“Wings of Glass” by Gina Holmes, book review
Penny is just trying to get by and stay out of her father’s way. He can be pretty hard at times and she learned early on to give him a lot of room. So when Trent shows up to work on the family farm, she is so taken with his good looks and smooth words that she notices little else. He has come to save her! They run away and get married. She is so happy!
But this is short-lived, as Trent’s true nature is quickly reveled, and it is ugly. The story is Penny telling her son, Manny, about his father and their story. It is a story of abuse, control, and other disturbing details. But Penny stays true to her wedding vows, and Trent always says he will never hurt her again.
This is not an easy book to read. It is the true picture of domestic violence and how the woman involved get trapped. Thankfully, Penny is befriended by other women who care about her and give her the strength to get out! But it almost costs her the life of her newborn son, and herself.
Good read for anyone wanting to know how an abused woman feels and why they cannot see the truth of their situation. Also, great ideas for helping those in need.
