Publisher's Description

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, A 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.

Editorial Reviews

Here are the words I would use to describe my dear friend Dorothy Newton: courageous, strong, beautiful, and Christ-honoring. She bravely tells her story of abuse to encourage others that even in the midst of heartbreak and pain, God is faithful. You can survive brokenness, and the key is knowing the One who was broken and bruised for all mankind---Jesus.
We applaud Dorothy for bearing her soul in this book. It is a moving and emotional account of a difficult journey and her unyielding devotion to God and family.
We’ve been friends with Dorothy Newton for years and have long admired her strength and courage. She’s a devoted mother who after her divorce brought that family together and held them so tightly that nothing could have ever torn them apart. It was incredibly touching and inspiring to watch. She is also one of the most spiritual people we’ve ever met, something she leaned on for strength during the trials of her marriage. She has a lifetime of wisdom to impart, and the simple, straightforward way she does so here makes every page an inspiration. It’s a book filled with love, perseverance, and proof that in America, second acts aren’t only for men; women have some pretty remarkable ones as well.
It is a privilege to call Dorothy Newton friend. Her life is an inspiring example of a courageous woman of God who values faith, family, and friends as our ultimate early treasures. She shares her past and present experiences with others in the hope that they too can celebrate life in abundance now and forever.
My friend Dorothy Newton will become your friend as she graciously takes you into her world---into the celebrity lifestyle and the shadowy recesses where abuse dominated and destroyed her dream world. She shares mistakes and victories. She contrasts the voice of abuse, which shouts fear and shame, with the sweet song of freedom and healing. In Silent Cry, you will be encouraged to not let your pain define you or your future. I have no doubt that getting to know Dorothy Newton will enrich and encourage you.
Though the book’s title reads Silent Cry, this is a story about triumph and grace---the triumph of Dorothy, of her sons Tré and King, and ultimately of Nate Newton as well. Both the good and the bad we read in this story occur beneath the covering of God’s grace, which is the bedrock of Dorothy’s strength. In fact, this book is more than a story; it is a witness and full evidence of human capability. Every man should read this biography.
Powerful. Straightforward. Honest. Brave. These are words I use to describe Dorothy Newton. When I first met her, I knew immediately there was a spiritual strength about her that was uncommon. However, it wasn’t until she dared to share the story of Silent Cry with me that I fully understood how her ability to overcome personal pain had been shaped by her passion for Jesus. Dorothy chose in the midst of isolation and relational deprivation to turn her tears into floods of victory. She shares the truth of her personal story in a way that reveals hope for anyone difficult circumstances, unhealthy relationships, or even devastating loss. It is rare to find such honesty and hope in the same place. If you’ve ever wondered how you are going to make it, this book is for you.
Beauty, honesty, and guts describe this overcomer named Dorothy Newton. Because of Dorothy’s courage to tell her story, all of us will better understand the horrible reality of domestic violence in our own backyard. We’ll discover that all of us are responsible to learn about it, fight it, and give others a way out when they need it. Most of all, this true story will help victims know without a doubt that with God, they can escape domestic abuse and rise above it.
Truth brings liberty to the captive, gives beauty for ashes, great joy in place of grieving, and high praise to God instead of despair. Dorothy is a living testimony of this. She shares this story courageously so that the reader can experience God in their own set of circumstances. She found her tears and her freedom. Come, dear reader, and find yours too.

    This 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

    This book was provided to me free of charge by Book Look in return for my honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Silent 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.
