Jones is a wife, mother, and grandmother. Shelley is also a survivor of childhood sexual and spiritual abuse. After fourteen years of marriage, Shelley found herself on the brink of an emotional breakdown. Hidden beneath her anger, depression, and exhaustion were long forgotten moments of sexual abuse and spiritual unworthiness. Her husband, William, was the man in the house, the man in the bed - the undeserving target of her rage in the present. Throughout the recovery process, Shelley desperately wanted William to see beneath her anger, to understand what she struggled to comprehend, and to love her when she felt her life held little value. William longed to see her emotionally and sexuallyhealthy. But his efforts triggered just the opposite - her emotional fury. Tensions, misunderstandings, and resentments created an ever-widening barrier between them. Yet their marriage not only survived, it thrives.
