The Next Time I Leave

canva book cover

A Story about Intimate Partner Violence is the first of a three-book special of the Begin Again Series. This book talks about topics very few people choose to discuss, such as domestic violence and child abuse. What makes this story special is the main character, Asuma’s fight to escape the permanent victim status. She wants to overcome, she wants to thrive and learn who she is.

After enduring such an abusive relationship, Asuma is forced to reflect on many things that have taken place in her life, including her complex relationship with her mother. Most of all, she finds herself questioning God and her spiritual beliefs…what does it all mean and where is God during her dark times?

This story details an astounding journey that begins with rejection and depression and evolves into renewed hope, new challenges and a different outlook on life and relationships. It is hoped that readers will be educated and inspired to thrive from life’s curve balls and not be afraid to talk about their pain and experiences. You are not alone!

 

What people are saying…

“A very engaging, sensitive heartfelt journey of a woman fighting the emotional abuse from her husband who was supposed to love, honor and protect her.”

-Mildred Muhammed, Domestic Abuse Survivor, Award-Winning Keynote Speaker and ex-wife of the DC Sniper

“First off, I want to commend you on writing such an inspiring and personal manuscript on a subject that is very important in light of all the stories we hear about domestic violence on a consistent basis. You have touched a nerve with this story (rightfully so) and I wish you much success as you continue on the journey to the book's release…From the very beginning, I connected with Asuma and her complexities throughout the story. I enjoyed how you wove her interactions with Joseph and, specifically, her mother and how complicated their relationship was; and, in turn, how that affected he future relationships. Her letter to God was a great summation.
