Reviews - What do customers think about Scars of Silence: An Amazing Journey of Survival?

Courage Beyond Imagination!  Oct 21, 2006
In this work by author Mary Ann Worsham we find a typical American girl who, like most of us, believes in her heart for the fairy-tale marriage and life, but this woman would have to face unimaginable events that should only be found in a horror movie and never be in a real person's life. As her story unfolds our author takes us through her life and the many abuses that she endured through the hands of those who violated her rights as a person and took advantage of her soul; and the worse kind of abuses from those she loved and trusted.
Mary Ann does not call herself a victim but a survivor and indeed she is. Overcoming workplace sexual harassment, physical abuse, accidents, acts of nature and attempted murder on her person, this woman has emerged as a strong beacon for those who are suffering some of the same to follow. A sobering read, but one I am sure that will help those that unfortunately follow in Mary Ann's footsteps as they too try to overcome the darkness that has shadowed their doors. I applaud our author and pray this book gets into the hands of those who need her strength and encouragement to help them also overcome and stand as yet another survivor.
Breaking the silence  Oct 14, 2006
Reviewed by April Sullivan for Reader Views (9/06)

Domestic violence and crimes of passion happen every day in this country. Separation from a spouse is a trigger for domestic violence. According to "Scars of Silence" "...seventy-three percent of the emergency room visits by battered women occur after separation from a violent partner/husband. As much as ninety percent of the hostage taking in this country is domestic. As many as fifty percent of women killed by partners/husbands are murdered at or after separation."

Many of us are familiar with famous cases of women murdered by their spouses/partners such as Nicole Brown Simpson, Chandra Levy, and Laci Peterson. If only these women were here now to tell us what happened so that women in similar situations could learn from them. They cannot. But Mary Ann Worsham can. She miraculously lived through a severe beating that included twenty skull fractures from hammer blows and ten stab wounds to the face and head, during an attack by her estranged husband. Amazingly, she is alive and able to tell her story.

"Scars of Silence" is Mary Ann Worsham's story of triumph over adversity - not just the severe beating that left her with traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder, but everything from fires and earthquakes to workplace harassment and mental and verbal abuse. Even though she has been through so much, her faith in God and her upbeat attitude keep her going, and gave her the courage to write this book. By writing this book she is breaking the silence. A silence that is large because so many of the women in her situation did not live to tell their stories.

Mary Ann Worsham is not a great writer. She does not need to be. Her audience should not be looking for a great literary work, but rather a straightforward account of certain events in her life, as well as a resource guide to assist others who find themselves in the same situations. She speaks from the standpoint of a survivor, not an expert in any field. This is a fresh approach to what is essentially a self-help book.

"Scars of Silence" is one woman's brave attempt at breaking down the walls of domestic violence. As painful as the events must have been to recount, Mary Ann Worsham has taken it on as her personal mission to help others who are going through some of the same issues she has been through. She teaches us that one person can make a difference and that no one needs to suffer alone and in silence.
