Read & Relax Weekend Edition

     Book #2 for the weekend as promised. This book has a special place in my heart since it's about domestic violence. As a mental health counselor, I've worked with enough victims of emotional and physical abuse to know what an insidious problem it is in our society. And outside of America, domestic violence is often even more prevalent.

A Search for Purple Cows, A True Story of Hope
by Susan Call

      A whimsical comment from a kind stranger, "Be sure to search for purple cows," brings hope to a woman and her children fleeing from a life filled with trouble. In A Search for Purple Cows, Susan Call reveals to the world how painful a relationship can be when love deteriorates into a cycle of abuse and betrayal. Her moving memoir chronicles how she first met her husband, a handsome, stylish, generous man with whom she worked. Eventually they fell in love, married, and had two children. 
       Their life seemed idyllic--they had a beautiful home and everything a family could desire. But soon, inside those walls, Susan was tormented by her husband's alcoholism, domestic abuse, and infidelity that cast her family into a world fraught with fear and despair.
      God found her in the midst of her pain and showed her, through the unlikely source of a Christian radio station, that a journey toward Him was possible even in the most unthinkable circumstances. Susan eventually found the strength to move on and start anew.
       Written with candor and grace, A Search for Purple Cows will leave you laughing, crying, and believing that God is present and able, ready to bring hope and healing.
