A Safe Place for Women tells a harrowing, but ultimately hopeful, story of one woman's ordeal with an abusive husband and how she gained the strength to leave him and thrive in a new life with her children. Noted women's advocate Kelly White unsparingly revisits the dark periods of her husband's irrational, violent moods. Her narrative makes clear why women often stay in such situations--and also how to end them. After each section of personal narrative, White discusses strategies, legal options, and supportive organizations to help abuse victims overcome the many problems that accompany abuse. White also includes compelling stories of other survivors of domestic violence and a comprehensive list of helping resources.
