This book is based on a really good friend of mine that went through over twenty years of abuse from her marriage. I took bits and pieces of her life that happened while she was married putting my own spin on this book making it into my own version. She finally got fed up with all of it and left her husband one day for good but some of the things that happen in this book is what she went through in her life. It is sad that people get into relationships like this but unfortunately he was not that way when they first met. He changed after their marriage and it just got worse.
