loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great book!December 15, 2015loreallepaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book held onto me from the very beginning and wouldnt let me go. Being in an abusive dating relationship myself in the past, there were so many aspects I could relate to.
Dorothy grew up in an abusive home in the backwoods of Louisiana. She struggled to break out of the cycle of poverty and abuse, only to find herself out of the cycle of poverty, but stuck in a relationship that eerily mimics her mothers relationship with her abusive step-father.
The abuse she suffered at the hand of her husband was severe and extreme. She wanted to leave so many times, but was financially dependent on him. She also was afraid of what others would think. Her husband is famous and quite a charmer, she's sure the world would side with him.
Dorothy shares her experiences of pain, loss, survival, hope, recovery, and victory. A gripping story throughout, A Silent Cry is a testament to Dorothys 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

Trinity RoseOhioAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Silent CrySeptember 10, 2015Trinity RoseOhioAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Silent Cry by Dorothy J. Newton is an excellent book. An autobiography that tells of abuse that is mentally and physically. Dorothy tells about her childhood and how her father abused her mother and how Dorothy was never going to get into a relationship where abuse was.
Dorothy was/is a very intellect person. She stayed so very close to God, because He is the only one Dorothy could trust to not hurt her or leave her. Dorothy was the first one in her family to graduate college and become a woman who could support herself. She didnt want to end up like her mother staying in a relationship because she didnt have any money or anyone to go to, to get away from an abusive relationship.
Then Dorothy met Nate Newton famous superstar football player for the Dallas Cowboys. Things were fine for a while and Dorothy gave up her job and depended on Nate. Then he started abusing her and the cycle started all over again. In Silent Cry Dorothy tells about the things she went through and how she never would have made it if she didnt have the Lord in her life. Besides the physical, emotional abuse Dorothy put up with a cheating, lying husband and stood by him in all things.
She reported Nates behavior several times, but him being a superstar no one would believe her or take her side.
She stayed until she feared for her life and what it would do to their sons if she stayed. Read this book of incredible faith and how Dorothy made a new life for herself. She now helps other people in the same situation she was in. A very extraordinary book. Highly recommended.
