Hallie's Story: Profile of a Battered Woman

Overview

Although Hallie's Story is presented as fiction, that doesn't mean it isn't true-at least in the broadest sense. Hallie is a battered woman, a victim of severe abuse, who lives her life as if she is two different women: one, the wife of a professional man with everything that anyone could wish for; the other, a frightened, submissive, obedient wife who knows that, at any moment, her domineering husband could end her life and claim that she committed suicide. No one would doubt such a well-known family man and ...

Overview

Although Hallie's Story is presented as fiction, that doesn't mean it isn't true-at least in the broadest sense. Hallie is a battered woman, a victim of severe abuse, who lives her life as if she is two different women: one, the wife of a professional man with everything that anyone could wish for; the other, a frightened, submissive, obedient wife who knows that, at any moment, her domineering husband could end her life and claim that she committed suicide. No one would doubt such a well-known family man and pillar of the community. She is a woman trapped with no place to run and no one to turn to. Hallie's Story is a fictionalized narrative of domestic violence blended with professional commentary and advice. Targeted to the victims of abuse, as well as mental health, medical, and other professionals, this book puts an authentic face on the cycle of abuse. Through scenes designed to read much like a novel, readers follow Hallie and her husband Roger through the early stages of their relationship to the point at which Hallie finally gathers the strength to leave her abuser and begin a new life alone with her child.

In addition to Hallie's story, there are sections at the end of each chapter that provide psychological insight into the dynamics of the relationship as the narrative unfolds. These sections provide "mini" therapy sessions useful for both victims of domestic violence and the professionals dedicated to helping them. The book introduces the Lifetime Messages Blueprint Inventory (LMBI), a tool created to help clients understand the unconscious messages that motivate their choices and behavior. The LMBI gives insight to both the victim and the professionals working with her, helping them to understand the challenges she faces. The book also gives statistics about domestic violence, warning signs and characteristics of a potentially abusive partner, a plan of safety for the victim and her children, resources, and suggested reading. Hallie's Story provides a unique look at domestic violence, and sheds light on the family dynamics that allow these destructive situations to develop in the first place, as well as the emotional climate that allows abuse to continue. The book offers hope, however, because readers will see that Hallie finds the courage to leave her abuser and begin a new life.
