Welcome, Michelle. It's great to have you as a guest today. You have a book releasing this month. Give us the title and a short blurb about the book.
The title of the book is When Love Collides. Raquel longs for physical healing, but God uses someone from a dark time in her past to heal something more important...her heart.
She married a man ten years prior who acted violently toward her, so she learned to tread carefully around people so she wouldn't provoke wrath in others. She has trust issues as well from her father leaving her and her sister as young girls, pluse she felt like a plain woman next to her gorgeous sister who always attracted more attention from men.
Many individuals (women, men, children) are victims of abuse. How do you deal with the subject in your book?
I show how even a decade after an abusive relationship ends the victim may continue to deal with the ramifications from that one negative relationship spilling over into another. There is always a bit of mistrust and waiting for things to fall apart. Normal anger takes on a different meaning, as well as typical male/female arguments, which seem more threatening. Everything is filtered through the "lens" resulting from abuse.
