It takes a lot of courage to tell this story! I commend you for that. The author took you behind the walls of a life that few dare to reveal. The book was well written and outstanding.

This book has a challenging subject matter which needed exposure from the victim's point of view. It is mentally invigorating to see the author wading through the storms of life which normally should have destroyed her faith in the Lord; however, she tenaciously holds on to her faith and confidence in God. The author expresses her experiences with tact and balance. In summary, the manuscript gives the effect of being therapeutic to the author, and it has the structure of bringing closure to a turbulent life experience.  - Dr.  John T. Leslie, Jr.

Ms. Ondrea L. Davis has penned a winner her first time out the door with How could my husband be GAY? Sad to say that it had to be an autobiographical account, however, this tale is heart-felt, disturbing, and mildly amusing as it mirrored what I personally went through a few years ago. I read this story with the intent to see if I could have prevented something or how I could have possibly missed the signs. - Cheryl Hayes, APOOO Book Club

Ondrea L. Davis courageously shares her story with readers in hopes of preventing other women from facing what she faced. Marceous King was an abusive husband. There are many forms of abuse; Marceous preferred mental and verbal abuse. Many times there was no food in the house to feed the children. He purposely gave his son formula instead of breast milk, resulting in his vomiting. The couple tried counseling, but there are some things counseling cannot fix. No human, whether male or female, should ever have to face abuse at the hands of another. Ondrea faced more than her share. She believed in the sanctity of marriage and tried to hold her marriage together.

This book has an important sociological value as it covers the relationship between abuser and abused within a marriage. Though I do not follow the School of Psychoanalysis the case is well diagnosed: "The real reason why this marriage is not working is because you are still sucking on your mother's breast." The husband grew up following a script: Suck on mother's breast while destroying the wife's breast.  The story feeds on the natural anger of a betrayed and psychologically abused wife and in-law, while accepting the permanent emotional dependence of the abused wife on her abusive husband.  As a former clinician I must admit that I came across several very similar cases... not all husbands were gay, but did have issues stemming from difficulties with their psychosexual identification.  I would recommend this well-written book for group discussion among students of counseling. - Alex Canton-Dutari, PhD, Book Junkies

The title alone grabs me and the pages left me speechless. The situations that the main character dealt with are absolutely heartbreaking. So many signs and red flags were thrown but all in the name of love, she held on. Sometimes holding on means sacrificing yourself in the process. Eventually she left and realized that she loved herself more. - Allison "Essence M" Edwards, Author

I felt like a fly on the wall as I read this memoir. I found myself unable to put this book down, needing and wanting to know what would come next. The author is truly a woman of strength to have endured such adversity and betrayal. I believe that every young woman needs to read this book so that they can realize that not all marriages end in "happily ever after". – Adrienne Thompson, Author
