Sara's Uncle Robert was the main catalyst who shaped her heart and mind. Raised by her Uncle Robert and Aunt Molly who invested love and time to making sure Sara had a good sense of worth of herself.
Sara shows that even though you feel a marriage under God is supposed to last a lifetime, that no one has to live with or accept abuse from their spouse. Incredibly brave woman! She substantiates that "we" are all worthy of love and do not have to take abuse in any form from anyone, the least of which is a spouse or parent.
I hope Sara realizes how she has touched and will continue to through those who read her book!!
I applaud the author for sharing her experience and even more for removing her children from such a negative environment.
The writing itself isn't terrible, considering the author's lack of education. She attempts imagery, trying too hard at times, but she knows what she needs to do. This falls to the wayside after the first few chapters, which isn't such a bad thing.
I'm only half-way through at this point, so I don't know how it ends, but wanted to post my review as many reviewers aren't as honest as I tend to be and they don't mention the books weaknesses.Ihaven't looked at the publisher for this book but it's apparent by the errors in it that it's self-published.
Many indie books have editing issues, & this one is no different. The author dropped out of school to get married, and it shows in the run-on sentences, & improper use of punctuation that has made the reading slow for me. I find myself pausing constantly as I try to figure out what she is trying to say, when a properly placed comma, period, sentence or paragraph break would have made all the difference.
I do want to encourage the author to seek out an editor, & to run a spell check. I noticed several 'made up' words, as well as some that should have been 2 words, written as one (such as baldhead, which should be bald head); several written as 2 that should be one (Viet Nam, and some one should be Vietnam & someone).
The author DOES do a fairly good job of showing how & why abused women stay with abusive partners, & was very brave to write about it, but just because the book is LONG doesn't make it worth $10. Most professionally edited & published books by established authors aren't even priced that high & they don't have the grammar, spelling & punctuation issues this one has.
I would suggest the author re-publish after having it edited & reduce the price by at least half.
Sara Niles was attached to a perpetual yo-yo in a love him/leave him marriage for too many years. A lot of people may never be able to understand the psyche involved in such a relationship, but this book may shed some light on that issue for them. I could relate to her life in so many ways but not from the same view she had while living it. The emotions triggered in me while reading this book were more in line with what Sara's children most certainly experienced by witnessing the abuse she suffered at the hand of their father. That brings me to why I really admire Josephine Thompson.
Josephine/Sara not only had the wisdom to seek professional help for herself, but she realized the collateral damage, the pain and suffering carried by her children, and sought help for them too. In her own words, "Everyone focused their energy on debriefing me and no one thought of debriefing the children." Sara Niles jumped into educating herself in psychology to the point that when she couldn't take classes fast enough she researched independently in order to gain the skills needed to heal herself and her children. Thank you for for that revelation, Dear Sara, a lot of people never have it.
You have written a powerful, insightful book, Sara Niles. I would like to say to you, "Do it again."
