Allison Hong Merrill Is The Only One Who’s Husband Left Her In Under Two Hours The Only One In The Room

    • Personal Journals

Imagine if as a kid you were chased by your parent with a butcher knife, and instead of intervening, all the other adults just sat around and watched. 
Author, Allison Hong Merrill grew up in Taiwan and never felt secure in her home until Mormon missionaries arrived, so she married one, and against her father’s wishes, moved back to Texas with him, thinking he was her knight in shining armor.
But what would you do if after moving to a place where you didn’t know a soul and didn’t speak the language, you came home to find your husband had cleaned out both your apartment and your bank accounts? Would you return to Taiwan and beg your father’s forgiveness? Or would you find a way to not only survive but thrive in this new strange land?
