We are in November and have said goodbye to October which was Domestic Violence Awareness Month. I was certainly kept busy and I know many of you followed the journey. BUT, awareness doesn’t end after the month of October, it has to keep going. Which is why I am hosting a sale for the eBook version of Clipped Wings, 99p for one week.
The silent chorus.
Just imagine you thought that you had met the man or woman of your dreams. This person was charming and you thought they were the one or perhaps that this was fate; it was just meant to be.
But as the months go by things start to change. Their behaviour towards you isn’t the same, they are more critical, more particular about your appearance, what you do, how you do
it, who you see. Time goes by and you feel isolated from your friends and family because that behaviour has now changed to threats, maybe violence and you feel that your identity is all
but gone. But still you stay. Where would you go? Who would help you? You are not worthy.
But you are.
A group of survivors have spoken about their own experiences. In their own words they show that survivors do have a voice and that it needs to be heard. They show that abuse isn’t unique or strange but that it is, unfortunately, a surprisingly
common problem in today’s society.
The message of this book is one of courage, as with courage comes awareness and an ability to understand what has happened to you and take the steps needed to become a survivor yourself.
Most recent review
I went into reading this prepared for an uneasy read. We are all aware to some degree of domestic abuse wether it be from news or television. Let me tell you I been quite naive to assume that domestic abuse is just physical. It comes in many forms. This book has been a real eye opener, my heart goes out to each and everyone that contributed and I say to you thank you for sharing your story. For helping me learn and for allowing me to help in spreading the awareness. I would recommend everyone to read this as hard as it is too read the importance of it is so much more.
