Flight of the Dancing Bird is Tanjas Darke's remarkable and moving account of her life, told in her own words. It is a story of enormous courage and triumph over appalling adversity. Remarkably, she has survived and has found the strength to write about her experiences in this powerful and balanced autobiography. With honesty and inspirational courage she offers a rare insight into the reality of dominance and mind games played by abusers. More importantly she shows how the cycle can be broken and the abuser brought to justice. In a final chapter she relives her father's trial and describes her feelings while giving evidence against him. Tanjas Darke is now in her forties. A gem carver by profession she has, at the time of publication of this book, returned to Europe. There, she, her husband and her many pets are enjoying life to the full and are finally happily settled. This extraordinary - yet ultimately positive story, was made into a documentary by ''Greenstone Pictures.com'' with the aim to give other abuse victims a message of hope while also providing a rare insight into a situation that seems incomprehensible. "To Hell and Back: Tanjas'' Story" has now been shown around the world, including Poland, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, United Kingdom and New Zealand.
