Cycles Of Hatred: Will He? by Linda Heavner Gerald
What is wrong with some men? They believe they love women while they say inappropriate things. Maybe in their mind, there are thoughts of violence or depravity. These individuals are misogynists.
Misogyny is the hatred of, contempt for, or prejudice against women or girls. Misogyny is manifest in numerous ways, including social exclusion, sex discrimination, hostility, androcentrism, and patriarchy…Wikipedia
Laura’s twin brother was one. The family knew for years that he harbored mean feelings toward his sister. Lars’ father had talks with him as he begged that he change his ways, but the boy couldn’t do it. Eventually, he was sent away to Phillips Academy. Keeping the twins apart helped but when they were together, the same behavior surfaced. What was the answer?
Laura loved Lars deeply even though he treated her with disrespect. Eventually, his actions demonstrated the most depraved and extreme misogyny on record. How could a twin brother hate his sister this much?
Cycles of Hatred: Will He? By Linda Heavner Gerald is a compelling, engaging and awe-inspiring, mild drama, in which readers will fully enjoy – unable to put down. The plot is based on the premise of the male misogynist and the terrible impact they have on the women they hate.
The story follows the lives of two twins, Laura and Lars. However, it is told from the view point of Laura, whom Lars has always mistreated, undermined and loathed. Laura was always fearful of Lars, what he might say or do to her, in order to crush her spirit and loving, trusting heart. When Laura and Lars’ wealthy parents die in a tragic accident, the ten year old twins are separated and sent to live apart from one another. Laura goes to live with her, loving and sophisticated, Aunt Sophia in Italy, while Lars is sent to a boarding school. But even though they were separated, Laura’s memories of Lars’ treatment of, and hatred for, her never left her heart, nor her mind. Through the grace and love of God, and her dependence on Him, Laura was able to forgive her brother, and continue to always love him.
