An Intense, Emotional Journey
Charlene believes she's an ordinary housewife and mother with ordinary challenges. Gradually, she comes to realize her marriage isn't healthy and that her husband's treatment isn't normal. Relying only on her own courage and the help of a few friends, she struggles to free herself and her children from a relationship that has turned their lives into a living nightmare.
Charlene soon discovers that altering her relationship is only half the battle and finding what she really needs takes just as much courage as recognizing the problem in the first place. Trusting again--and making love work--may be the biggest challenge of all.
"This novel is fascinating. I couldn't stop reading! I had to find out if Charlene would get free and if she could love again."
--Maria Anderson, reader and editor
"Silent Cries is an authentic and true-to-life depiction of one woman's exodus from a life of psychological and physical servitude to one of empowerment and self-determination. This story captures the persistence and fortitude required to exit a life with an abuser without sacrificing gentleness and wisdom."
