Book Reviewers: Janice Romney’s “Beyond the Power of Love” is genuine, engrossing

The author and survivor of abuse shares a harrowing account of domestic violence in her gripping memoir.


“An engrossing and thoughtful examination of abuse and its aftermath.” Kirkus Reviews

In “Beyond the Power of Love: A Woman’s Journey Through Betrayal of Religion and Spousal Abuse” (iUniverse; 2012), author Janice Romney reveals the impact of domestic violence on her life and her journey to healing through the power of love.
The book, which is the revised edition of a memoir first published in 2004, details the author’s long journey of abuse, from when she was just five-years-old to when she married Bobby, a fellow devout Latter-day Saint. Romney also talks about the tumultuous lives of her sons, her prescription pill abuse, and a medical scare involving a brain tumor and nearly died in November 2019. These subjects allow Romney ample space to reflect on the psychological scars of abuse found in herself and her sons. Romney says:
This book reveals the different forms of abuse, the effects, and how we attract relationships that mirror our beliefs about ourselves. Often change is difficult, and at times we become trapped in fear, unable to make important decisions that affect us and also others. Ending the cycle of abuse takes the help of many, but the most important things are prevention, education, intervention and the healing that comes from the power of love.
“This is why I want to publish this book again and write about my experiences as a mother and a woman who has lived through abuse, divorce, marriage, transformation, and fallen dreams, yet knows the healing power of love.”
Readers will sympathize with Romney’s story as her account of abuse will give them the opportunity to put themselves in the author’s shoes and realized the magnitude of the pain she had experienced, especially when she found one of her sons had been sexually abused.
“Beyond the Power of Love” has been well received by readers and book reviewers alike because of the depth of her experience.
“Her harrowing depictions of abuse feature her most powerful writing,” reads a review by Kirkus Reviews. “Thanks to her raw narration, the passages about Bobby’s increasing violence, from cruel words to golf clubs, are both extremely difficult to read and impossible to put down.”
“Romney’s descriptions and conversations of the abuse she and her children suffered are painfully believable,” reads another review by BlueInk Review.
Book reviewers also praise Romney’s writing style. The book, says BlueInk Review, “is written with a genuineness and transparency that seems to indicate first-hand experience.”
“She writes intelligently and passionately about co-dependent relationships and the subjugation of women,” adds Kirkus Reviews.
