Christy R. Diachenko about this book: Nolle Prosequi by definition means to cease pursuit of prosecution. The strong parallel with forgiveness is obvious. But can domestic violence, one of the epidemics of our time, be forgiven? Countless women and men live through the unspeakable horrors of physical, verbal, emotional, and psychological abuse and those who escape and survive suffer lasting after effects.
While Nolle Prosequi is a work of fiction, the effects of domestic abuse are explored. Scenes and issues are depicted which occur every day in real life across our nation. However, Nolle Prosequi is also a message of hope. Through Lizzy Godfrey's story, the love and healing power of Jesus Christ is displayed. Lizzy learns that only God's grace can give her the ability to forgive her abuser and have lasting peace that transcends circumstances. God's healing is complete and enables Lizzy to use her experiences to help and instruct others. Lizzy Godfrey's story is one of defeat and victory, failure and accomplishment, and beauty through brokenness.
