With a section devoted to re-telling her experiences with domestic violence in story format, Strangers with Familiar Faces is a unique and lively collection of thoughts, prose, poetry, and speculation. It is one of Jennifer-Crystal Johnson's missions to expose the widespread and secretive nature of domestic violence, how common it is, and what victims go through during their relationships with abusers as well as the recovery and often permanent emotional and mental damage.
If children are involved, it often becomes ten times worse for victims as they not only have to heal themselves, but also have to help their children heal. There is life after domestic violence, and this collection allows that life to shine through, getting the reader past the pain and dragging them into the joy that waits on the other side.
Sometimes, the stranger is the person in the mirror. Only you can re-discover yourself and your strength.
With cover art by Malinda Ayers Cooper, this collection of art and poetry gives the soul a stage and the mind an insight into life, identity, and self-perception.
