“When the Fairytale Ends: The Journey to Overcome Abuse”: a touching account of the author as she looks back in the years of devastating hurt she endured in the hands of abuse. “When the Fairytale Ends: The Journey to Overcome Abuse” is the creation of published author Marisa Russo, a writer who resides in the Greater New York area with her family and beloved pets. She enjoys music, scrapbooking, exercising, and spending time with friends. After finding herself in an abusive marriage, she vowed to take her pain and turn it around so she can help other women facing similar situations.

Russo shares, “When you think about abuse, do you think of someone being slapped? Or punched? I did too until I found myself in a toxic marriage in which I was emotionally, verbally, mentally, and financially abused. I did not even know I was being abused until I was taken out of the situation and started seeing a therapist. This is my story of how the abuse changed my life, of how I had to fight to rebuild my life.

“I want to educate others to know that abuse is not just physical—to know that you can be ‘beaten down’ with words, with threats. You are not alone, and there is hope for a new beginning. I hope to inspire other women. I look back at my journey and know that God was with me the entire time. I wanted to give up, to not go on anymore, but God gave me a purpose, and it was through that pain that I reached my purpose—to be a light in someone else’s pain.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Marisa Russo’s new book is a poignant and emotional testimony of how God’s constant presence saved a woman who was on the brink of giving up.

With this book, readers will find light and hope that no matter what happens, God will always remain present during—and especially in—the battles of one life.
