Healing will require more work than Jennifer has ever done! Will she ever find real joy and peace?
Susan DeBeeson has come in contact with many “Jennifers” in the course of 33 years as a pastor's wife. She was born in Seattle, Wash. and grew up in that city and on a farm in Stanwood, Wash. She and husband, Max, raised 3 children and ministered in churches in the United States, Nepal, and Canada. Susan has written poetry, articles, short stories, and now her first novel. The passion to write Jennifer's Journey came out of working with hurting families and wanting to encourage anyone desiring to befriend and help them.
WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING
"The book built up to the suspenseful ending when Len came home once again but this time with a vengeance for Jen! This was where it was difficult to stop reading when I had to get some things accomplished in my real life."
"Susan DeBeeson does a wonderful job of portraying the love and caring from friends, churches, and God that abused women need in order to heal from their childhood abuses, whether they are physical, emotional, or sexual abuses. She shows how a woman's heart must heal in order to break the chains of abuse and pain that are binding them. keeping them enslaved with a heart of unforgiveness, and holding them back from a fulfilling and rewarding life in Jesus Christ."--B.Garnett
"What an inspiring and captivating book from start to finish! Thank you, Susan DeBeeson!"
