Author reveals impact of domestic violence on women, children

Janice Romney shares a story of hope, faith and love in moving new account

MORMON COLONIES, Mexico– Author Janice Romney has penned the true, harrowing account of how domestic violence impacted her life and shares a uniquely inspirational story of a family’s decision to unite and find healing through the power of love in her new nonfiction, “Beyond the Power of Love: A Woman’s Journey through Betrayal of Religion and Spousal Abuse” (published by iUniverse).

 

Domestic violence occurs in every segment of today’s society; no group or community is immune from it. According to Romney, more than one in four young women are the victims of it and 30 percent of girls between 15 – 19 who are killed are murdered by their boyfriends. These sobering statistics, combined with the author’s own personal experience, were a powerful catalyst for writing “Beyond the Power of Love.”

 

With a resounding theme of empowerment, “Beyond the Power of Love” looks at the emotional and physical effects of abuse as well as the suppression of women using religious indoctrination. Romney also discusses the long-term impact of domestic violence on children who grow up witnessing it.

Book Description(Amazon)

November 29, 2012
Some of Janice Romney’s earliest memories bring back painful images of sexual abuse, and the guilt and turmoil from that abuse at age five carried throughout her life. In Beyond the Power of Love, Romney narrates her life story from the perspective of a mother and woman who lived through abuse, divorce, marriage, transformation, and fallen dreams—only to discover the healing power of love.

In this new revision of her earlier book, Beneath Wings of Angel, she provides firsthand insight deep into the heart of a disturbing and terrifying world of abuse. She shares a journey filled with heartbreaking challenges as she moves from domestic violence to freedom. Even with its difficulties, however, her story is one of great healing, faith, and love.

MY THOUGHTS:

BEYOND THE POWER OF LOVE by Janice Romney is an amazing Memoir. *Revision of “Beneath Wings of an Angel,published in 2004* It is the story of one woman’s struggle with spousal abuse,the power of religion,childhood abuse,her triumph and though it all, the power of love.

A powerful,compelling story of sexual,physical and mental abuse,ending the cycle of abuse and most of all the healing power of love. Abuse does not only effect the person, but the children involved also. A heart wrenching story that is not only powerful,but healing though faith,education,family and prevention. If you know of someone in an abusive relationship,please check out the resources this author has included. “Beyond The Power of Love” is not only an adult,young childhood situation but also teenage abuse as well. A must read! Be warned you will need tissues handy. This author did an amazing job of pouring her heart out,which I am sure was hard for her to describe some of the things she went through to get to where she is today. I was crying from the beginning to end. A powerful lady,with a desire to STOP the cycle of abuse,one person at a time. A powerful,powerful story! I would highly recommend “Beyond the Power of Love” not only for readers who enjoy Memoirs,but to readers who enjoy an awesome read,and for anyone who knows someone who is or has been abused.  Received for an honest review from the author.

RATING: 4.5

HEAT RATING: MILD

~Welcome, Kara of The Knights of Galaria~

Thank you, Kara for taking a few moments of your time for us….

KARA RAVENSTORM


My Graduation

 

It’s a hot day on the plaza, definitely warmer than expected, and these uniforms certainly are doing nothing to aid the situation. But impending heatstroke aside, it is hard to be at this ceremony and not reflect on the last seven years I’ve spent at this institution. Why, this place has been my home since the day my parents dropped me off at the academy, shortly after my eleventh birthday.

 

Why aren’t they here? Royal duties or not, they should be here to see the culmination of all my hard work, to see me ascend into the Knight Corp.

 

 

Well, that’s a laugh. I still haven’t told my father King Wilhelm that I plan to serve in the Corp professionally. Until now, military service had just been tradition for the royal household up to the end of the academic level. Father will surely throw a fit when I tell him. I’m sure he’s probably already handpicked a prince for me to marry; my days attending royal functions, my evening’s banquets and balls.

 

I scoff at the very notion. I have yet to meet the prince who believes he can tame me, the majority around Galaria already know better by now. They’re not even on my radar. Not like him.

 

 

Kaz looks dashing, walking up the steps to the stage in his brand new uniform. The role of valedictorian suits him, he deserves it, he’s worked very hard. Poor thing, he looks so nervous. I should flash him a smile to let him know it’ll be fine. Once the Supreme Commander’s speech is finished, then it should be Xul Xandu’s, then Kaz’s should be right after. I do hope his nerves don’t get the better of him.

 

In any event I want to get past this ceremony to get to the gala. I’ve had my brand new red dress flown in from Zanru and can’t wait to wear it. Yes, today is shaping up to be a wonderful day…

 

Again,Thank you Kara for stopping by today!
