Silent Cry The True Story of Abuse and Betrayal of an NFL Wife By Dorothy J. Newton Review
Raised near New Orleans as one of six children, Dorothy Newton was surrounded by abuse and poverty as she grew up. But she became the first in her family to graduate from college and moved out of poverty. She then began to live out her dreams in Dallas of a better home and life when she married celebrity superstar football player Nate Newton. She had gone from poverty to the pinnacle of success. She was married to a handsome, successful, famous professional athlete, who was a three time Super Bowl Champion and six time Pro-Bowler for the Dallas Cowboys.
But all that glittered was not gold.
Before long the relationship turned abusive. She found herself living in the world she thought she had escaped in her years growing up. The world did not see her suffering behind closed doors—she was betrayed, treated abusively, threatened continually. Dorothy was trapped with no one to talk to and nowhere to run. In this book Dorothy shares her experiences of pain, loss, survival, hope, recovery, and victory. A gripping story throughout, Silent Cry is a testament to Dorothy’s will to live and the peace that comes with hope in the God who sees and hears your tears—even when no one else does.
I received a complimentary copy of this book.
Cassandra's Review- First I would like to give my own advice, if you are in an abusive relationship, LEAVE. Do not try to fix or pretend just be strong and even men can get abused so just get out. As far as the book while it always hurts my heart to hear of this kind of story and I do sympathize with the author I feel the hell that was created is a two way street and if you're an adult and can not get to anywhere unless you're actually physically restrained sadly this is your fate. I know some will find this offensive and have a million excuses, but I have personally dealt with this on more than one occasion and speak from experience.
