When a woman is physically beaten, everyone knows. But how do you know when she experiences emotional bruises and battery? Which one of your friends right now suffers from the emotional lashing of a tongue? Although the wounds may not appear visible to the naked eye; they still have real physical effects. The Enemy Within tells the story of a survivor. One who beat the odds and broke free, before her abuser broke her. Simchah is not only a strong woman, she is more than a conqueror. Although seasoned by time and worn down by life, she is a warrior who endured many wounds on the battlefield of life. This story picks up where most stories end. Simchah entrusts her young granddaughter, Zaharah, with her hard-learned life-truths, in hopes Zaharah may learn from her mistakes. Through Simchah’s journals, Zaharah takes a painful walk down memory lane and witnesses the emotional abuse her grandmother endured. Simchah's ethnographic chronicles of her abusive marriage reveal, although she saw the signs of abuse early in her relationship, she did not recognize them until they grew and ultimately blew up in her face. After reading her grandmother’s journals, Zaharah sees her grandmother, and the world around her, from a refreshed and informed perspective and in a whole new light of lived truths.

Whether young or old, to be a woman means to love yourself by carrying yourself with class and dignity while learning to understand how to balance being strong and independent with knowing when to allow a worthy man to lead. We must also realize that “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:30-31
