Today’s challenge had me running through my goodreads shelves to see if I could find something that would fit! I think I’ve found a good one though 🙂
I read Black and Blue way back when I was still in high school. It’s the story of a woman on the run with her son from an abusive husband who happens to be a COP. I remember thinking even when I read it that the cover didn’t make sense for the story. For one, it’s called “Black and Blue” but the cover is green. Her son is also older in the story than the little one on the woman’s shoulders. I’ll share the book description from Goodreads so you can understand more what I’m talking about. Cover aside though, the story itself is wonderfully written. It’s not Christian but it’s still a great read.
About the Book:
For eighteen years, Fran Benedetto kept her secret. And hid her bruises. And stayed with Bobby because she wanted her son to have a father. And because, in spite of everything, she loved him. Then one night, when she saw the look on her ten-year-old son’s face, Fran finally made a choice–and ran for both their lives.
Now she is starting over in a city far from home, far from Bobby. And in this place she uses a name that isn’t hers, and cradles her son in her arms, and tries to forget. For the woman who now calls herself Beth, every day is a chance to heal, to put together the pieces of her shattered self. And every day she waits for Bobby to catch up to her. Because Bobby always said he would never let her go. And despite the flawlessness of her escape, Fran Benedetto is certain of one thing: It is only a matter of time…
