Hi  Julia, I finally had a chance to sit down and read your book.  I started it yesterday, and I couldn't put it down. I love the way it is written.  I couldn't believe all the things you experienced both good and bad. It seems like the events you only see in the movies. I endorse it and advertise it to other people.  It  is a must read! 

Thank you, Franchette Padrigon

A National Crisis


Domestic Violence has been around since the beginning of time, but in today’s world it has become so rampant that nearly everyone in the United States has been personally affected by it in some way. This scourge is heartbreaking, but help is available.  It is vital to get out the word that resources are available to victims.  We must not be silent!   

The strong connection between addiction and domestic violence is obvious. The havoc wreaked upon innocent children is inexcusable.
