Publisher's Summary

Monique, the daughter of San Diego Chargers football great Earl Faison, married her high school sweetheart soon after she discovered she was pregnant with his child. Her relationship with Chris was shaky from the start, but turned tumultuous as he became verbally and physically abusive. When she could no longer put up with the abuse, she left him with their children. That was when the stalking and genuine threats began. Nothing stopped him - not protection injunctions, police warnings, or even arrests. One fateful Monday morning, Chris kidnapped Monique in front of her children and drove off on a nightmarish car ride that involved car crashes and rape. He mercilessly beat her on the head with a shovel and abandoned her brutalized body in the woods in the rain. He left, presuming she was dead . . . but was she?

too much religion

I'm not a believer in religion and believe it creates most problems in the world.

God Kept Her Through it All

OMG as I listened to my cousin’s story, I became furious and angry at ALL she endured at the hands of her first love, the father of her children. God had a plan for Monique’s life because through it all, He kept her. Thank You, Jesus! I will never know why God takes us through tragedies such as this but I do know that there’s a lesson to be learned; and her testimony will be used to help those who struggle as she did. Her survival is a blessing!!!

Well Told and Captivating

I applaud those who can tell their stories of Domestic Violence. This book is open, honest and for me helpful to understand just how damaging a narcissist can be.
