Mr. Turley basically pens an enlightening documentation of physical and mental abuse. He also explores the cycle with which the abuse begins, continues, and grows to become a hideous monster that destroys relationships. The introduction takes you on a visual journey of a little boy enduring the bullying and the anger that is birthed from the incident. It also talks about watching his mother suffer abuse at the hands of her husband, which eventually spills over onto him as he challenges the ogre.
My first impression with My Darkest Hour was that the book would entail a short storyline, but in reading it, I felt like I was viewing a documentary. Mr. Turley paints a picture of different stages of abuse, whether it include mental or physical brutality, while also giving a cause and effect point of view. Biblical scriptures are added features to this storyline. I think the author accomplished his goals with My Darkest Hour because it was just as the synopsis identified it to be. A practical picture of life as the recipient of abuse as a child, the sight of the prey becoming the predator, and the anger and anguish that everyone suffers at the hands of violence.
