Video Highlight: Beth Keeping - Dodged a Bullet. A both powerful and captivating song and story shared

Held captive in a dark, remote place by a vengeful lover that's certainly when the picture-perfect vision of a relationship had (whether it actually was as sweet and sincere as recalled or not) turns into a daunting nightmare.
