Leaving by Audrey Holland

   Five hundred dollars and an adventure are what were in store for Judy Mitchell.  She found her husband cheating with his sister's maid of honor before the wedding.  Judy managed to hold things together until the reception. She finds out for certain her husband has been cheating and walks back to his sister's house in the cold and snow.  Taking the $500 he stashed under the mattress, she packs up their two sons and heads for home.  Scared, unsure and concerned for her sons, she decides to pull into a rest stop overnight. With the help of a truck driver, she and the boys stay warm and dry that night. Soon after they take off the next morning she finds out her husband, the cop, has the police looking for her and the boys.  Judy's adventure goes on from there.

   AMAZING!  This book shows what can happen when you take a stand. When you've had enough of the crap.  I think Audrey Holland did a wonderful job in capturing the emotions, the fear and the final bravery.  I applaud her topic and the willingness to share it with the world. All women should  read this and remember, don't let ANYONE disrespect you!  I think this book is one all domestic violence shelters should share and it should be part of marriage classes.  Thank you for allowing me to read this book and experience what you did. I myself have in a similar situation, though not a husband.  

I didn't find anything wrong with this book.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it's a testament to how brave women can really be.
