You are about to embark on an intimate, often disturbing, true memoir of a young Dannielle Devereaux, who is a survivor of domestic violence. She is an intelligent, talented, creative and well- read individual, yet she fell prey to this trap. All she ever wanted in life was to offer aid to others in need. Her pursuit of higher education kept her alive and plotting her eventual escape from this nonsensical brutal bondage. How did she get trapped? Why did everyone think her husband was such a charming man? Will you be able to find the "Red Flags"? She is unaware of the many hazardous paths that lay within her wake. What is asked of those who read this memoir, is not to follow her path, but to find the ways that could have assisted in her freedom. Will she carve out her unique emboldening journey toward freedom or will her path be met with an ever-present ominous darkness that will haunt or destroy her forever? All names of the characters and any geographical locations have been changed for each individual's personal protection.
