To enter for a chance to win this book simply post a comment that answers this question... Have you ever met someone you really cared about only to discover after you had feelings for them that they had a troubled past? Did you worry that they might return to whatever it was they had done? I will go first.
I found out after I was married that my ex-husband had been severely abused as a child. He was afraid to have kids because he worried he would abuse them. We divorced in 1988 and I can't help thinking that it was God's way of protecting me and my future children. I wish I had known beforehand that he was a potential abuser. I also discovered that he had cheated on me a number of times after we married (hence the eventual divorce). So how is that for transparency? My 20th wedding anniversary to my current husband is next month. Thankfully I only have two children and they are both by my current husband. They turned out fine. I can't help wondering how different things would have been had I stayed with husband #1.
Now it's your turn. I will pick a winner using the Randomizer program next Sunday, July 11, 2010.
