The Unspoken Abuse

By Edward Charles

True crime, Biography & memoir | Paperback, eBook


She came across as a settled person who loved her family, but there was just something that she seemed to be holding back on. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but hey, who was I to question her? A heart-breaking true story of misplaced trust and horrific abuse. Edward Charles thought he knew the woman he married. He thought he understood her, and that he had saved her from a maniacal man that made her life a misery. He thought he was her hero, but she wasn’t the one that needed saving. Edward was a career-driven man when he met Angie. She was going through personal trauma and leant on Edward for support, which he was all too happy to give. They fell in love and began a happy life together. But their fairytale didn’t continue that way as, during a life-changing night, Angie put out a cigarette on Edward's wrist. This event marked the beginning of his painful life of secret abuse. Edward writes with a colloquial and readable style that reaches the audience on a personal level, making his experiences approachable, whilst keeping the reality and gravity of the abuse central to his story. "Readers of A Child Called It" series and "The Murder of Jeffery Dryden" will discover another horrendous secret world, and the heart-rending story of the extraordinary person who suffered it. Edward’s hellish journey, not only through what his wife forced upon him, but through the difficulty he faced in obtaining help from the authorities, shows true determination and raises a real issue that often remains unnoticed and unacknowledged. Edward has taken part in radio interviews on the issue of male domestic violence, and hopes his story will instil courage and hope in others who may still be suffering in silence.

A Story of Domestic Violence: When A Wife Becomes a Feared Companion. Stories regarding domestic violence have held a home on bookstore shelves for many decades. These tales often involve a woman who is abused and dominated by the very man who should care about her the most. Typically, these books end up being a moving tale of female survival. However, there is another sinister side to these types of stories and those involve the man being the victim while the woman is the controlling and abusive partner. Such is the case in the riveting autobiographical book, The Unspoken Abuse, by author Edward Charles. This book provides an insightful and powerful view into the hellish life of one abuse survivor. Edward speaks candidly about the events of his life during this traumatic phase and leaves no stone unturned in revealing the truth behind his experiences. While once thought of as taboo, the author is forthright in his approach to this topic. His sincere hope is that others will learn from his own experiences and draw inspiration from his story. One telling review of this book indicates, “I literally started and finished this book in one day. What this man has had to ensure is heartbreaking. It brings to light a very real issue! Women and children are not the only ones to suffer at the hands of an abuser. Very poignant and moving.” Edward Charles had high hopes that he had found the love of his life when he met Angie. She was going through a bad divorce at the time that they met and Edward was more than happy to lend her his full love and support. Once they moved in together with Angie’s son, it seems like nothing but calm and love awaited them. This vision was shaken one night when Angie put out a cigarette on Edward’s wrist and embarked on a bizarre and brutal course of abuse towards him. He was not only physically mistreated, but mentally abused as well. With a daughter later in the picture, he struggled harder than ever to make peace with his wife and put an end to her violent tendencies. Reaching out to the authorities seemed almost hopeless, as they had a very difficult time grasping the concept of the wife as abuser and the husband as victim. Once he had finally escaped the grasp of Angie, Edward realized that while the abuse of him had come to an end, she was now going to use their daughter as a weapon. The author crafts a raw and real picture for the reader. While at times the abuse is difficult to read about, the perseverance and grit of Edward is inspirational. This book unmasks some of the darkest secrets in society, while at the same time providing hope for others in a similar situation. Another review of this book reveals, “I think we all know women like this, but men are ashamed. It is sad that the children suffer so much.”
