PRLog - Aug. 1, 2011 - BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -- The inspiration for this fictional work came from real life experiences. Deception and dishonesty have many faces. Being unjustly accused of theft brought back many memories of betrayal from our heroine’s past. These memories were the catalyst for writing this book. Domestic violence is not pretty, but her story is worth sharing. What she endured could happen to anyone. She lived to tell it…many women don’t.
