What a delightfully long and enjoyable book. It's the first book I've read by Mr. Ray Dacolias, and after reading The Tragedy of Woman, I plan on getting his other books. Oscine is a valiant and strong woman who has survived many tragedies that no woman should ever have to endure or go through. It was like reading a nightmare at some points, and what made it worth reading, was how she handled and overcame the nightmares in her life.
As a survivor of my own nightmares, it was an interesting read, that kept me hooked from the very beginning, all the way to the very end. The author takes the reader on a rough journey of emotions and I found that each emotion I went through added to my love of the book. You can't help but feeling each emotion invoked by Mr. Ray Dacolias in his writing.
I found it refreshing to read about her difficulties and joys in a new marriage, and new baby. Not many authors write about the reality of what happens behind door with a newly wed couple and/or a new mother. Mr. Ray Dacolias does a great job at painting a picture of the life Oscine has lived, and I know many other people can empathize with her story since the reality of what she went through is all to real in the real world.
Most people who have gone through a rough childhood, end up leading a rough adult life, and it wasn't surprising to see that her life was full of complications. I really enjoyed the realness of this book and how close to the truth of many women lives it represented. I give this book a 5/5 and recommend it to anyone who has overcome obstacles and had a difficult or less than ideal life.
