The Putting Away by Sharel Gordon Love
About the Book
Denise, a single mom, has finally met the man of her dreams; one she can settle down with. As a bonus, he is the perfect partner to help her to raise her son, Amir. Bernard loves Denise with all of his heart, and other than his weekend drinking binges, he’s a pretty good man. The break up to make up scenario makes it all better and pacifies Denise every time.
Tonya and Gary are dealing with trust in their marriage and must come to terms with major issues that are adversely affecting their family as a whole. Finding their way back to the loving arms of one another has proven to be a difficult task.
Will Denise stop making excuses for the man she loves, or will she continue to allow abuse to shatter her life? Will Tonya and Gary return to each other and trust be restored in their marriage? As every act of abuse takes away a small part of them, will there be nothing left to take?
The Putting Away is a heart-wrenching, yet formidable tale of how the power of God can heal any situation, even those that are put to the test.
