"Is Silence Golden?"
on March 27, 2014
After reading some of the other reviews, and reading the book myself I am convinced this is a true story. Mental Illness is no joking matter, and wouldn't that be nice if everyone could be a Psychologist before getting involved. Knowing a little about why women gravitate toward men much like their fathers, and the book very much explained her upbringing, as well as his. The author has no reason to fabricate or intensify her story, especially at the expense of all of those she is trying to help. If one steps back and sees the reality or scope of this very horrible social issue, then you will see the truth within this book. Schizophrenia is real and the results can be devastating. One must ask themselves when reading this book, have I ever experienced domestic violence, of any kind? Have I ever been witness to someone that has been abused, and turned a blind eye, blaming the person who wears the scars? I believe people who think this book is fabricated, are also those who turn a blind eye to those who are in trouble...it's easier and safer for human nature to protect the ones doing the abuse, rather than support and intervene for those it's being done to. This book is an excellent read and is a wake up call for anyone who has, is or may experience this ungodly situation. I sincerely hope and pray for the best to the author, and applaud her will to finally live. Awesome read, from an educational standpoint, and not at the authors expense. I believe she has already paid for what she didn't owe. This is movie material!
