Sadly, people living in abusive situations face a shocking reality of life. And these people are people just like you and me.

This is Deborah Thomson's story. How she came to be in an abusive situation and how she regained her strength and self-confidence to leave the abusive situation.

Abuse may be threefold. Firstly, there is the direct abuse by the perpetrator. Secondly, on another level, the suffering can be intensified when there is no remorse by the abuser. Thirdly, an often ignored area, is the judgment of others. When friends, family or the general public find out about the abuse and judge the sufferer for either staying with the abuser or leaving.

Thomson explains how someone can find themself in an abusive situation and then how, with compassion and support from others, they can regain their dignity and life.

This is compelling reading for everyone to understand how vulnerable we all are and the signs to watch for.

Everyone should read this book.


This raw and emotional memoir was extremely informative and enlightening. The author has successfully conveyed the depths of the human spirit and our extraordinary ability to survive. Her deeply unsettling and unfiltered recounts demonstrate the reality of domestic violence, and the heartbreaking notion that this is an issue that many don't understand, or believe is a problem within our society. I recommend this book for everyone, share it with as many as possible. Spread this vital information.



Confronting and incredible survival.


This book is very confronting but is a must read for anyone who has or is in a violent relationship. Deborah's diary entries are so raw and heartbreaking.
