The book was a good read about the life of someone who was affected by domestic violence. It highlights aspects of abuse such as, emotional, psychological and economic abuse. Sometimes one thinks that you have to have physical scars to claim abuse but this books shows strongly that one can experience other types of abuse and suffer the same pain! This is important as the definition of domestic abuse takes into account all the forms of abuse mentioned.

I found her naivety to be extreme. I don’t know if this stems from her inexperience with men but she lived in a fantasy world of love. How many times will you try to fix someone or a marriage? What about John’s infidelity? She was willing to accept this and still try with the marriage, even though it was devoid of intimacy. In the process Mildred still continues to try to fulfil her love fantasy, she went on to have not one but three children in her emotional abused situation. Even went into business with John knowing of his deficiencies with finances. She was forever ‘shooting herself in the foot’ so to speak. She was forever the ‘mechanic’ trying to make things work, trying to keep the business afloat, trying to fix her marriage while taking care of her children. I admire her tenacity but at some point there would have been burnout!
Why does it have to take so much for some women to leave? A question we have asked so many times. Only those directly involved can answer that question in all fairness to them.

What is the love she so often speaks about between John and the children? Sorry to say but that was not love in the genuine sense of the word. That was a warp sense of love. Love according to John. I suppose she has to maintain that mantra for the sakes of the children’s emotional and psychological well-being. If a man loved his children, he will NOT kidnap them, he will NOT brainwash them and he will NOT lie to them about what was happening when they were in Antigua. What man will take his children away from their mother for 18 months and live in a different country and culture so many miles away. He was NOT thinking about the welfare of those children and that my dear friends is NOT love. He was being selfish and LOVE is kind not selfish. He did NOT love his children. All he wanted was to have them by any means necessary. They will be forever scarred because of his crimes.

Mildred, I hope to date would have accessed professional help for herself and those children. A victim of abuse can tell her story and impact others on survival among other things. She can be a caring and supportive mother, but she is not qualified to counsel her children from a professional stance. Reading books does not a professional make. There is training. I found this to be lack of insight on her part with that aspect and also a disrespect to the profession as it was trivialised in this regard. She meant well but she is not superwoman. I hope she has not developed a hero complex.

I also wanted to highlight the problem of PTSD in soldiers returning from war. She said the man that went to war never came back. He lost his essence and lustre. I think the war compounded his state of mind. He appeared to be highly competitive and also thrived on the ability to outshine anyone even his children (board games). If things were not going his way well it was all wrong. I also, don’t want to belittle what soldiers experience in wars in my feedback. Certainly there is a great impact, hence the PTSD. The man I believed that left for that war in Saudi just became the man after the war but a bit quicker. John seemed to be already on his way there. The war just hastened his footsteps. I don’t know when he became most likely a sociopath but he did denigrate into a psychopath at some point.

I like the way the book gave information on domestic violence centres. I also liked the domestic violence self -quiz at the end. The escape plan was very thorough and the copy of the restraining order gave insight into what that entailed. Great resources at the end of the book.
I wish the survivors of this ordeal well. It was a traumatic event, one that is not easily forgotten.

To the families of those who died, I sincerely hope that the pain decreases incrementally with time. When I saw the clip of Mildred, sitting in an interview with two of the survivors (one was supposed to be her friend). I saw the raw pain in that interview and I also observed Mildred trying to shield herself from that raw pain. This is such a sensitive and emotional draining situation to find oneself. I admire that she confronted this issue. Her heart maybe was pounding so fast in the process. It just had to be done.

I think the children are still hurting and also Mildred and rightfully so, however, the right professional help is needed. Having talks and seminars on domestic violence is good, it forms part of the healing process. What about when those talks are over and the goodbyes are said and Mildred’s head hit the pillow. Is she any better? I think that is the million dollar question. If she is then I am so happy for her. If she isn’t, I hope that subsequent reflection along with professional help can bring her to that place of peace and security for her sake and that of her children.

I wish her all the best in her endeavours and for highlighting the important fact that domestic violence doesn’t always leave physical scars but emotional and psychological as well and the pain is just as intense. To survive this and tell the tale is immense, for this she has my admiration and empathy.

** spoiler alert ** Scared Silent by Mildred Muhammad is one of the most riveting true stories I've ever read. While I was reading Mildred Muhammad's novel, I kept thinking to myself, there's no way that this could actually be someone's true life story. There's no way that this could be real. In reality, in truth, this is a real story of a woman who overcame more in the years of her life than most of us could even imagine. Mildred Muhammad tells her story of how she came through darkness into the light while married to the "D.C. Sniper". John Muhammad was a killer, and she was married to this killer. Unbeknownst to her, she was his intended target. He wanted to kill her. Mildred Muhammad is a true survivor, a loving mother, and an advocate for women who are threatened by domestic violence. Her story is inspirational and educational. There is much to learn about survival, the many forms of domestic violence, victims, true crime and the meaning of true love, self love in Mildred Muhammad's novel. It's an absolute page turner. I finished this book in just a couple of days. If you have some time and wish to learn about the true survivor behind the silence, pick up Scared Silent by Mildred Muhammad. I recommend this book to therapists, survivors of domestic abuse, and fans of true crime novels.

I had no idea what to expect from this book, but as someone that closely followed the DC sniper case and as someone that has followed Ms. Muhammad on social media and as someone that supports domestic abuse victims, I felt compelled to read it. I will not spoil t for you, but I will say that the book is well-written and will attach itself to the reader. I came away seeing Mildred Muhammad as not only a beautiful mother, but as a hero.

I loved this book. It was amazing to read about this woman's struggle in her marriage and afterwards. It really helps the reader understand why women will stay in abusive relationships. The reader really connects with the author and her vast array of emotions from acceptance, anger, fear, and frustration.

Could not put it down.

I was in the DC area during the shootings. It was my first book tour so I was more focused on that than I was about a sniper on the loose. It was only after the whole story came out that I realized how lucky I was to get back to California alive. As a former victim of abuse, my heart goes out to Sister Mildred. When I saw her on Court TV and heard that she was writing a book about her experience I couldn't wait to read her story. I read the book in one night, and then had nightmares. Only another victim of abuse can fully understand why I reacted the way I did. This is one women's club NOBODY wants to belong to. I sincerely thank Zane for publishing Mildred's book and I hope that we will all reach out to Mildred and support her by reading her story. It was awesome!

Mildred Muhammad's true life story is one that EVERY woman should read. After I opened the book, it was very hard to put down. Writing the story must have been so difficult, yet not even an iota as hard as living after she married the man who became the DC sniper. She tells her story openly with grace and deep inner strength, and is a beacon of light and hope for all women.

I finished this book in 2 days . I probably could have finished it in one day if I didnt have to go to work. The author is candid about her life with her husband.Her beautiful spirit is vivid as she takes the reader through her journey of discovering love, then betrayal, fear, and then courage. An excellent read for any person but one that I would highly recommend to women who are married to men who are serving or have served in the military.
I was curious about her. I am more concerned about what was done to John Muhammad....
