Broken Wings is the story of Zoe Jesnik and the abuse that she has endured throughout most of her life. Unlike most stories, Zoe's abuse was not within the confines of her family, but rather at the hands of those that she terms as the 'outside world'.
Herein lay the detailed account of her struggle and survival through over eighteen years of physical and verbal abuse. The detrimental treatment that was thrust upon her during her youth led her down a road filled with suicidal fantasies and an almost certain self-destruction. As an adult, Zoe's abuse didn't cease, but rather escalated in an unimaginable series of events that at times nearly cost Zoe her life.
This book will take you on a journey through some of the darkest places in Zoe's life. Through the horrors of domestic violence and rape, you will witness a woman who not only survived but also found the courage to tell her story.From the Author:
Broken Wings is not only the painstaking account of the abuse that I endured for nearly two decades, but should also serve as a hope that we can break the cycle of violence that many of us find ourselves in.
You too can survive to see that brilliant new day when the sky is not only just a shade bluer, but the sun also shines just a little brighter. On this day you will be able to look back on all of your sorrow and with a smile declare, 'I survived'.
