"The idea of leaving everything behind, filling my car with some extra panties, tampons, and Oreos and driving off into the sunset has been a fantasy of mine for years. But I don't have the courage for all that. Sure wish I did, though. I'd throw caution to the wind and let the road take me to where ever it wanted me to go and when I got there, I'd stop long enough to pee, then get back on the road and drive off to some other sunset in some other town. Maybe one day I'll take myself up on this dream but until that time comes this place will do just fine. I feel renewed here because my new home is filled with my energy and no one else's. It's become my haven and
sanctuary. Everything here belongs to me and my spirit resides here. That's cool because my spirit is pleasant and easy to get along with."--EXCERPT
Ruth Johnson has finally left her abusive husband of 14 years and jumped feet first into "What the hell do I do now?" oblivion. Having mastered the art of dodging the bullets of her husband's temper, Ruth soon discovers that letting go of the past is easier said than done. Long after the physical scars disappear, the affects of the emotional abuse linger on, continuing to dictate who she is and how she should live. Ruth is determined to overcome years of conditioning and erase the damage left behind from her marriage. She slowly begins to design a new foundation for herself and in the process, learns valuable lessons that change her life forever.
"Ruth Johnson is a heroine to me because she's fought her way back from believing she's nothing to finally discovering that she does matter. She's learned that validation of who she is comes from the inside out, and not the other way around. Only when she learns this lesson, does she become invincible."
