Linda Moore Kurth was shocked when her Christian counselor declared, “If you divorce your husband, Satan will win!”  Wrestling with the prospect of leaving her husband of twenty-five years, Linda was caught between the conservative Christian view of divorce and what she believed God was telling her. Her memoir touches on both faith issues and marital abuse, issues too many Christian women have faced in the past are still impacted by today. 

“Kurth writes honestly about how her faith supported her as well as the challenges she faced when the choices she made conflicted with some of her fellow Christian’s mores.” 
-William Kenower, author of Fearless Writing: How to Create Boldly and Write with Confidence 

“This is an engaging book about the struggle of knowing when to fight, and when to give up and make a new life for oneself.” 
-Susy Flory, New York Times bestselling author

Linda M. Kurth is a writer and a divorced and remarried Christian living with her husband in the home of their hearts in Washington’s Skagit Valley. She writes for both children and adults.
