Book Review: Love Seen From Hell by John Emil Augustine

John Emil Augustine about this book: I, quite frankly, never wanted to write a book. It kind of happened accidentally. I wrote this story to try to help my friend, kind of my kid sister, after her abusive relationship. In wanting to tell it properly, it ended up being as long as a book! (My poor friend!) When I realized that it, in fact, was a book, I also realized that the topic, spousal abuse, was an important one.
Sadly, I had written a true story about my own abuse and therefore could not publish it. My ex would kill me! Perhaps literally. Then again, I thought, if I used a pen name...well, then I might be able to make my point for someone else who might need the encouragement to get through a tough relationship like I had...without getting myself into trouble. So I copied and pasted it from facebook, made the story look nice, worked out the kinks (mostly), and BAM! A labor of love was born.
So it's a wild romance with many twists and turns, it's completely true, and, I hope, it's also inspiring. Hope that gives you an idea of the book! :)
