In her book A Silent Scream author and entrepreneur Patricia Yarbrough shares the pain and heartache that a grieving mother suffers through after the loss of a child. Despite her outwardly successful life, the thoughts that her son her friend gone forever piloted Patricia on a self-destructive journey. In a declining state of health, Patricia's anguish over her sons death propagated her loss from one son to a husband and four other children.
"Grieving is hard enough, to have to do it alone is even harder. As it is you feel no one understands how you feel, no cares", says Patricia.
The book was painful to write, and even though it took her six years to complete, Patricia was compelled and obligated for her story to be heard. When asked about the title, Patricia said, "When you lose a child, especially to murder, the intense pain (grief) it hurts so bad deep down in your heart, and can last a lifetime. Everyone tells you it's time to move on, that you should be over your loss. So you hide your grief (scream) inside".
When someone is murdered, the death comes without warning. A parent might watch a game with a child on a Sunday afternoon -- and then never see or hold or speak to that child again. Each member of a family is likely to grieve differently, creating a potential for conflict. Siblings of the victim may feel neglected by their parents or suddenly overprotected. Spouses may be unable to give each other support when it is needed most.
Hundreds of books have been published that follow murderers along their paths of destruction. And yet just a handful of books have looked at murder from the victim’s survivors perspective. A Silent Scream pays homage to the survivors.
Patricia Yarbrough is a highly sought-after speaker for grief support organizations. After several successful years as a Healthcare Manager, Patricia decided to follow her passion and write full-time.

Hi Patricia, I have heard of you before somewhere. I send out my deepest, heartfelt condolences to you on the loss of your son. That has to be every mother's worst nightmare. I admire your strength, resilience, and courage to write about it. We share something in common as far as being victims of childhood abuse, and domestic violence; as well as a passion for writing.
My passion is poetry, and my first book "VICTIM! VICTORIOUS!" was recently released. I would love it if you visited my page, and read my prize winning poem "LOVE YOU TO DEATH". It's the one I entered into my first poetry contest, and won the Grand Prize, a publishing package.
I hope to keep in touch with you!~Peace & Blessings!~Antoinette
