  1. Can you please let us know your opinion of the book as a whole, when you’ve finished it? And have you read the book “To be a shelter in the storm”? It’s another book for those who are supporting survivors of DV. I haven’t yet had a chance to read either of them and would like your comments and comparisons. We could put your recommendations on our resources page at A Cry For Justice cryingoutforjustice.wordpress.com
    Thanks!

    And yes, that quote is fantastic.
    talk about having your head in the sand… it’s more like having your head buried deep in the magma of the earth, below the tectonic plates that form the earth’s crust.

  2. I Love that, “having your head in the sand…more like having your head buried deep in the magma of the earth”, Wonder what the stats are for money that is raised for abused puppies vs abused women in the year 2012…just wondering. Why is it easier to look the other way for a woman and her kids but not for a puppy? Not that I don’t like puppies too ;)

    Goodness, “To be a shelter in the storm” sounds familiar, do you know the author? I am drawing a blank. I keep thinking that book was by Elaine Weiss as well?

    I read the above book by Elaine Weiss cover to cover with many notes. I would absolutely leave comments and comparisons.
