Loser. Thug. Abuser. Stupid. Worthless.
Insults play on repeat in The Husband's brain. He has been bullied and abused. An affair by The Wife, the one person The Husband loved the most, leaves him standing in a dark basement with a homemade noose around his neck.
As The Husband struggles silently through the anguish of betrayal and divorce, he turns inward to face a host of past tormentors and confront The Creator. One way or another, The Boy inside him will stop the pain.
This honest, vulnerable memoir will reshape our discussion of the victims of divorce and mental illness.

The Husband Is a heart wrenching story. It takes you on the journey of the husband and the wife's life. The husband has mental problems and you cannot really blame him after all he has been through. The wife is very manipulative. The author reels you in emotionally and you go on the ride and at times it is really rough. The story is realistic, too many marriages today are like this - how? Well that is something you have to find out for yourself. I received a copy of this book from the Publisher and Netgalley; all of the opinions expressed in this review are all my own. if you would like to read more of my Christian book reviews go to christianlybookreviewers.blogspot.com
This is a book that is hard to put down! The author has a writing style and layout that makes it easy to say, "just one more chapter"..."just one more chapter..." The story unfolds in a way that keeps the intrigue, and although it is written about some heavy topics, the message of hope is still very present. Highly recommend this book. After reading, I bought myself one more copy to be able to share one and keep the other. *Thumbs up*
Real, raw and brutally honest, The Husband is an unflinching look at one man’s struggle with mental illness. Aaron Daniel Behr is one of those rare Christian authors who dares to explore the depths of depression while still clinging to hope in the end.
