Beyond the TEARS: Receives 5 Star Review
I found Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story by Lynn C. Tolson difficult to put down. I read it in three nights because the subject material required time-offs for my mind to absorb everything that was written. People who have never been abused can't realize how the different types of abuse can maim a person. In Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story the reader is pulled from one emotional crisis into a sordid world of emotional, physical and mental abuse. It didn't seem so at the time, but the protagonist suffered greatly from her parents, brother, husband and relatives lack of understanding on treating the narrator as a piece of filth or something to throw away once done with it.
Beyond the Tears: A True Survivor's Story is provocative and compelling. It's not a book to read lightly, but a book to spend time with so that you can identify with the narrator and feel the abusive battery that she survives. I give Beyond the Tears a 5 star rating. If I could give Ms. Lynn Tolson a 10 star rating, I would have done so. It's a must-read for anyone who's been involved with abusive behavior.
