Well, this is the most wonderful collection of truth on Domestic Violence that has ever been published! Thank you for helping so many. I am one of the women who told her story and I AM A SURVIVOR!
This body of work is not only informative literature, beautiful art, and valuable information, this book also contains nutritional and delicious recipes, along with instructions through exercise and healthy eating how to achieve a positive body image. After reading this book my heart was sadden for the survivors who endured the pain, heart ache, and debilitating acts of violence. However, the sadness turned to joy after reading the victorious overcoming of the survivors. A true testament and outcome of a silver lining when one taps into the inner strength of God through faith and perseverance. Domestic violence is a topic that needs to be addressed and put to an end. Truly an enjoyable read.
I just started this book and so far it's amazing!!! This is truly 1 of the best reads this year, can't wait to finish
As I immersed myself in the book's content I felt empathy for each individual. The detailed informative stories serve as a guide that will imbue each reader and galvanize communities, households, and nations into eradicating domestic violence.

It will inspire you knowing they came forward to telling it with a mission to help others in similar circumstances. So much great information for helping so many.
