A Marked Woman, is based on a true story of a husband's betrayal. It takes place in central Pennsylvania when Naomi Bryar awakens in a mental institution. Trapped behind closed doors her attempt to escape fails. She fights back as attendants force a strait jacket over her head, pull her arms tight across her chest and drag her to a padded cell. Exhausted she lay helpless on the matted floor. Sobbing till her voice is but a whisper she recalls her early years during the 1929 Depression, the happy times raising her two children in the Pennsylvania woods, and the difficulties World War II brought about during her 23 years of marriage. Naomi did her best to follow her religious up-bringing. There were many twists and turns during her 43 years of life, but what did she do so wrong that landed her here? ?In Joan Foor's gripping novel, A Marked Woman, we relive a time in recent history when a philadering husband could commit his wife to a life of torture, a time when mis-diagnosis was rampant and straight jackets and shock therapy were accepted medical "treatments." We share a daughter and son's frustration, knowing the truth about their father's mistress, yet unable to rescue their mother. The story grabs and does not let go, and the charming 1940's romance of the fated couple only makes the outcome more painful. A haunting, unforgettable must read.--Kathryn Jordan, Author of Hot Water, Gladys and Capone, In The Time of Apricots, and The Sins of Esther Mary."The author has poured out her heart in this gut-wrenching story based on her mother's tortured life."-Cynda Thomas, author of He Came From The Sky, Hell of A Ride, and new release The WASP and the HORNET.
