“Some part of me wanted to reclaim my lost self, but I was still afraid of Jason and what he might do. It was as if two people inside of me fought against each other—the one who wanted to be free and the one who was desperately afraid.” Having ten children, suffering nerve damage from the cold, and sleeping under a truck along the highway wasn’t what Tessy imagined her life would be like when she married Jason. Spanning three decades, this heart-wrenching memoir follows Tessy’s struggle to comply with her controlling husband’s desire to live like pioneers from a bygone era. As his carefully constructed fantasy continues its downward spiral, she is forced to face her fears and make a life-altering decision. Caution: This book includes scenes of rape, death, and emotional abuse.
