The author does paints a realistic picture of the cycle that is domestic abuse and just as important, that victims or rather survivors often find themselves in situations similar to that which they had already worked so hard to escape. Their vulnerability makes them an easy target for abusers.
So while this book is not what I expected when I began reading, I'm glad I did read it as it serves as reminder that abusive relationships can leave both physical and psychological scars.
