In her dramatic memoir, written with frankness and transparency, Tracey Jefferson details her seven year marriage as it cascaded into horrible abuse. She thought he was funny, handsome, and just the right type of man for herself and son. Although she was a bit older than he, they shared a lot in common. They were quickly engaged and married less than a year after meeting. After the first year of marriage, she realized that she was with a man who at first seemed charming, but was in fact harmful to her spiritual, mental, physical, and financial well-being. As the verbal and physical attacks increased, so did the financial troubles.
Tracey was at a loss. What was she to do when the man who made a vow to care for her was the source of her pain? None of her family or friends knew what was going on in her household. At first she dismissed his behaviors, indiscretions, and manipulation, and even defended him. She gave into his desires and accepted blame. When she finally had enough, she told his siblings. Eventually, she ended the marriage because she knew he wouldn't change. Her troubles didn’t stop once the relationship was dissolved. She had to deal with the economic fallout and emotional despair.
Tracey wrote Suffering In Silence to help women and men who are suffering in their own silence—those who have not shared their experiences so that they could get help to get out. After Tracey looked back, she discovered that the signs were present before marriage, and others saw them, yet she played it off...because she believed that he would fill the void in her soul.
