Rate this:

What are the causes of wife abuse? How can victims renew their lives? How can friends and professionals help?

This book recounts the spiritual journey of five women as they move from childhood into abusive marriages, and then out into self-realization and freedom. The women share their thoughts and feelings about themselves, their abusers, and God. We witness their anguish and despair, their courage and humour, their hope and rebirth.

These five portraits interleave discussions of wife abuse in clinical, cultural, and religious contexts. We see the forms that abuse takes, the dynamics that spawn violence, and the attitudes toward women in religious ideologies. The book offers practical advice for those who have experienced abuse, and for their friends and counsellors.
