This book has been in print since 1991 and has sold continually in every state of the U.S. and internationally. Includes the author's Bill of Rights for Survivors of Domestic Abuse. The book helps women move beyond being victims to triumphant survivors. Chapters cover what is abuse, the author's story, shame and how it enables abuse, how feelings can be used as guides, how to affirm yourself, how to plan a career, how to set goals, and how to build healthy relationships. The book is written in an easy to understand style and is down to earth and accessible. The companion book included at the end, "There's a Rainbow in my Glass of Lemonade", is a follow-on book of inspirational sayings and affirmations to guide the reader on the path to recovery. This book was revised and improved for the new e-book edition. This special combined edition offers both books together cheaper than if each was purchased separately.
