One woman's journey I liked that Charlene was courageous enough to know that she needed to make major changes in her life to protect herself and her children. She came from an abusive home and then an abusive marriage.
She learned that she had value and deserved a better life than what her father and husband had provided for the majority of her life. I like how she made baby steps to improve her life, attitude and education so she could be a self reliant single woman and mother. This was a woman One woman's journey I liked that Charlene was courageous enough to know that she needed to make major changes in her life to protect herself and her children. This was a woman who met challenges and kept her perspective without becoming bitter.
Very believable character and plot. Jul 13, Lynn S rated it it was ok. I've started so I'll finish it was hard Honestly I skipped a lot of pages mostly the emails as there is a lot. It is a bit boring and very long winded. I mean come on your husband is abusing you and you run and hide and phone your minister not the police. Charlene's constant need to have a man in her life is just sad. Disappointed with the ending too , marrying a man that you compared to you husband half way though the book.
Silent Cries 7
Sorry this book just wasn't for me. Feb 09, Patty rated it it was amazing.
Overall this was a good book. It deals with spousal abuse. Charlene divorces Brad and starts over with five children. There are a lot of email messages in this story to her best friend and to a guy she meets on a dating service.
A Thousand Silent Cries
I felt at times the emails rambled on when they could of been shorter. Charlene's husband harasses her a lot after their split. She meets Dave and they have a deep friendship. Will it become more?

I think the book is worth reading to find out. Jul 23, Lillie rated it really liked it Shelves: challenge , christian-fiction. The story of Charlene's abusive marriage and what it took to escape was fascinating and very emotional. I got impatient with her making excuses for her abuser, but I know this is common behavior among abused women. The story was slower moving and less interesting after she was divorced and started dating.

There was a series of emails with one guy over a long period--not romantic; they even talked about who they were dating--then he just disappeared. Those messages didn't contribute anything to the story; if that's all there was to the relationship, the reader didn't need to read each email. I found it a little surprising that Charlene dated so much and got so deeply involved with several men so quickly after her divorce.
Many badly abused women are more cautious about starting a relationship with a man again, doubting their own judgment when it comes to men and fearing more abuse. Also, she had five children between the ages of two and eleven--which puts a damper on the social lives of a lot of mothers. Yet she went out dancing most weekends and lined up dates frequently. Sep 27, Susan Tietjen rated it liked it. Some of the characters were better than one-dimensional but for me not developed well enough.
The author's voice is different and it took me a while to get used to it. Because of my own experiences with spousal abuse, I stuck with the story, but there times that the flow wasn't as interesting as I would have liked. Others, I loved it, and the problems with her ex were gut-wrenching. It also felt like it went on longer than I would have liked, as if the author felt that putting the character thru Some of the characters were better than one-dimensional but for me not developed well enough. It also felt like it went on longer than I would have liked, as if the author felt that putting the character thru more hoops would make it a better book.
