Review of the book Silent Cry by Dorothy Newton

I really enjoyed this book. I read it all in 2 days. It is about a woman who is married to a football star who ends up being beaten emotionally, physically and spiritually. I really enjoyed the part of the book where her mom becomes a Jehovah's witness. That is what I am and so this is awesome! The daughter had trouble with it because of the house to house preaching, We don't believe that Jesus died on a cross but a stake, We do not believe when you die, you go to hell. You are just sleeping. We also do not believe in the trinity. Meaning we believe Jesus and God are two different people and that Jesus is God's son. We also do not celebrate holidays such as birthdays or Christmas. I also like the part in the book when she talked about scriptures and how people in the bible went through tough things but they always kept their faith in God and knew that he would rescue them out of whatever they had gotten into. Such as Silas and Paul who were in prison. They were badly beaten and had their feet shackled. They sang songs to God and worshiped him even in the middle of their horrible, seemingly hopeless situation. They did get her husbands opinion of the book after he got divorced from her and he said this " Whether you hit a woman once or you hit her fifty thousand times, there is no place in our makeup as a man that allows for us to ever do that. It's unacceptable; that's the bottom line. Any man who knows God understands that as a man, hitting a woman is never,ever,acceptable."
