    Each year, states rely on numbers to show the deeply disturbing trend of men killing the women they claim to have loved. But numbers don’t and can’t show the whole picture. Ella Mae: How My Mother Died tells the story of a thousand battered wives. Yet her story carries a twisted and tragic fate. Told by her son, this controversial story unearths the dark secrets of one family that for years have laid buried. For more than a decade the matron of the family endures verbal abuse and vicious attacks at the hands of the man she loves and who once professed to love her. Silently, she endures as she seeks and finds her source of strength. Then one day, something within her explodes and this soft, steely woman finds the courage to take a stand. But that stand would become her last. Her husband, an ex-military man, changes strategy. He turns her family and children, including a son who is a part of a secret society, against her; making them his combatants in the couple’s cold and cruel war.... More > And when he threatens to kill her, no one takes it seriously, not even the cops. No one listens when she says she isn’t crazy. Well, none except for her favorite son who steps in to help. But in the end, even he couldn't change her fate. The true story of Ella Mae shows a life of violence, abandonment, betrayal and, perhaps, murder...? But it also tells a tale of love, a son for his mother. Creatively written and heartfully told, this story shows there are no atypical types when it comes to the villains and victims of domestic violence. And while it offers no misguided hope, for the protagonist there is the promise of lasting peace.< Less
