doesn't believe in divorce. But Rod seems equally determined to stay miserable...and drag her down with him. That is, if he doesn't beat her up first. At what point does "turn the other cheek" not apply? Lucinda's struggle peels the lid off age-old questions within her, challenging her newfound faith. Lucinda's journey is not a straight line to freedom, but dips and detours with each decision she faces. Can she trust the ones offering her healing and hope? How does she know she's hearing from God? She doubts herself at every turn, yet seeking help seems even scarier than sticking it out. It could cost her everything...
