Giving up is not in Kate's vocabulary, quitting is not an option even when the injustices of abusive people appear to have control of her life. A Woman at the Well is a story of never quite 'fitting in' and the struggle to get free from the long term effects of child abuse. The healing journey is similar to a game of snakes and ladders, sometimes we take giant steps up the ladder and sometimes we take massive slides down the snakes belly leaving us feeling like we can never win. We search for truth only to find more lies and discover that sometimes the truth is more treacherous than the lies. The lies we believe about ourselves continues to keep us locked into the pain we experience now as adults in personal relationships, yet it is only the Truth that can set us free. This book is where the 'rubber meets the road' for survivors and counselors. Warning This book will be offensive to controlling, manipulative religious folk.
