Within the pages of Annie A. Cozens` new book, Abused without Mercy, ($10.99, paperback, 9781498445856) readers will discover a real life story of abuse. A young innocent girl starved for affection meets a young man, desiring for him to fill a void in her life. She believes if she gives him everything he wants then he will love her in return. In her naivety, she mistakes his lust for love. This man is a controller. This book reveals how she gets caught in a web of her husband’s abuse – at a time when problems in the home were not spoken. She is scared to talk to authorities for fear of punishment. It took years for her to realize that obeying her husband was different from allowing him to use his mouth to belittle her and his hand to strike her. Instead he should have used his heart to love her.
“I want readers to understand that not only is abuse not scriptural, Jesus himself commanded us to love one another,” states the author. “Even a Christian wife is not to settle for treatment of this kind. Neither is a Christian husband to allow his wife to belittle him. This book will hopefully build courage into the reader not to accept second best in their relationship.”
Annie A. Cozens` is a wife, mother and grandmother. Having suffered hurt and shame, she hopes by writing her story will help other women from falling into that same trap. Although this is a different age in time with more education and discussion, abuse still thrives and women still remain silent. Annie escaped this marriage when she was almost fifty and went on to gain a professional career, proving you are never too old to learn. The scars remain and she has had to battle her emotions especially when made to feel inferior. She is now a semi-retired health professional and a Bible college graduate.
