If abuse were defined only as physical abuse, then this book does not qualify. But, in the broad sense of the word and its reality, verbal and emotional abuse is an insidious disease that eats at the hearts of the victim.
Not one to want a label, Salma refuses to accept that her husband is one such man, a cruel, unkind partner who tears her down at every opportunity to make himself feel better. Life teaches her. Her children bless her. In her new job she learns of love and caring without the need for abuse.
A journey of growth and freedom from oppression. This is the story of a woman who loved her husband blinding herself to his reality. As her life evolves and she needs to take care of her children, she grows out of it and removes the rose colored glasses to see him as he really is.
A good book that will make you smile, cry and get frustrated at times. This is the book for women who need courage and hope without the man on the white horse saving them.
