Westerville, Ohio (PRWEB) April 14, 2016
The latest release by author Debra Shiveley Welch, addresses the subject of domestic abuse head on in her novel Spirit Woman. "Spirit Woman" reveals in shocking detail the true stories of four women and the abuse they suffered. Rolled into one character, "Spirit Woman" tells the story of Nickie Bahiti Greene and is set in Westerville, Ohio. Ms. Welch states, “In my humble opinion, I feel that the story of Nickie Greene is very important to our society. Not only that, I feel that it will also help children being abused now - the markers are in the book. Stop child abuse now, and we prevent a good percentage of the cases of partner abuse that we see in adulthood.
“I have explored the signs and symptoms of the secretly abused and have interviewed four women who were victims of partner and/or child abuse and used them in weaving Nickie’s story. I hope that it will put an end to the shame the victims feel and help them to reach out for help. I pray that it will aid in saving and improving lives.”
