Leaving domestic abuse is not just the act of walking out the door; it’s the long process of preparing to escape and the even longer process of recovery. This memoir honestly shares how, burdened by her own failures, the author leaves an abuser and dares to transform from abused to powerful, beautiful, and wise.

Using narrative non-fiction to share her story, the author also offers approaches to recovery in simple analytical style. Abuse is a battle for control by skilled players over unaware targets, regardless of gender, race, culture, or age. This book speaks to anyone trapped in that battle.
