Heartbreaking story, yet the complexities of these relationships are so difficult to understand.

Also, my great (x8) grandmother back was an axe murderer. True story. I wrote about it not too long ago. I truly believe the situation you described was the kind of thing she was dealing with — and she chose to kill him or killed him defending herself. Here’s the story if you want to read (I think there may have been 5 whole people that read it when I published it lol) Frankie Silver

Thank you so much for sharing your story. It is shocking the strength of these women. Shocking.
