By Nathan I. Richards on September 22, 2005
Format: Paperback
Escaping the Shadows captivated my attention and expanded my understanding, and it will do the same for you.

This book illustrates the amazing tale of one woman's personal quest for peace and solidarity in her life. Lisa J. Peck does an outstanding job giving the reader a glimpse into the life of Charlene, an LDS middle-aged woman with several kids, blazing a trail of hope and courage through an abusive marriage, subsequent divorce, single motherhood and reentry into the 'dating world.'

It should be noted that though this book deals with mature issues of domestic violence, divorce, health issues and internet dating, it is surprisingly upbeat and will leave you with a positive feeling of accomplishment for the main character. It may not be suitable for younger readers.

As an adult male and husband, I was not sure what to expect when I began reading it, but I am glad that I did. It opened my eyes to serious topics generally not mentioned in LDS circles, though they apply to us as much as they do to the nation. My wife and I both were amazed at the accuracy with which the book describes the physical as well as mental and emotional trauma one can suffer in abusive relationships. Someone close to us recently went through a similar trial in her life, and it was uncanny to see the similarities between her experience and the book.

Escaping the Shadows is a must-read for singles and married couples alike. It was both enlightening as to serious matters, yet fun and uplifting so as to enjoy.

Format: Paperback
Ms.Peck has done a fantastic job of helping the reader to not only understand the mind of the abused . . . but what friends and family can do to help and what the abused can do to escape the situation. It is marvelous in helping single women to watch for the signs that will lead to an abusive relationship. Domestic violence is prevalent in our society, and Ms. Peck takes us through a fictional journey of a woman emerging from the shadows, into the terrifying world of dating and finding true love once again. This is a must read by every man, woman and child in the world if one hopes to prevent from being sucked into a relationship like or hopes to fight free of one.
