Overview Rainbow, according to the American Heritage Dictionary, means: "An arc of color appearing opposite the sun as a result of the sunlight in rain or mist." God used a rainbow as a covenant with Noah after the flood destroyed the earth. Ms. Schiager was aware of her daughter Christina's eating problem and had done everything she knew to do to help. She prayed for God to use whatever method necessary to show Christina her need for help. God answered this prayer far differently than she had ever imagined. During the year that followed, information came to light that changed every life in this family forever. Ms. Schiager writes of the devastating realities that came to light, how the Lord brought her through it victoriously, how her relationship with Christ deepened through it all, and how she learned to trust God's will in everything. She tells about many answered prayers and blessings that she experienced through it all. She describes it this way: "This past year has definitely been the stormiest in my life, but there were so many rainbows, I was compelled to share them. My rainbows are a result of the Son's presence in my life during the storms."

I too come from an abusive situation with my step-father. It took me 27 years to realize that myself and my mother were also the abusers. I say this because of the lack of family structure in my home led me to cling to my father for love. My mother allowed me to sleep at the end of their bed when I was a teenager, dinner was never cooked by my mother due to being involved in the church and other activites, my mother would go to bed when relatives would come by and watch movies in her room, I would sit on my fathers lap and cuddle..looking for attention and love. By all means my father was not perfect. But I see how things led to his behaviours. So..I can totally relate to the young girl in this book and hope the family forgives each other for the abuse they did do each other. I am glad that my family was able to see how each of our actions created the situation and I use this experience to help others. Hopefully the same will occur for this family to continue in the life that God has intended for us...complete forgiveness and understanding. It seems like this will happen due to the authors strong religious beliefs. Scriptures quoted in the book need to be practiced by the mother and daughter. Both need to look inside themselves and truly ask..how much of this did I truly contribute towards....and only then will the true "Rainbow" come to light.
Hope for Moms Jan 3, 2003
This book is a true story of the author's struggle through finding out about the sexual abuse of her daughter by her husband. She candidly and sensitively shares her pain and how God upheld her through the ordeal. Most books on the subject of sexual abuse do not offer much for the mom/wife, the person caught in the middle between the two people they love the most in the world. This is one of the first written from that perspective. It offers hope and encouragement to moms in this or similar situations.
