Are you BeLIEVing, or will you BeLEAVEing? Have you ever wished you had a small guidebook that would give you the information to recognize potential danger, safely plan an escape or know how to reach out to a friend or loved one who is a victim of domestic violence? It's here.

Many people often look for a safety exit plan, how to pack an escape bag, ways to prepare to safely leave an abusive relationship. They want a quick reference of red flags pointing to a potential (or existing) environment that may lead to domestic violence. How do you care for the children? How do you train them to react when the madness breaks loose? Do you know about establishing safety code words or phrases with the children, with your family or friends? With your employer? Are you BeLIEVing you can soon BeLEAVEing?

How often do victims wish they knew more about obtaining a restraining order, but are too frightened because they don't know the nuts and bolts of acquiring one? How will they pay for legal assistance? Are they aware there are free services available to those who should safely BeLEAVEing? It's in the book—in detailed, simple to understand terms.

Carolyn Hennecy's second book, BeLEAVEing is nothing like her first book, ORANGE BLOSSOM WISHES: Child Molested, Woman Abused—Her Victorious Journey to Freedom, which contained her memoirs. ORANGE BLOSSOM WISHES tells Carolyn's story of being sexually molested from the age of 7 until 15. At the age of 18 she entered into an abusive marriage that started with emotional and verbal abuse, culminating in physical violence. Carolyn wanted to create a guidebook for victims and struggling survivors. BeLEAVEing is a meat and potatoes kind of book. It is the sort of book she wished had existed when she was enduring 16 years of abuse and domestic violence. It's long past time for such a book as this. Keep your eyes open. Don't wait until it's too late to BeLEAVEing.

Are you or a loved one a victim of domestic violence? Does your partner verbally or physically abuse you? Don't become a statistic: EVERY 9 SECONDS a woman is battered by a spouse or intimate partner. Many do not realize they are actual victims of domestic violence. Others want to know how to leave safely.

BeLEAVEing tells you about:
• Emotional abuse─the starting point of all domestic violence
• The red flags of domestic violence
• Why she doesn't "just leave"
• How family or friends can help victims of domestic violence
• Preparing a safety plan and escape bag prior to leaving
• Obtaining a Restraining Order
• Safe dating to avoid abusive relationships
