For Immediate Release – January 23, 2018
Zanesville, OH – Columbus Press has released The Husband, a new novel by Aaron Daniel Behr, to all major markets. This raw, redemptive memoir will reshape the discussion of the victims of divorce and mental illness.
According to Behr, he wrote the book following his wife’s adultery and subsequent demand for a divorce, and his journey to reconcile with God through those hardships, including hospitalization in a mental health facility. “I was called by God to start a conversation about mental illness, divorce, and suicide,” Behr said. Statistically, men are far more likely to commit suicide following a divorce than are women.
Behr attributes his unique perspective on these issues to a history of childhood bullying and misdiagnosed mental illness. Behr has dedicated the first $200,000 of his royalties to The Salvation Army, to, Behr said, “Impact children who are bullied, as well as to broaden [The Salvation Army’s] mental illness support programs.”
The Husband has received tremendous critical praise prior to publication. Christopher Stollar, the award-winning author of The Black Lens, wrote, “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.”
The Husband is available from all major markets, including Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com, Sony-Kobo, and iTunes, among others. Interested readers should request a copy at their local bookstore. Learn more and find links to reviewers and retailers at the author’s website, www.AaronDanielBehr.com.
