Have you ever read a book that you started reading in public, but later on couldn’t?!
38, 028,000: The number of women who have experienced physical intimate partner violence in their lifetimes.
I was lucky enough to receive a signed copy of She Can Fly, written by Michael G. Gabel and lived by Kerry Keyes.
Picture this: A young girl finding the man of her dreams who sweeps her off her feet and treats her like a princess. But something happens to his personality one day coming home from work. He’s pissed off and does the unthinkable when she asks how his day went. He slaps her as he’s pissed off. He says sorry and that he’ll never do it again but it does happen again and again. Having to make her do things against the law and threatening to take her children away. Then one day she gets caught and goes through so many struggles and when she does get out and lives her life, she goes under a new identity.
The Main Characters:
*Kerry: a bright smart young woman who got caught up with the wrong guy and had to go through so much things to get her where she is now.
*Wayman: a man who seemed like a gentlemen who doesn’t show his true colors until later and is a ruthless man who doesn’t know when to stop.
Mikey: a young boy that Kerry had babysat and she became his best friend. He plays an important role in this book, but you don’t know when! 😉
How many times have you heard about a domestic violence case and it didn’t make sense that the woman stayed in the relationship? This book goes behind the scenes to show you it’s not always easy to get out. There’s so many things we don’t know about domestic violence cases.
