This is a book about love and betrayal. Through the eyes of a child, it looks at whether a victim is born or made; offering a unique insight into how easy it is to take control of another. But far from being a depressing and difficult book, it fosters eternal optimism, and a belief that reaches beyond what is ... to what could be. It is about Recovery and Breaking Free. It is a story every woman and every man should read as an education of Life - young women needing to know how to protect themselves, parents wanting to protect their young, those in abusive relationships where hurt is a daily experience, loving partners and husbands desperate to understand their loved one's past; as well as those lucky to have a happy life, whose best friend might turn around one day and say: 'I need help'. Janine has used a lifetime of personal experience of control and abuse to help and support others. She founded LIFELINE, a national registered charity, in 1984 and has worked as an Abuse Consultant.
