    Being a product of abuse, this book tug at many memories of mine that I choose to forget My heart ached for Sara and her children in every scene of abuse The author did such an amazing job writing the scenes that I felt as though I was standing right next to Sara during most of the book Be prepared for raw emotions to come out while reading this There is nothing terrifying then walking away, and I commend Sara on the courage she pulled from within to do it I really liked how she introduced us to her childhood because I feel it is a vital part to her life story, and it would have felt empty if she opened the book at the beginning of her marriage I feel so horrible that the author had to live through this horrendous relationship with her husband It honestly broke my heart to read her story, but I commend her o...

    Torn from the inside out is a non fiction account of a woman who spends thirteen years in an abusive marriage Synthesizing an entire book down to that one sentence robs it of the true horror that this book represents.The book follows Sara from her life as a child to her life as a battered wife What I expected and found in this book is the horrible, repetitive, numbing nature of domestic abuse In doing only that, Sara has done a service with her book For those of you not familiar with domestic abuse, you ll find that Sara expertly guides the reader through the unfortunately well worn path and progression of this pathology Starting with the initial disbelief and ending with a numbness and acceptance of repeated, awful terrors, Sara weaves a tapestry of pure evil and hopelessness Sara has a fine evocative touch with her pen The story begins with a rendering of an almost idyllic life in the rural south during the nineteen sixties Poetic and flowery without being cloying, Sara s style is highly evocative Almost immediately the reader finds themselves immersed in the culture and the period of Sara s youth Slowly, throughout the book, the tone changes to fit the events and people that become a reality in the life of a battered woman, fighting for the survival of h...

    In Torn From the Inside Out Sara Niles takes the reader through the escalating cycles of abuse Watching her grow from a lively and curious child to a tortured and demoralized wife and mother is a compelling if painful journey This is not a book for the squeamish but it is a book for anyone who has been impacted or has someone in her life who has been a victim survivor of domestic violence Born and raised in the rural south of the 1970 s Sara s story could as easily be about a girl raised in a big northern city no...

    This is a very touching book about one woman s struggle through the horror of domestic violence It s about how it affected her life as well as her children s life As a survivor of domestic violence myself I want to personally thank this author for sharing her story Now with that being said I also have to say that this book was a hard read for me The Book that I read was copyrighted 2004, and I believe there may be a newer edition available, however the one that...
