About the Book

“Can someone please help me understand the craziness engulfing our family?” Daily this question screamed through Jemimah’s confused and anxious mind. Chaos ruled as in angst she watched the man she had married rotate his “Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” personalities, leaving her feeling trapped and fearful.

Jemimah Black takes us on an insightful journey from the exciting beginnings of her new dating relationship, into the gradual uncovering of the shocking truth that she had married an emotionally and psychologically abusive man. She seeks answers to her questions, “How did I get myself into this? Was I so ‘in love’ that I failed to see the signs? If this is now my reality, what is my response to be? Am I required to be silent and endure? Is there a time to stand up and speak up, even if it means losing everything I treasure?”

If you are curious and brave enough to venture inside the home of a family experiencing abuse, this book swings the front doors wide open and invites you in. As you enter, you will be surprised and amazed at how, without a single physical blow, one person can hold an entire family hostage.

You will not be able to read this book without being deeply challenged. It is an essential tool that sheds light on the dynamics of abuse and will make you question everything you think you know about family violence. Reading this book will not only change you, it might even help you save a life.

About the Author

Living through an emotionally and psychologically abusive marriage before eventually escaping the trauma, has caused Jemimah to become passionate about supporting others caught in family violence. She is committed to educating the community, particularly the church community, to understand the dynamics of abusive relationships. Her greatest passion is teaching women that there is not only a way to escape domestic and family violence, but that they can be completely healed from their trauma and thrive in their God-ordained future.

Using her Social Science Degree, Jemimah has been employed in the community sector for many years working in various roles including Family Counselor, Family Support Worker, and Transitional Housing Worker.

In November 2015, Jemimah was honored to be asked to help develop and implement a transitional housing program that supports women and children leaving family violence. The program not only provides transitional housing for families, but it also offers wrap-around services such as advocacy, referrals, court support and help to establish new social networks. Jemimah and her team actively work with the families to ensure they are offered every opportunity to successfully re-establish their new lives, and she continues to coordinate the ongoing operation of this program today.

Jemimah is a mother to Robert, a healthy, fun-loving 16 year old who loves playing the drums—and we won’t mention the Xbox. Robert is the older brother to Cookie, a loveable but not-so-innocent Groodle dog, who adds much delight and mischief to the family.
