Love Gone Wrong
Living Happily Ever After as Survivors of Abuse
Throughout Love Gone Wrong, the familiar fairy tale, Cinderella, is used to outline and tell the unfamiliar journey of a victim who repressed years of childhood sexual abuse.
Laurel Bahr’s step-by-step account of discovery, opposition, and lessons learned is interwoven with the “behind closed-door” stories of two friends who were ultimately inspired to follow in her footsteps. Their remarkable journey highlights the power of close, authentic, long-term relationships and proves that change is possible, dreams do come true if one only believes. With the goal to inspire and offer hope to victims, their families, and those who care about them, Love Gone Wrong chronicles the stereotypical aspects of emotional, verbal, sexual, and physical abuse. Clinical insights from a psychologist and other health professionals occur at key junctures to explain, validate, and support their experiences.
