5.0 out of 5 stars An honest and mind blowing account of love and control, 4 April 2008
This review is from: God Works for Me Now (Paperback)
I originally purchased this book as I knew the author through her therapeutic work and was curious about the content. I wasn't prepared for the story that unfolded and couldn't put it down until I knew how Jacky's trauma ended.
Her direct and poignant script made me feel I was in the experience with her; I found myself tensing at the prospect of her partner's entrance and unpredictable behaviour. The start of the book introduces the reader to a sample of her partner's delusional rantings; the seeds are sown for the darkness which follows. This is not a book to dip in and out of, unless you have no curiosity or compassion, it compells you to read every last word in an attempt to find answers to this tragic situation.
Anyone struggling to understand why victims of domestic violence stay in relationships should read this book. Jacky was manipulated and controlled by 'Jai' on many levels and was rendered powerless by him. She had many strengths and abilities, yet this relationship nearly destroyed her. Jacky's account reminds us how vulnerable we ALL are; physically, mentally and spiritually. This is a book I will never forget. I wish Jacky and her family a more peaceful future and look forward to the next publication.

To Charlie B, thank you for those words and for your insight, compassion and understanding into my story. My primary reason for writing "God Works for me Now"! was to raise awareness of NPD, a complex and destructive disorder that until recent times has failed to gain its rightful attention in the realms of psychological disease. I also wrote it to help the 'victims' of narcissistic partners believe that there is a 'way out' of their dysfunctional relationship .. without destroying themselves. Your comments can only contribute and assist me in my primary purpose ... and send a message of hope to those stuck in similar relationships, thank you for taking the time to post a review. God bless you, Jacky.
