The Purpose of the Book

The reason Tara wrote this book, is that she understands that when suffering from domestic violence it is easier said than done to leave the partner. Domestic abuse can affect the mind, body and soul, and indeed it distorts the identity of self. The aim of writing this book is to encourage other victims to be empowered when making the decision to leave.

Domestic violence impacts people from all backgrounds. The power of how domestic violence takes over your life can impact anyone, no matter what their cultural background, professional status or socio - economic background.

She wrote this book with two leading professionals, so not only was it her personal story told, but professional insights were included to enable people to leave their abusive partners and never return. Finally, she believes that each one of us deserves a relationship where we are respected, loved, appreciated, supported and enhanced and where abuse of any form has no home. For home is where you should feel the safest and have a true sense of belonging.
