White Sorrow – A true story of marital abuse and survival

White Sorrow is a raw and honest, true story about one woman’s journey from riches to rags through an abusive marriage.

When Andrea met Mark Whilst holidaying in the UK visiting family, she thought she had found a promise of happy forever after.

The fairytale ends immediately after the wedding when the relationship takes a sharp turn into a reality that Andrea could never have expected. The stream of shocking events including emotional, mental and physical abuse will evoke every emotion in the reader.

“My life changed in 2008 when I met someone. I’ll call him Mark. Well, Mark was drinking at a gathering in my uncle’s house party, and the first thing I noticed was that every time he was offered a drink, he said yes. We were invited to uncle’s house because he was attempting to lift me out of my misery.

It was not long before we started talking; Mark seemed all right and like a decent man. He was a kind looking gentleman; that was my first impression of him. We spoke a lot on various subjects, but all these years later, I really can’t recall the exact nature of the matter.” From the book, White Sorrow.

From emotional and mental attacks to unwanted physical advances through to downright cruelty and starvation, White Sorrow tells a story of an abusive marriage’s harshness behind closed doors.

How far does one mother have to go to have a future with her children? What can she do to survive?

“I thought over it, and then I decided. I was 28 and getting older; I hadn’t thought of marriage before, and he seemed nice, so why not? Plus I thought it would give me a life of more freedom, which I longed for. By nature I am a hopeless romantic, so when a situation of love and marriage was intertwined that nature just took over…it took control of me.” Said by Andrea Aviet in White Sorrow.
