Off the Map: Follow Me Out of Domestic Violence follows the continuum of domestic violence from entrapment to escape. It swings between the writer's story and dynamic, helpful information. The progression reveals what lies beneath the violence, the self-destructive coping mechanisms, the complexity of recreating one's life without leaving a trace, and the astonishing treasures to be found on the other side. About the Author: Jacquie Brown was trapped in domestic violence for decades. Within it, she overcame alcoholism, an eating disorder, suicidal depression, and a social phobia. When she finally understood she had to leave to live, the first thing she wanted was a map-but there were no maps for this. She did escape and now gives others the map to freedom. Jacquie speaks and works with organizations to help others escape domestic violence.
