The tale of Mary Hope MacLaren is a story of hope. It is the story of a young woman’s hopes and dreams, shattered, as her new husband turns violent. It is the story of hope enduring over the years, but of hope renewed at his untimely death. Most of all, it is the tale of a woman’s fight back to who she had been before and of her renewed hope for the life she once wanted, dreamt of having.
