Not So Far Away

I received a copy of Not So Far Away by Deborah Pierson Dill from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Laurel Kerr lives each day fearing it could be her last. Years of pleading with God for deliverance from her husband’s deadly temper have convinced her that she’s beneath the Lord’s notice. Still, she perseveres, hoping that a redeemed husband and a Christ-centered marriage might one day be possible. Dr. Boyd Wendall has a soft spot for Laurel. Although she’s not his to take care of, she stirs his protective instincts. Time and again he finds himself in the midst of her trouble, and he can’t help but believe there’s a reason for it. When Laurel’s deliverance comes suddenly and unexpectedly, it raises questions about Boyd’s integrity, reopens wounds from his past, and leads to a trial the two cannot escape. Apart, they are just one man and one woman facing tribulation. Together, they’ll discover that God is not so far away.
This book was hard to read at times, but ended great.  Laurel is in an abusive marriage with two sons.  She protects her boys as best she can.  Many times this has put her in the hospital.  The last time was the last straw for her and her boys.  Do they have the strength to make a better life for themselves when every and everyone is against them?
