See this is not fiction. It is the truth. It is the story of the emotional make-up of a woman using the analogy of a car. Here is how this came about.
My friend left her husband due to alcohol abuse. One day she found an opportunity to leave during an unusual occasion when he was away from the house. I helped her leave town. We haven't communicated often since she left, but I do know she is doing well.
Now her husband is very sorry for his behavior and wants her to come home. He has asked me to intervene on his behalf.
