Horsfall and Stevens take on the difficult subject matter of childhood sexual abuse and handle it in a gentle manner that glorifies God in the process. This is a novel that could help women, whether they have personally experienced abuse or just know someone who has.

Mallory Carlisle doesn’t know what is wrong with her life. She has distanced herself from her husband Jake, who in turn spends more and more time away from home working. Mallory can’t figure out what is wrong, until she has a flashback to her childhood and remembers that she was the victim of sexual abuse. Through the guidance of a professional counselor, Mallory learns how to come to terms with her past to help repair her current relationships. (BARBOUR, Feb., 320 pp., $12.99)
