Through this book, I learned a lot about the Southern culture, back in my grandmother’s day. Being raised in a big, extended family was definitely the norm until education or marriage took them someplace else.
Essie Mae was a devoted wife and mother to a very abusive man, who was later drafted to serve in war. The person that returned home was worse than the one that left, but they it all…she stayed. Her family and friends witnessed the bruises, and many (including her parents) encouraged her to stay and try to work it out. If not for her…than for their three daughters.
I really enjoyed this rainy this book, because it was very personal to me. I never dealt with someone who was suffering with PTSD, but I have survived an abusive relationship. I would encourage anyone who is currently going through, have experienced, or knows of someone who is a victim of domestic violence, first seek help…then read this book.
Kudos to the author for sharing her story with us! Women need to know that there is life on the other side. For that reason, I give the book 💎💎💎💎💎.
