Four wives, three dead, one survived this is her story

This story is about a women who endured 25 years, 2 months, 1 day & 15 hours of abuse from someone who said he loved her. At the age of 42, she was put out of her house by her husband to survive on her own to raise her children as a single parent. The purpose of this book is to provide the warning signs- three pages of them. The secret to avoiding domestic violence is knowing the warning signs. I hope to save other women from going through what my family went through. Domestic violence not only affects the spouse, but it also affects the little victims, the damage on the children of domestic violence is devastating. Children learn what they live. The book travels through the author's life from age 1-65 years. Describing different instances of not only the abuse in her life, but in the lives of the three women who did not survive. The book also tells of the author's grandmother who was also a victim at the same age of 42, on Mother's Day 1926, her only option was suicide, leaving eight children and herself eight months pregnant with her ninth child. The book tells how I was able to survive because of the options victims have today with the laws to help victims and punish the perpetrators. Domestic violence is the #1 killer and injury to women, more than muggings, rapes and accidents combined. The purpose of my book is to try to greatly decrease the incidents of injuries and deaths to women and children who suffer in domestic violent relationships and enlighten women to the fact that there is hope for a brighter future. The best revenge is to do well. The perpetrator always thinks and makes you think that you won't survivewithout them.
