Years of Tears

Maxine Browne’s first marriage was volatile. Her playboy husband became a drug addict, selling cocaine to support his habit. After six crazy years, she divorced him.

Then, one failed marriage and two kids later, Maxine met a minister who she thought was the answer to her prayers. Instead, he turned out to be her worst nightmare. He was a controlling tyrant.

He cut her off from her friends and family, including her children. He took control of every aspect of her life…the mail, the phone, transportation and money, to name a few. By the end of 10 years, there was nothing left for Maxine to lose but her life. Years of Tears shares her family’s story of this life-shattering experience, her courageous escape and their journey of recovery.
