    Behind Close Doors. My advice to women is to pay attention to the signs that abuse is around the corner. If a man is violent, ready to fight, or scares you in any way—that’s a Red Flag.

    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.

    Incredible read! This book will do two things: 1. It will rip your heart out realizing these are the true stories of the incredible brutality and cruelty these women endured. 2. 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. A must read for anyone going through an abusive relationship. The book's beautiful cover is just like many abusive relationships, pretty on the outside, but the pain and suffering are hidden, as in the pages of this awesome book.
