Overview

During her almost-final moments when Kiara is pinned down by a man who claims to love her, fighting to breathe, her life at the mercy of her husband, she repeatedly begs him, "Please don't kill me. My parents need me."

Even in today's #MeToo era, with women and men sharing their stories of assault and abuse, the topic of domestic abuse is still obscured, especially in the South Asian community. Stuck in this vicious and confusing cycle, Kiara, a member of that community, seeks the strength to challenge patriarchy as she begins to recognize the pretenses of the "white picket fence" dream, where marriage and children are the only measure of happiness and prosperity, and dares to defy it. Her Brave Journey serves as a powerful message to victims and survivors of abuse, in particular South Asian women who battle societal and cultural pressures every day. Go inside the life of Kiara and follow her brave journey as she reclaims her life and discovers her inner warrior.

About the Author

Swati Singh has always loved writing as a way of expressing herself. Her previous blog (mscynicism.com) covered her unconventional opinions on thought-provoking topics with intelligence, sarcasm, and sass. Her Brave Journey, Swati's first novel, is a fictionalized account of the stories Swati has gathered from others and is sharing with the hope of providing a voice to anyone that has not yet found the courage to speak. Swati was born in Bihar, India, and immigrated with her family to the United States in 1985 where she grew up in the Washington, DC Metropolitan area. She holds a master's degree in human resource management from the University of Maryland. She is currently a senior recruiter at Navy Federal Credit Union.
