“Turn off the light,” Heather sleepily murmured to her husband. When the room went dark, she opened her eyes and peeked out from the covers. The man standing in her bedroom was not Steve.
Raped in her own home, Heather’s terror went beyond her own safety: Were the kids sleeping soundly in the next bedroom, or did their silence mean something else? Would her husband save her, or would he face the same knife she did? And Heather’s agony did not end after the rapist left. Against all odds, she became pregnant as a result of the rape. Would she and her husband remain united as they faced the tyranny of the choice before them? Would they endure the strain of anxiety as they waited for HIV test results and answered strange telephone calls?
This gripping true-life story walks readers through Heather’s journey – from rape to restoration. Startling Beauty is undeniable proof that God can bring blessings out of the worst situations in our lives.
