For the Sake of Louise

Nonfiction by Lilia Lopez-Rahman.

For the Sake of Louise By Lilia B. Lopez-Rahman

I bought this book because the author came and spoke at our church. It is her personal story.

It is a good story about how she broke away from her abusive husband and how he kidnapped their child. The author is now a minister and an advocate for battered women.

However, I think it would have been better told in a different way. It didn't keep my attention as well as it should have, especially for a story such an exciting plot to begin with. So I think the problem was the writing style.

This may be just my anti-memoir prejucide working. I feel like it is often too difficult to be objective with your own story.
