Book Description

“How was I so naive to let him into our lives?”

An emotional, heart-breaking true story of domestic violence, child abuse and animal cruelty.
The horrific story from the mother’s perspective, how she was fooled into loving a man who had a darkness lurking deep inside waiting to be unleashed. The violent abuse a mother suffered to protect her children.

She loved her children more than anything and blamed herself for his unimaginable behaviour. The regret, fear and heartache was too much to bear…

“Enough was enough.” But all goes horribly wrong when she tries run away with both her sons one night.

A mother’s resilience to such a dreadful and violent husband.

An incredible true story.

Horrifying neglect.

“This story was even more tragic and emotional than the first two stories combined. I particularly felt emotional when reading the paragraph about the mother tending to the beaten, frightened dog. Tears filled my eyes. A brilliant story I highly recommend.” – Jo Johns Author.

From mothers point. Frighteningly horrific for a woman trapped in this kind of relationship unable to help her children. Escape plans have to be made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational 23 May 2014
By joy

This was a truly inspirational read, as a mother I felt the true horror of such horrendous abuse and domestic violence. Scott B Salvatore is a role model to be writing such stories that can help others and show that abuse sufferers are not alone and they don’t have to put up with the neglect. The way the mother would lie in bed, battling against her conscience not knowing what to do was surreal and managed to bring these events to life and made me think about how I would have felt. A must read, highly recommended, brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute to many mothers 21 May 2014
By Andy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is an inspired insight into that so misunderstood mystery about what causes/allows abuse to go on and on. Who can mindlessly continue to blame mothers after reading this moving true account, especially knowing that it was not written by one? The depth of understanding is certainly rich and touching and challenges how the authorities should respond to cries for help.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 18 May 2014

An incredible read that kept me in suspense and I fully enjoyed it. It's unbelievable to think that anyone could treat a wife and children with such cruelty and neglect.

From the first sentence I was hooked, a brilliantly descriptive and emotional book that I felt compelled to finish in one sitting. I would highly recommend anyone to read it as the story allows insight into such awful abuse.

A must buy especially for only 99p

I couldn't put this story down; traumatic abuse, heartbreaking neglect and unimaginable cruelty. This brilliantly told the story of what the mother had been through and the impossible decisions she had to make as a mother to protect her sons. I felt the weight of what she had to endure. Equally a sufferer of a violent, narcissistic and sadistic husband I sympathise greatly. Anybody can read this story and feel the range of emotions Salvatore conveys through his writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply brilliant. 18 May 2014
By Nicole
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was an incredible story from the mother's perspective, exceptionally emotional and heart-breaking. This had me on the edge of my seat, kept me in suspense and brought tears to my eyes. I would highly recommend this to all readers, especially those who want to read a gripping story about abuse, domestic violence and animal cruelty. I also thought this cleverly weaved in around the first two stories, showing the events through another family member's eyes. Simply brilliant.
