Barnes, Ph.D. The thread that runs through Thorns is that horrendous spousal abuse and scintillating good sex are intertwined in thirteen black marriages that span the inner city to corporate America. Each of the thirteen black women describes the multiple types of spousal abuse she experiences in her marriage, why she accepts the scourge, and ways the marriage ends or stays intact- further, the women give advice, based on their own spousal abuse experiences. The first benefit of this book is to illustrate for black women--teenagers, young adults, and adults--the surefire signs of abusive young and older black men and, therefore, present the keys to avoiding abusive dates, potential marriage partners, and spouses. The second benefit is to help women live free from dating and spousal abuse. Finally, the book tells how to end abusive behavior in black men, which will make more men acceptable to black women.
