“Diaries of a Traveling Renegade”: a striking autobiography of domestic abuse. “Diaries of a Traveling Renegade” is the creation of published author Mary Maurine Tucker, a mother and survivor of an abusive household growing up in a ranch in Oakland, Oregon.

Tucker writes, “I want to share my story of survival in hopes to give others courage. I had been seeing women being murdered almost daily by their husbands who later were found to be abusive. Lacey Peterson is one that comes to mind most frequently because her abuser killed not only her but their unborn child. This saddened me. I had left my abuser against all odds. Why could these women not leave before it escalated to this point? People had told me I should write a book, tell my story. God told me it was time to write. If I could overcome abuse from childhood, sexual molestation, and spousal abuse, why was it so hard for them? I had help, the Lord was there for me every time I called to him, and many times I did not. Telling me what to do. The Holy Spirit was with me through the writing of this book, I was just his vessel.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Mary Maurine Tucker’s new book is a bold attempt to make sense of a difficult past, allowing the author to emerge a stronger, wiser woman for it.

Tucker draws in the reader with her honesty and empathy, encouraging readers in similar situations to turn to God, cast away their role as silent victim, and step out as a crusading survivor.
