Overview

During the past 56 years Mary has either witnessed, been part of, or has been on the receiving end of abuse. Many of us experience abuse at one way or another in their lifetime. In fact, some have become co-dependent during the abuse period for fear of their life. Others have died and left this type of environment and are still is the process of healing. Abuse happens at various levels. The key is to recognize it and act on it no matter what happens.

As many of us were growing up we have learned through the test of time that abuse of any kind is wrong and should not be tolerated. "No Man or Woman should be a victim or an abuser." "Everyone should be treated equally." The Bible teaches that; "We should treat others as we would want to be treated."

What you are about to read talks about psychical, psychological, verbal, and emotional abuse at various levels. Some of the stories discussed are long term, experienced, and others were witnessed. There even are times when the parties involved became active participants and become abusers themselves.

Many of us grew up believing that woman should be subordinate to men. The Bible also teaches this idea. The difference is there are no teachings that teach about it being okay to abuse one another.

The Bible does teach us to; "Love our neighbor as ourselves."

    I felt that the author put a lot out there telling her story. To many of us go through the abuse that is talked about in this book and don't realize that there could be other problems like mental illness going on. Some early signs of medical problems as diabetes , Alzheimer's, and Dementia could be responsible for some of the thoughts that trigger abuse. I wish that the author would have addressed some of these since she has a medical background. I also believe that the author took some time and had compassion to tell this story especially that first chapter which could be any of us. Her spelling, language, and her grammar was okay. I would recommend this book to my friends.
