Jenna Bouvier is a young woman intimidated and controlled by her abusive mother-in-law who has a very selfish agenda. Jenna is constantly told what to do, what to think, and how to act. Mrs. Bouvier senior demands total control over her son Gerard and her daughter-in-law.
Searching for an outlet for her personal thoughts and her faith, Jenna begins anonymously blogging about her life and her faith. She soon finds a substantial number of followers who eagerly look for more blog updates. One of her regular blog visitors is someone Jenna knows personally, and she does what she can to protect her friend's trust and respect, while at the same time keeping her own identity hidden.
Through some drastic changes that happen in the family, Jenna finds herself even more under the control of her mother-in-law and she has to make some life-changing choices or lose everything that she holds dear.
