RALEIGH, N.C. (PRWEB) March 23, 2015
RALEIGH, N.C. –The book “So You Could Stand: Stories of Domestic Violence” (published by Xlibris) grew out of the author Rachel Bryant’s desire to bring further definition, recognition and clarity of domestic violence into average homes and libraries in hope that victims will be able to see themselves in the characters of the book and through utilization of appropriate and available resources find their way out of crippling and demoralizing situations.
The book contains three poems. The title poem, So You Could Stand, unravels a horrific tale of domestic violence as seen through the eyes of a wife after she manages to escape her cruel and domineering husband of many years, only to discover that he is now preying upon their devoted and unsuspecting daughter as she attempts to make a normal transition into adulthood. Two additional poems of abuse, The Stalker and The Drunkard, are also included in this revealing and riveting book.
