Domestic abuse: our stories
There is a misconception in our society about abuse. My intent with this book is to select some accounts of abuse to show that these things can and do happen in a lot of families, not just to the poor and uneducated. We get to enter these households and see that these women don't instigate these attacks, nor do they enjoy them. These women deserve to be heard and we need to listen. Domestic abuse is in the papers every day. Maybe this book will give women the courage to leave their abusers and help us to better understand this growing problem. My hope is that these stories stay with my readers long after they put the book down.
