"This book should be required reading for all women of childbearing age."--Pat Glasier, Women's Shelter Director

And then that ended. He moved away. I don't really remember where he moved to or what happened to him. I had the baby and I went back home and my aunt, that my uncle beat up on all the time, she tried to commit suicide. She got on a Yamaha 100 dirt bike and ran into a tree in front of the funeral parlor at eighty miles an hour trying to commit suicide. And the one thing she did, she has a head injury, she has the mentality of a seven year old now. The most ironic thing was it took that for my uncle not to be abusive anymore. Yeah [laughs], that was stupid. And I realized then why Aunt Susan had done this and, you know, I remember all those years of seeing him beat her and stuff and I thought, that sucks. The kids knew why she did it; she would say, I'm tired, just so tired.--Sherry's Story
