In a world where the WHO recently reported that 1 in 3 Women worldwide are victims of violence, I hope this book is a crucial opening for women to tell their personal stories on the devastating emotional, physical, financial, and spiritual impact of Interpersonal Violence on their and their children's lives. This visceral, harrowing, and haunting tale, bears witness to the often inescapable 'violence trap' set by families, religion, the justice system, and social constructs that women fall (or are pushed) into. And which is often followed by the devastating emotional trap of internalizing that violence. The author, with raw, emotional honesty holds little back and allows us to live through the terror, horror, and devastation of her personal experience. Throughout, and against all odds, it is that same honesty of self and spirit that burns beneath the surface, is unbelievably never extinguished, and carries her to salvation. The voice is unique, personal, and empowering. You will not be the same. Read to understand what the women in your life (your sisters, friends, mothers) experience, and for inspiration to survive your own trials. Then speak your own story. This voice should be joined in chorus. This voice will ring in your ears for years to come.
