White Sorrow is a gritty, harrowing, true story about one woman’s journey through a marriage so oppressing, so confidence draining and so shocking in today’s modern society.

When well-travelled Andrea comes to the UK to visit her family, she does not expect to meet a man. However, she does and swept along with the romance of it all, she marries him in a whirlwind affair.

What follows is a torrent of verbal abuse, emotional cruelty and domestic violence.

Andrea suffered for five years and White Sorrow follows the marriage through periods of starvation, cruelty and poverty.

The story tells of a woman suddenly on her own, with little support and a fear so great, she forgot who she was.

Luckily for Andrea she remembers her inner strength and her confidence – she fights back and today has survived to tell her tale.

The book will stir every emotion. It will make you count your lucky stars, or make you realise your life doesn’t have to be that way.

“I read White Sorrow in two days. I just could not put it down. And now I feel passionate about her cause and why she has written this book. Andrea Aviet deserves a voice…and in White Sorrow she can be clearly heard and can help others!”
