Her Father's House and Other Stories of Sicily

Ten stories of impoverished Sicilian women in the early 20th century—“honed, polished, devastatingly direct . . . verismo at its unsentimental best” (Kirkus Reviews). The Sicilian writer Maria Messina’s captivating and brutal stories of the women of her home island are presented in a “lyrical and immediate” English translation by Elise Magistro (Publishers Weekly). Messina, who died in 1944, was the foremost female practitioner of verismo—the Italian literary realism pioneered by fellow Sicilian Giovanni Verga. Published between 1908 and 1928, Messina’s fiction represents the massive Sicilian immigration to America occurring at that time. The individuals in these stories are caught between the traditions they respect and a desire to move beyond them. Women are shuttered in their houses, virtual servants to their families, left behind while working men immigrate to the United States in fortune-seeking droves. A cultural album that captures the lives of peasant, working-class, and middle-class women, “Messina’s words will leave their mark. Their power makes them impossible to forget” (The Philadelphia Inquirer).

Behind Closed Doors is grounded in the unprecedented national survey of the extent, patterns, and causes of violence in the American family. Based on a study of over 2,000 families, the authors provide landmark insights into this phenomenon of violence and what causes Americans to inflict it on their family members. The authors explore the relationship between spousal abuse and child abuse as well as abuse between siblings, violence by children against their parents, and the causes and effects of verbal abuse. Taken together, their analysis provides a vivid picture of how violence is woven into the fabric of family life and why the hallmark of family life is both love and violence. This is a comprehensive, highly readable account of interest to both the professional and the layperson on an important topic, which concerns the social well-being of us all.

Throughout 17 years of teaching inner-city children Bible through Keeping Hope Alive, I have prayed for the mothers of many children. Looking into the face of a mom whose eyes were black as night, I could feel the trauma she had gone through. Even so, this mom lacked the confidence to say no, and to get out of the abusive situation. Another mom we prayed for had been beaten by her boyfriend many times, even hospitalized. However, she always went back to him. One other mom had been beaten repeatedly by her boyfriend. Some days her arms would be covered with bruises, and she always had a hollow look on her face. I would come in each week to teach Bible for the kids who stayed in this hotel. Over time I noticed small changes, gradually she wanted to read Christian books, and study the Bible more. Soon she was setting boundaries and telling her boyfriend no to things that were not appropriate. Even though her life started changing for the better, she still lacked confidence to move completely forward and out of the grip of the abusive boyfriend. After seeing abuse in the lives of mothers over and over again, lacking the confidence to get out of the dangerous situations in which they found themselves, I decided to write this book. Behind Closed Doors shares stories of women who lived in abusive situations, and how God brought them through it to the other side. It is intended to bring hope to them through the realization that God can and will help them through the circumstances they face. He will give them the confidence to keep walking, to keep saying no, and to keep trusting Him to bring them through to a new life on the other side of abuse.
