Jeff was a victim of Male Domestic Abuse, the batterer, his female Girlfriend. This book details the days and months leading up to Jeff’s Murder, it further goes into detail on the hearing and trial of his abuser and murder, now serving 14 to 45 years in prison for the death of Jeffery Dryden. Furthermore, this book exposes the truth behind truth on the highly ignored and overlooked disease known as Male Domestic Abuse… men being abused by their female lovers.
I can only imagine the heaviness she felt in her heart as her mind raced with images of her fallen son. Her legs weakening with each passing thought, buckling to the strain, succumbing to the devastating heartache and fury as her mind continued to race through all the recollections, all the past happy memories, shattering through her like shards of broken glass. Falling down to the floor, lost in an inferno of sadness mixed with hate, confusion mixed with loss, of outright horror and shock. It pains me to think of it now, what horrors ran through her, what dread fixed upon her soul that moment, those seconds, those breaths, after being told of such a loss and death
Sad, sad story
"The book was great, true crime is always so painful. I started reading it around 9am the morning I got it and didn’t want to put it down, sadly I had to go to work. I finished it that night, and found your words sad. It’s a same something so tragic happened to such a fine young man. I hope that woman spends her time in jail contemplating her actions and if anything, admits her guilt, not only for Jeff’s family and friends, but for her own mortal soul as well. "
A MUST READ for all men and women in relationships
read the whole book the same night it was bought for me and found it highly fasinating. THe personal parts and the factual information on male domestic abuse was mind blowing and tear shredding. It really does get the message across about this horrible travestie. This was a murder that didn't have to happen. A murder that could have been prevented if one person, the woman of all people, would have used the common sense that God gave her. So sad that Jeff's death that night wa all over a stupid cell phone. Would love to see this book in my local library some time soon. Overall i believe this book and Jeff's story needs to be read and told, so that others facing the same issues in their relationship can see what truly happenes when you let your fears get the best of you.
