An estimated 80 percent of domestic abuse victims remain silent, suffocated by fear and relentless self-doubt. For Taylor, it was the threat of financial ruin and finding herself alone with her young daughter that kept her tethered to her volatile husband. But after a ferocious roundhouse punch from Russell fractured her face, resulting in reconstructive surgery, she finally made the brave decision to walk away from a man she loved and a legacy of physical abuse that she first encountered as a child and that haunted her throughout her adulthood.

A far better and more interesting read than anyone who watched the author on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (RHoBH) might suspect. It always helps when you have an interesting story to tell and the author, Taylor Armstrong, does. Sad and interesting. If you followed her story on RHoBH you will probably enjoy reading her back story and the details of her relationship with her abusive husband. I actually found the read to be quite compelling and that's something I hadn't expected to be able to say.

I have never watched a "THE REAL HOUSEWIVES.." of wherever show before. I chose this book without knowing who this lady was. It wasn't until after I finished this book, that I found some clips on youtube of the show she was on.

I mainly picked up this book because I could relate to her situation. I had been in a relationship where I felt emotionally controlled by the guy, but luckily I got out.
