A Search for Purple Cows

A wife and mother's amazing journey from darkness into a life fully restored in God's light.
A whimsical comment from a kind stranger, 'Be sure to search for purple cows,' brings hope to a woman and her children fleeing from a life filled with trouble. In A Search for Purple Cows, Susan Call reveals to the world how painful a relationship can be when love deteriorates into a cycle of abuse and betrayal. Her moving memoir chronicles how she first met her husband, a handsome, stylish, generous man with whom she worked. Eventually they fell in love, married, and had two children. Their life seemed idyllic -- they had a beautiful home and everything a family could desire. But soon, inside those walls, Call was tormented by her husband's alcoholism, domestic abuse, and infidelity that cast her family into a world fraught with fear and despair. God found her in the midst of her pain, and showed her, through the unlikely source of a Christian radio station, that a journey toward Him was possible even in the most unthinkable circumstances. Call eventually found the strength to move on and start anew. Written with candor and grace, A Search for Purple Cows will leave you laughing, crying, and believing that God is present and able, ready to bring hope and healing.

Susan Call has written a great tool that can encourage women all over how to break the cycle of domestic abuse.  One thing people don't realize, that she has brought out into the open, is that abuse isn't always physical.  The mental and emotional abuse is hard for people on the outside to see.   I applaud Ms. Call on what she has written.

I also appreciate the fact that she leans on her faith in this book, and I hope that others in her situation will do the same.
