“The Bruises Never Show: A Fictional Story Based on True Events”: an intense fictional examination of domestic abuse. “The Bruises Never Show: A Fictional Story Based on True Events” is the creation of published author Diane Winters, among many things a former nurse and avid reader in all genres.

Winters paints a dramatic first scene: “It was February, and a frigid breeze was blowing through her hair, and an icy rain predicted earlier in the day was moving in fast. Now there wasn’t time to do everything she needed to do. 'I have to get out of here now!' Anna flew to the car to pack up the last of her things. She crammed her belongings into every crease and corner she could find. The moving van she had originally scheduled for that morning was accidently given out to the wrong person, and she wasted precious time arguing with the man. In the end, she was given her money back and was left to her own devices. She grabbed what was most precious to her, looked back through the house one more time, and said, ‘I’m not coming back!’”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Diane Winters’s new book is a provocative melodrama that seeks to bring the reader beyond the dread and shock of true-to-life situations as described in Anna’s story and on to a position they can begin to fight back.

The book includes a study guide that prompts the reader to ponder over the events that surround Anna Schumann’s struggle, offers a list of warning signs of domestic violence, as well as information for hotlines, support groups, and reference material to equip readers to protect themselves and help those in Anna’s shoes who are unable to help themselves.
