From the Author

I suppose the first thing you should know about this story is that while it is fiction, it's based on my family's experience with domestic violence. My great grandmother migrated to Chicago from the south with her nine children at the request of an abusive husband. She didn't divorce him and I doubt she ever fought back. They were married for about thirty years when he finally passed away. 

Second--I never wanted to write it. I'd been writing about Pecan's daughters for close to three years, convinced that I would never pen their mother's story. It was too tragic. I didn't want the details of Pecan's experience in my head. Instead I wanted to focus on the amazingly strong women that she brought into this world.

Eventually, I realized that what I was running from was important. That we as a society, as women, needed to face this--the abuse and the resentment we have towards its victims. The most common question people pose is "why didn't she leave?" How about "what's wrong with him?" Or even "did he get any jail time?"

So, my hope is that How to Knock a Bravebird from Her Perch will help people better understand women in violent relationships. They may seem like helpless victims. They may even feel like it themselves. But victims of abuse shouldn't be expected to be perfect in order to get out of the situation.  And while every woman should leave an abusive relationship it's never as simple as walking out the door.
