Susan Banes was a young woman who trusted everyone, and that may have been her undoing.
In the prime of her life, she began a relationship with a man who seemed like he was Prince Charming. He lived up to that image early on, but it was all part of a ploy.
In this memoir, she recalls the abuse she suffered and how escaping it was just the beginning of her ordeal. Even when she thought she was managing her life well, she was really suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
Many women are suffering from the same condition or a similar one, and they don’t even know it. By keeping their feelings trapped inside, they’re making a serious problem worse.
Whether you’re stuck in an abusive relationship, want to help someone in a bad situation, or are struggling to put your life back together after a long ordeal, you’ll be inspired by the author’s will to survive in Toxic Silence.
