This is a true story comprised of a series of emails between me and a man in Belfast, N Ireland, and how Harry encouraged me to write about the 10 years I was married to an abusive man that nearly destroyed me. Alcohol turned my husband from a loving husband and father that I compared to a Dr. Jekyll figure, whom I loved, into the Mr. Hyde that I feared and couldn't protect myself and my children from until he destroyed every bit of the love I had for him. Before that happened, I was emotionally destroyed until I doubted my own self-worth and self-confidence. Finally, I knew the next time Mr. Hyde appeared, he would kill me. It took my love for my four children that gave me the strength and courage to lift myself up by my own bootstraps, with four loving rocks tied around my neck, to finally break free and make a new life for my children and myself.

Hi Harry based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
This book is an outstanding read. It captivated me from page one and drew me into the writers story. I could feel her love for her children, her love for her husband and eventually her will to survive. Hi Harry is a must read, not only for battered women, but for any woman who has loved with all her heart and then had it torn out of their chest. The Author, Judy Newton, is a survivor, to say the least. She has pulled herself out of a living hell and regained her dignity, self esteem, confidence and a future for her and her children. I hop this book brings courage to any woman out there who can't see there is hope and a future, and that she finds the same strength as the author did in this book.
Could not put the book down. Very well written. Hope there is a sequel.
