You are 28-years-old, you have faith, prayed, went to different night vigil, you read all kind of books on relationship, you attended church and other churches (singles and married seminars) all because you are running out of time. The marriage clock is walking out on you; your mum keeps asking you who the guy is, your younger sister is waiting for you because her man is ready.

Finally, the man of your dream walked into your life, he has everything you want in a man, you also discovered that this guy is a worker in the house of God and has a good job. The date of your marriage is set, you got married to him and the days of your lonely nights are gone, you have somebody you can talk to and share your moments of joy and pain with.

Half way into your marriage, this thing showed up as you discover that the man you are married to enjoys hitting your face with any slight provocation. The story of Sarah and Nathan in the novel ‘VICTIM’ by Darren Moxam showed how a woman is fighting angry while pain of the beating from her beloved human is drying up the seed of love in her home.

With tears on her face, Sarah said “I want you to stop hitting me. That’s what I want! Can you do that for me, Nathan? Can you really do that?” the author Darren spells out her words “I am in pain… a part of me wants to run away. A part of me wants out of this marriage. Still, the other side of me wants to see it through until death do us part, but tonight I feel confused and lonely even though my husband is beside me."

The novel VICTIM made me shed tears from my spirit; I wonder how many homes are at this stage, my wish is for this novel to get to every home all over the world. Whatever challenges you might be facing in your home, know that you are not in it alone, the author of this master piece will help you find comfort as you read this power series of VICTIM.

The book is available on www.amazon.com
