Hazardous to My Health: The Marlboro Man I Knew

Author:  Marcia N. Hill

Publisher:  Oak Ridge Publishing, 2010
Pages:  147
Source:  I received this book from the author in exchange for a review.  This in no way affects the  opinions expressed in this review.

Marcia Hill has written a compelling story about her life with an extremely abusive man.  Having never been in her situation I sat back and read the book and wondered why she had not taken her kids and left her abuser.  I realized as I  continued to read that her choices were taken away from her.  I felt terrible for both her and her children to have lived such a terrifying lifestyle.  The book was so interesting I put it away in just a couple of hours.  It is one I will definitely recommend to my friends.


  1. Even tho it's `Hazardous to my health` the cover looks relaxing. I would love to be there.

  2. I agree. But it is very fitting. The islands of Hawaii are very serene looking yet it took a violent action to build them. The same goes for this book.
