Out Of The ShadowsOut Of The Shadows by Theresa Sederholt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh My God! I don’t know where to start with this review. This book totally blew me away. Firstly, total kudos for Theresa Sederholt of tackling such a difficult taboo subject. Secondly, unless you have a swinging brick for a heart then you will need tissues for this book. A whole big box of them,
This story deals with the subject of physical and mental abuse but in this case it is the husband who is being abused. The story is told from the POV of Dane Johnson and also his 13 year old son Brady. It is heartbreaking and emotional and will leave you a wreck. Subject to horrendous abuse by his deranged wife Julie, Dane will do everything he can to keep his son Brady safe, but what happens when Brady tries to help his dad and Julie turns on him?
We read lots of stories where women are the subject of abuse and we tend to forget that this is not a women only issue. There are men out there who are on the receiving end too. Reading Dane’s story of why he didn’t walk away and why he felt he couldn’t ask for help is totally heartbreaking.
I devoured this book in one sitting. I just could not put it down, as I was so gripped by the story. I’d give this book more than 5 stars if I could.
