Book Review: THE BEAST I LOVED: A Battered Woman's Desperate Struggle To Survive by Robert Davidson

June spends her whole life being abused and belittled. She is a child when she marries. She continues to be abused by her husband. She does everything she can to protect her children from her husband. June is never perfect enough. She constantly tries but can never get things right for her husband. After several years she is finally able to break free. She loses her children in the process and must spend years behind bars. She is one of the first women to ever be classified as suffering from Battered Woman Syndrome. It is amazing that she was able to live through all the abuse. It is so sad that her daughters blame everything in their life on her, once again making her a victim. Hopefully her children are able to forgive their mother and understand the position she was in. Robert Davidson did a wonderful job researching this case and lays it all on the line with no sugar coating. This story will stay with you and might change your view on what it means to be abused.

*Thank you to Robert Davidson, WildBlue Press, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
