About half of the women in the United States and Canada have been physically or sexually assaulted after the age of 16. The figures in other countries are similar. Written by an outsider (an anthropologist) and an insider (a spousal abuse survivor), this book offers a humanistic, rather than statistical, overview of the problem of spousal abuse. It is based on an extensive set of interviews with abused women and individuals who seek to help them (shelter workers, police officers, marriage counselors). More particularly, it follows four women as they move through the steps they must follow to extricate themselves from an abusive relationship and then get on with their lives. The reader witnesses their success and failures as they face a task that is both necessary and daunting, and the effects that spousal abuse (and at attempts stopping the abuse) have on an ever-widening circle of people. This book illustrates how society in general and individuals and organizations in particular help and hinder the process of extrication - often at the same time. By analyzing the solutions, and their implications, that have been offered to and by the abused women, the authors arrive at a set of alternative solutions that could significantly reduce the incidence of spouse abuse in the future.
ONE LAST UNVEIL is book three in the FBI mystery series by author Sarah Sutton. A true-crime podcaster is found brutally stabbed to death in her home after walking her child to the bus stop. At first, all signs point to those closest to her. But when a friend and fellow podcaster digs into her obsession—a cold case laid to rest for fifteen years—and later turns up dead too, local police and the FBI realize that a serial killer dubbed the Silent Stalker could be striking again for the first time in years. With the FBI called in and no leads to follow, they quickly realize they need a brilliant mind to crack the case: FBI Agent Tara Mills. But Tara is reluctant at first. The case reminds her too much of her mother’s when it’s revealed that the victim’s daughter, a selective mute, lost her mother at the same age as Tara. But Tara is compelled as she realizes it is only a matter of time before the killer strikes again. As she peels back each layer, she falls deeper into the darkest depths of her mind and into the nightmares she had tried so hard to escape. Meanwhile, Tara digs deeper into her past, obsessed with revealing the mystery woman visiting her father in prison, which leads to a shocking discovery. As she battles her own psyche and more victims are murdered, Tara realizes that the key to solving it all could be what she finds most triggering: her connection to the victim’s daughter. As she takes a path she fears to travel, deep into the depths of her mind, she unveils a truth she never expected.

At a conference several years ago, psychologist Catherine Phillips heard the Dalai Lama say, “The single most important thing you can do for healing is to cultivate a warm heart.” “That's it!” she thought. That one sentence captured what she had learned in more than 15 years of working with cancer patients and their families through the Healing Journey, a program that helps people cope with cancer. In this book, Dr. Phillips brings the intimacy of a support group into the reader's private world. She teaches simple yet effective techniques to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and shares real-life stories from patients about their own experiences through the ups and downs of cancer.
