By the second paragraph of Beyond the Tears, I was transported into the mind of a young woman bent on suicide and traveled with her through her suicide attempt, discovery, revival in a cold hospital room and transfer to a psyche ward. This was just in the first chapter.
The remainder of my night was shot as I stayed awake, reading each page as quickly as possible so that I might know this woman was okay. That she recovered. That she escaped her abuser and survived.
Intense doesn't begin to describe Beyond the Tears. This writer's true story reads like a best-selling thriller - but it's not fiction. It's Tolson's nightmare that begins the story and her victorious survival that ends it.
Peopled with characters we all know in our own lives, Tolson brings her own cast alive with crisp dialogue and action - oftentimes breathtaking with brutal honesty. Tolson's abuse cycle started as a child and continued through her marriage. The pages turn on their own as this compelling true story shows the cycle of abuse, the mindset of the victim, the actions of the abuser, the betrayal of relatives and friends and finally, the first steps toward healing.
As I suspected when reading Tolson's story, her true calling was to be a writer, which she revealed in a subsequent interview. She is now working on her second survival story - this time she has survived breast cancer.
Beyond the Tears is critical reading for victims of abuse.Read more ›

|Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story: why read this memoir||
just bought this book on Kindle and 3/4's finished. I'm so amazed at your strength Lynn, and when I tell many people about reading it, I don't get a comment. I think that sexual abuse is shunned way too much and should be acknowledged by people. I don't know how during the holidays to have a meal... Read More

|Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story: on writing a memoir||
It's funny that you mention listening to music Lynn. I listen to the music I have on ITunes when I write. It just seems so natural to have it on, makes my creative juices flow.
