Why we do things and why we accept others, is not the point. We can argue that she should have just left. But how do we know what goes on in the minds and hearts of others? A good story.
Mitchell told the story with simplicity and clarity. A sad story of abuse, decisions, survival and victory with redemption.
I enjoyed this story to its fullest. While most people can not understand the action of an abuser, or the abused, and why they stay together. This story will let you peek inside that world, and give you a better understanding of the struggles which some people must endure. The more I read, the more I felt I was reading this young woman's journal. Such detail was conveyed by the author, that it leaves you thinking she had an insight into Emma's world. This is an enriching read, and if you know of anyone living with domestic abuse, recommend them to read this book.
Thank you Ms Mitchell for this dramatic story of one families struggle. I will be looking for more novels by this author.
Mrs Mitchell tells her story in a way that makes you feel like you are living in her experiences . I feel it portrays Emma as a young woman captured by the experienced manipulating man who made her feel special at first, even tho she knew he was not the kind gentle person she wanted.
Emma Thought Aaron loved her enough that he would change for her and later for their children. As with most of this type love, Aaron didn't have the ability to do so. Unfortunately he leard early in lfe to lie and abuse the one who loved you for his personal gain.
I think Emma felt she really had no choice to leave Aaron for fear of abuse she would receive if she did, and the fear of living life without him was unbearable for her. This was the life she became familiar with, in a way comfortable with. Emma probably never realized she was hurting her children by loving this abusive man, she was trying to keep her family, beside if she wasn't with him what would happen to him? A very confusing existance. I feel sure it was not until he was no longer allowed to live near her that realized she and their children were better off without him and could finally be at peace.
I loved the flow of Mrs Mitchell's stories and look forward to more of them. She is captivating in her writing skills.
Love is a beautiful thing. The innocence of high school love is the stuff of romance. When high school sweethearts bond and marry everyone is thrilled and excited. But, sadly to say, many of these marriages of high school sweethearts go awry...many switch from bliss to nightmare. Even in situations like this there is hope; a hope that transcends our understanding at times but still there. In `Unheard Cries - A Marriage Horror' we see, first hand, the violence of a bad marriage and the rise of hope from that bleak shadow.
`Unheard Cries - A Marriage Horror,' is the account of Emma and Aaron. Emma, the sweet girl with a mild wild side and Aaron, the black sheep of his family with a hot temper were destined for marriage as they were never apart in high school. But not everyone is thrilled about their relationship as Emma's parents are well aware of Aaron's temper and rebel attitude. Emma is fully aware of who Aaron is and feels that she can change him. As the years pass Aaron becomes more violent toward her and their children. Will Aaron change? What will happen to Emma and her children? What will it take to stop the horror of this dysfunctional marriage?
From the first word, Joyce Mitchell delivers a story packed full of emotion and passion. `Unheard Cries - A Marriage Horror' will pull your heart strings as you relate and connect to the mistakes and triumphs of Emma and her family. Even Aaron, as he ages, is a character that will hold your attention as you hope for real change in him. With each passing page, it is virtually impossible not to feel remorse, anger, sadness, doubt, hope, and relief.Read more ›
