what a sad story... I feel her pain.

Wow! That's a situation I don't understand but thank God that He does!
Dramatically and realistically told! Many women, all too sadly, can relate to this story.

I liked the contrast between God's love which was enduring and uplifting, and the man's "love" for his wife which was so destructive. Well written.

I like the way your story begins and ends in the same place. (Watch use of it's / its). Well-written.
You've captured the mood well and written a well-constructed piece on such a difficult subject. The short length of the entry made it even more poignant. A longer piece would have been too depressing. And you tied it in nicely with God's perfect love. Keep writing. Thank you.

How very sad, yet how beautifully written. It really sums up the idea of 'retreat'.

Yes, it eflected the theme exceptionally well, but I'd have much rathered her running away to a more permanent place of comfort and safety.
Painful and too, too real. I liked your intro there in the woods, the retreat spot, and then the flash-back to the horrible scene. Very effective.

Short, poignant and sad.
