Her Last Plea by Adriene Jones Book Review and Giveaway

Her Last Plea by Adriene Jones is the true story of Sylvia Jones and the short life she lived with horrific abuse and eventual death.  Sylvia was one of the daughters of a large loving family.  She was beautiful, outgoing and had a passion for life.  Her greatest downfall was loving violent men and letting them take advantage of her.  After she endured such wrath from her first boyfriend, Sylvia was charmed by Joseph Black.  Sylvia's yearning to be loved cost her her life and in the end, even though her family tried to save her, she became a victim.  Sylvia's story was written by one of her sisters who cared so deeply for her and chose to share this story for other women to learn to get out of damaging relationships.

This book spared no detail in language or events.  It consisted of a lot of strong dialogue and sometimes it was hard to read because the conversations didn't flow so easily  There were also a lot of family members in this story and I couldn't keep all the relationships in order.  But what I really noticed about Sylvia's story is the devotion of the family to protect her from who eventually took her life.  It was a sad story and I hope that women who read this book can learn the signs for an unsafe relationship and get out and move on.
