Raised near New Orleans as one of six children, Dorothy Newton was surrounded by abuse and poverty as she grew up. But she became the first in her family to graduate from college and moved out of poverty. She then began to live out her dreams in Dallas of a better home and life when she married celebrity superstar football player Nate Newton. She had gone from poverty to the pinnacle of success. She was married to a handsome, successful, famous professional athlete, who was a three time Super Bowl Champion and six time Pro-Bowler for the Dallas Cowboys.
But all that glittered was not gold.
Before long the relationship turned abusive. She found herself living in the world she thought she had escaped in her years growing up. The world did not see her suffering behind closed doors—she was betrayed, treated abusively, threatened continually. Dorothy was trapped with no one to talk to and nowhere to run. In this book Dorothy shares her experiences of pain, loss, survival, hope, recovery, and victory. A gripping story throughout, A Silent Cry is a testament to Dorothy’s will to live and the peace that comes with hope in the God who sees and hears your tears—even when no one else does.

Both the good and the bad we read in this story occur beneath the covering of God’s grace, which is the bedrock of Dorothy’s strength. In fact, this book is more than a story; it is a witness and full evidence of human capability. Every man should read this biography.

Powerful. Straightforward. Honest. Brave. These are words I use to describe Dorothy Newton. When I first met her, I knew immediately there was a spiritual strength about her that was uncommon. However, it wasn’t until she dared to share the story of Silent Cry with me that I fully understood how her ability to overcome personal pain had been shaped by her passion for Jesus. Dorothy chose in the midst of isolation and relational deprivation to turn her tears into floods of victory. She shares the truth of her personal story in a way that reveals hope for anyone difficult circumstances, unhealthy relationships, or even devastating loss. It is rare to find such honesty and hope in the same place. If you’ve ever wondered how you are going to make it, this book is for you.
