Library Journal - Library Journal
Schwartz, founder and president of Educating Against Domestic Violence (EADV), presents an enlightening and sometimes shocking account of domestic abuse. In the first part, she candidly relates her trials with her physically and emotionally abusive ex-husband and discusses her innermost feelings regarding the abuse she tolerated for years before seeking help. The second part recounts her journey to recovery through therapy and her determination to understand the underlying causes of her behavior. That the healing process is ongoing is emphasized and illustrated in the last section. This book took a lot of courage to write, and one hopes it will be an inspiration to those in similar situations. Schwartz successfully fulfills her purpose of explaining why people allow themselves to be continually abused and why they can't leave their abusers. A self-help resources list is included. Recommended for mental health practitioners and popular psychology collections in public libraries.--Elizabeth Goeters, Roswell, GA Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.\
