Item description for Dead Women Walking: Entangled in Addiction, Abuse and Idol Worship, These Women Seemed Beyond Hope . . . by Jennifer Su...

Overview
A shocking and inspiring true story of three desperate women trapped by the spirits they worshipped, and the hope that God brought to them. Mei Chen has spent her life running from addiction, from violence, and now from the spirits. With all hope beaten out of her, shackled to the painful memories of her past, Mei was on the verge of suicide. Dead Women Walking tells the true stories of Mei, Ling, and Yufen, three women whose lives were ruled by the spirits they worshipped. Overtaken by misfortune and disaster, they were entangled by broken relationships and wounded emotions - until they discovered that escape was possible with the help of God. Jennifer Su presents a startling real picture of the Taiwanese working class that shows no situation is beyond the reach of God's grace.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dead Women Walking: Entangled in Addiction, Abuse and Idol Worship, These Women Seemed Beyond Hope . . .?

A great novel as good as Joy Luck Club  Feb 7, 2008
Jennifer Su has a journalism degree from the Northwest University. All stories and persons are real. However, Su is such a good author that you may enjoy DWW just like reading a novel. One critic, that she makes all Taiwanese men, count me one, look bad.
 
Incomprehensible Truth  Jan 29, 2008
The weaving of three women's true stories was a captivating read. Each story held me riveted to the many pages until I read the last word of the book. Creating a legend of important details of each life will help the reader keep each woman's story straight.

As stated in the title, "these women seemed beyond hope," BUT.... for a power stronger than addictions and idol worship to reach down into these tangled lives...a must read!

Know that these women live. Their stories are true. The author has lived among them, getting to know them well. The book could be labeled a documentary of hope.
 
Powerful and Heart-wrenching.  Jan 25, 2008
As someone who has been living and working in Taiwan for almost 20 years I wish this book had been written 20 years ago. It has given me a fresh understanding of the lives and struggles of many people around me. A Taiwanese Canadian friend who recently read Dead Women Walking wrote to me saying, "Reading the stories, I started relating to a lot of the social issues found in Taiwanese families." The stories related in DWW are real stories about real people, presented powerfully with often heart-wrenching honesty. Eye-opening, challenging, and highly recommended!
 
Ancient to Modern... Taiwan  Jan 21, 2008
It's an engaging story that shows the challenges of Taiwan when the ancient meets the modern. The traditions of idol worship pervade the stories, leading to addictions, drug abuse, spousal abuse and all sorts of problems. Combine that with a modern, developing society and you have a unreached mission field. This book is well written and will challenge you to consider praying for and evening going to Taiwan. A must read!!!
