There has been a void in women’s stories of abuse and survival. This autobiography by Ms. Torres helps to fill that void by telling her own story, the story of one latina who could be any or every woman. She writes in a down to earth, compelling way that allows the reader to relate easily. I cried with her, became angry for her, and celebrated with her. For any woman married to a cop who not only thinks it’s his right to treat her like a punching bag and with the support of his cop buddies he gets away with it, this personal account will be a beacon of hope that this seemingly unwinable situation can be overcome. Thank you, Ms. Torres for writting. We need more women to speak up against abuse hidden behind the badge.

Ms Torres wrote with such raw emotions, I felt her struggle as she wrote and possibly relived every experience. How empowering and uplifting to read a book that is real and uncensored. I hope this encourage survivors everywhere to be strong and hopeful.
