The Husband, a memoir by Aaron Daniel Behr, is now available on all major markets!
Loser. Thug. Abuser. Stupid. Worthless.
Insults play on repeat in The Husband’s brain. He has been bullied and abused. An affair by The Wife, the one person The Husband loved the most, leaves him standing in a dark basement with a homemade noose around his neck.
As The Husband struggles silently through the anguish of betrayal and divorce, he turns inward to face a host of past tormentors, and confront The Creator. One way or another, The Boy inside him will stop the pain.
This raw, redemptive memoir will reshape our discussion of the victims of divorce and mental illness.
Critical Praise for The Husband
“The Husband is addictive. Aaron Daniel Behr throws the reader into a raw world of strong emotion and even stronger faith. Only Jesus could take this story of heartbroken despair and transform it into such a deeply moving, redemptive work. I admire Behr for sharing so bravely, and I pray that God will use this book to bless many hearts for His glory.” —Shannon Upton, motivational speaker and author of Organizing You
“Real, raw and brutally honest, The Husband is an unflinching look at one man’s struggle with mental illness. Aaron Daniel Behr is one of those rare Christian authors who dares to explore the depths of depression while still clinging to hope in the end.” —Christopher Stollar, award-winning author of The Black Lens
“The Husband is a poignant, brutally honest critique of the silencing of males regarding their relationships with women. The refusal of many women to admit that men’s emotional attachments are as deep as their own has created a culture in America in which men and their feelings are often ignored or derided. The protagonist in The Husband meets these problems, along with a devastating physical illness, head-on with an amazing amount of restraint and self-reflection. He successfully navigates this difficult pathway with the help of family and friends and, more importantly, God.” —Dr. Barbara Ragan, PhD of Literature and Literary Criticism
“The Husband is a masterpiece of honesty, and a triumph of vulnerability. This tremendous book is a testimony to the power of sin, and a testimony to the redemptive love of an almighty God. You will read it in one sitting.” —Brad Pauquette, author of Sejal: The Walk for Water
