Alison's Journey: Book Review
"The dedication in this book is a work of poetry in itself. I had a distinct recollection of 'Sleeping with the Enemy' when reading this book, but this story has some very unique twists and turns. The characters seemed very real to me - I live in a small town and we are just like that!
Here, we are shown the psychological cycle of the victim of domestic violence (Alison) and her growing awareness that some things can change for the better, trust can be had and given, and faith in inner strength can grow.
Like many who crawl out of hellish conditions, Alison did not do it on her strength alone, but through a few strong, giving individuals who contributed a gesture or a friendship along the way. Yet, most healing of all is to find a new, healthy love and good, solid relationships with others - a most difficult thing for victims of abuse to do. If it was the author's intent to use the main character to bring depth and understanding into what people go through in situations like these, then she accomplished this goal admirably!
Readers are shown how being rich, good looking and well-educated - having all the benefits one could desire - cannot lead to happiness. Mr. Bruce Cockburn says it best in a song of his which says 'though chains be of gold, they are chains just the same'.
Amey Tippett has accomplished a work of art with this book. I really felt like I was right there watching the children play during the festivals and feeling the pain and fright of impending danger, and endured the hellish nightmares along with Alison.
This was a fantastic read and I would not hesitate to recommend Alison's Journey."
