Before I even start... I want to say Read the TWs first. There are a few, and for good reason!  I've spent a day trying to put my words into a review, but there is just so much. So, here's what I will say. 

My Last Hope is a heart-wrenching tale about Abby's journey, where she learns to heal after years of abuse from a man who she thought was her best friend. Like most Domestic Violence, she kept hoping her husband would change. He never did. After finally taking all she could, Abby caused an accident, which left her with some new trauma to overcome. 

All in all, it was an amazing story. Richard did not pull punches when it came to telling the perfect story of overcoming trauma and abuse.
