Survivors Not Statistics
Ms Lurleen Hilliard
Here's the true story of a woman who has refused to be a simple statistic in the world. She and her children where victims of domestic violence, but she decided not to be headline news, another murder victim. She decided to be a survivor. Her story will shock many and amaze others, but ultimately will give a victim of any abuse the courage and strength to escape that existence, and to live his / her life the way they want to.
Physical, mental, and sexual abuse .. drugs, crime, Mafia connections .. fear, affairs, hospitals and alcoholism .. this book contains it all. Of most importance is the information on how to recognize the signs of an abuser, and how to escape from his / her clutches. It doesn't matter how many years you're a victim, one day is too long and 20 years is horrific. The aim is to help others escape, to see that a life of freedom is defiantly worth living and is certainly a lot better than just existing as victim. You're only a victim as long as you let your abuser think that you are theirs to own.
