WAKE UP! Based on a true story of abuse and betrayal By: Hunter Marshall Published: 3 March 2015
Synopsis via Goodreads
I only knew two things when I married Grey Andrews: one, I
was in love and two, I wanted to rebel against my parents. For the first time
in my life, REALLY rebel. I, however, wasn't prepared for the onslaught of
negativity and abuse I encountered.
Grey would make sure I knew where I stood, with him, and
with everyone else. He of course, was allowed to go and do whatever, wherever
he pleased. Even during the rare times I would stand up to him, he would be
sure that I knew I was nothing.
"You? What man in his right mind would want you? You
are the biggest bitch I've ever known. Not to mention, you are damaged."
Grey said as he wheeled around with that all too familiar sneer. The last thing
I heard was, "I only married you out of pity."
Did he really mean that? I loved him so much and thought if
I loved him enough, he could change. I felt like I had been punched in the gut!
Would he realize how lucky he was to have a beautiful wife and son. Only time
Grey made sure I was knocked down several pegs at all times,
but. even worse than that was the way he treated Tyler. My heart bled every
time that sweet little boy was pushed off to the side and denied the attention
he so deeply needed and deserved.
Do you ever "Get over" abuse, betrayal and
adultery? My answer, no. You "get through it", but you don't ever
"get over" it. You take it one baby step at a time and it is the
support of great family, good friends and a loving Heavenly Father that makes
continuing on even remotely possible.
Note: The novel has graphic language and description due to the abuse.
