About the Book
Miriam Conrad’s life could not have been more difficult—from childhood neglect and sexual abuse to extramarital affairs, domestic turmoil, and more. Readers looking for a storybook ending may be disappointed, but those entering the story with curiosity and courage will find one of the most painfully amazing and exhilarating stories of grace they have ever encountered. Even the most hopeless circumstances leave room for God’s redemption.
Very few lives conclude with all the loose ends tied up. Miriam’s particular trauma is more pronounced than that of most, but the tension between brokenness and blessing will strike a familiar chord. At one point or another, we’ve all had to acknowledge that our lives are out of sync—damaged almost irreconcilably. Take heart. Even when the visible circumstances leave no hints of vindication, God is ever present, kind, and abundantly gracious.
Evil doesn’t get the last word. As Miriam’s story demonstrates, by confronting the darkness we find just enough light to thrive.
