I just finished reading The Shattered Oak by Sherry Genga. This is a book that gives insight to domestic abuse, divorce, attempted suicide and misdiagnosis of mental illness. As I’m reading this book of this woman’s life the pain she endured as a child is disturbing. She was neglected by her dad because of an unknown reason until later on in her life. As she becomes an adult she marries her “prince charming” but due to being in love doesn’t realize the signs till later, and instead of being treated like a queen, feels more like an opponent fighting for her life to survive. Her prince charming is a man who is physical and emotionally abusive, and it takes a toll on her. After getting divorced, she tries to commit suicide, thank god she survives. Later on in her life she is sent to a mental facility due to her suicide attempts and she gets misdiagnosed and not until later does the nurse realize she is suffering due to the domestic abuse she endured and given the proper treatment to recover. As I read this book, the author brings the emotions of the character to life and truly brings awareness to domestic abuse.
