A Search For Purple Cows, Susan Call

This is one of those books that is hard to put down. Within the pages of this book the author chronicles her journey through an abusive marriage and how God brought her hope and courage. It is one of those stories that you just want to silently hand to the woman that you see in the check line at the store who's eyes reveal a broken heart but who's smile says differently. Raised in a home that appeared perfect on the outside but was an absolute wreck on the inside - I can relate to the story well. My parents attended church and were considered the best people. No one suspected the abuse that went on behind closed doors and drawn curtains. To live this way is a torture in itself simply because even if you want to cry out for help you are afraid that no one will believe your story because of the perfect appearance presented. Susan met a handsome and seemingly perfect man - and after time they fell in love - the typical love story. However, things became dark and different after they were married. Joe was not who he had presented himself to be. Trapped, tormented, alone, and broken Susan began to experience God's love, courage and peace in the midst of a terrible situation. This God reached down and pulled her up - giving her the courage to walk away, forgive and start life over. This powerful and poignant story of bondage and God's ultimate freedom is one that should be shared over and over again. The Search for Purple Cows gives a clear picture of God's grace in the midst of the storm and pain of life. When your world falls apart the one who created the world has the power to put it back together. Thanks to B&B Media for this review copy
