Description

From the Back Cover

“Domestic violence has been glossed over, set aside, and quite honestly ignored for years. Dr. Ramona is a picture of courage, willing to be vulnerable and transparent through her own painful past in an effort to lift others out of their current dark reality.”
–from foreword by Ray McElroy, former NFL player and Chicago Bears chaplain

Are you or someone you love . . .

* Keeping secrets about your relationship because you feel ashamed or fear no one will believe you?
* Isolating yourself from family or friends?
* Permitting yourself to be treated with disrespect, disregard, or disdain?
* Minimizing or making excuses for an intimate partner’s harmful behavior?
* Feeling afraid of your intimate partner?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you may be in an abusive relationship.
