About the Author:

Dmitriev is the author of four novels: An Heiress's Dilemma, the story of a romance between a downtrodden man and caring woman who tries to help the homeless against the wishes of a cold-hearted uncle who wants the poor swept under a bureaucratic rug; Five Magic Words, the love story of a successful illustrator and a widowed scientist who are kept apart by a malicious stepmother; Lori, Runaway Wife, a moving tale of a battered wife who escapes her abusive husband for a life of freedom with a man she is afraid to love because of her dark past; and Stolen Bride, a drama set in an Amish community that begins to unfold when a young Amish woman goes missing and only one young Amish man knows where she is really "hidden away."

Review:

Lori, Runaway Wife is a book you can't put down.  Dmitriev's excellent description of the characters and scenes surrounding them, you can almost feel you are there.  Lori is a battered wife.  She never knows when an attack may occur and for what.  But she knows what she must do to stop them.  Follow Lori's journey to a new and exciting world where the past is no longer a part of her life.  Be with her when she and Ian fall in love and she must confess something.

Testimony: "I recommend this book to my psychology students because it deals with domestic violence."

Lori, Runaway Wife is a gripping novel that not only provides exciting reading material but also contains several pointers toward escape for anyone trapped in a bad marriage, especially one poisoned by physical and emotional abuse.

It was fun reading Lori, Runaway Wife but I also was impressed with the author's skill at weaving in values and life lessons into the fast-moving and exciting plot. I read it at home and my wife read it on vacation and we both found it to be moving, meaningful and worthwhile.
