I SURVIVED domestic violence and stalking
A young woman trapped in a marriage and manipulated into submission by a violent husband.
Just because someone dresses nicely, doesn’t mean the person is nice. Just because someone says I love you, doesn’t always mean that it’s true. These are some of the lessons the author Terri Ryan had learnt about while enduring a violent marriage with a narcissist husband.
This book describes the true events and a sad story of a young women who in 1979 thought she had met the man of her dreams. It’s a story of the emotional and physical violence, and the verbal abuse she suffered at the hands of a Monster. The story speaks of the struggle she had trying to protect herself and her children with a legal system that didn’t recognise domestic violence as a crime. It also tells of a young woman’s escape and the terror she suffered while being stalked by a vengeful narcissist. However, it is also a story of survival. It tells of how a young and innocent woman turned her life around to help others who also were suffering from abuse and domestic violence.
