Book Excerpt

The shoves, the slaps, the pulling of hair, etc. were becoming more frequent. Once again, I was reliving my childhood, except I was my mom, the one person I swore I would never be. And just like my mom, I told no one....The final straw was the day he deliberately threw my toothbrush in the toilet and put my head in the commode to "fetch the toothbrush"...I knew then I had to get away from him. He was going to kill me.
