      Why would a hedonistic (Someone who believes in self-indulgence, debauchery and partying) marry a preacher? And if she is Hedonistic, what behavior in his part would shock her?

        I agree with Richiev.

        I’d like to think that she didn’t find love when she married this guy – surely she fell in love with him first and then decided to marry him?

        For us to appreciate how his unorthodox behaviour could make her have to fight for her life you need to be more specific about that side of the story. The discovery of this behaviour is the inciting incident that sets up her goal of trying to escape.

        Your second version is better simply because it gives us pretty much all of the information we need in half the word count. However it omits the information that makes us understand why this is the second time she has to free herself from a life of torment. Change that bit and check out the formula page for help with formatting and I don’t think this will be too far off. I would consider changing “hedonistic” though. I think it would be better to suggest that she’s had a difficult life and not by choice. Hedonism is a lifestyle choice. For her emotional story to be its strongest, she needs to think that she’s broken free of that lifestyle when she falls in love with this “stand up guy” only to have the world come crashing down when she makes the discovery (whatever that is).

        Hope this helps.

        Thanks so much for your professional input, both of you.  I will definitely work on your advice.  They do make more sense.  The first life of torment was in the orphanage.  I may be able to include that.

        engaged in the pursuit of pleasure; sensually self-indulgent. Is what the dictionary has as hedonistic. May be hard for a young girl growing up in an orphanage.

        of  course all these things would be after she came out of the orphanage at 18, however I re-wrote another one.  will post it over shortly.

        A broken young woman marries a respected deacon, who shortly after unleashes his manipulative; abusive traits.  Crippled by fear, she finally musters the courage to leave and find her own true spiritual identity.

        How about that?  I really need to include her brokenness since I’m no longer mentioning the orphanage  and the realization that she needs  to include not only her being abused but also her finding her own spiritual identity and not what she was manipulated to believe from her husband.

        I still feel however, that it is missing a twist just by using the word “leave.”

        Would love to hear from mikepedly85 also.

        Okay I do believe this is my final draft.  I noticed no one commented on the ones above,  hope this gets a feedback.  Thanks.

        A broken woman finds herself married to a highly respected deacon, but must now escape a life of abuse and ultimately find her own true spiritual identity.
