            The number one international bestseller. The first book to tell what really happened in the so-called house of horrors. In 2002 Michelle Knight was kidnapped by a Cleveland bus driver named Ariel Castro. For over a decade she endured unimaginable torture at the hands of her abduc...tor. In 2003 Amanda Berry joined her in captivity followed by Gina DeJesus in 2004. Their escape in 2013 made headlines around the world as people struggled to comprehend how three young women could remain imprisoned in a suburban house with nobody knowing. Michelle Knight had already endured years of abuse, estrangement from her own family and lost custody of her son when she was caught by Castro. Local police, believing she had run away removed her from the missing person's list 15 months after she vanished. Castro would torment her with these facts, reminding her that no-one cared. But Michelle would not be broken. Now the basis for a TV movie, FINDING ME is shocking, heart-breaking and ultimately triumphant; it tells how Michelle survived against the odds and how she went on to rebuild her life and secure a future. In it Michelle becomes a voice for the voiceless and a powerful symbol of hope for the thousands of children and young adults who go missing every year. Now fully updated, with a new cover and new afterword by Michelle Knight. 'In my 12 years of doing the Dr Phil show no one has changed me like Michelle Knight and her story of survival' - Dr Phil McGraw 'Monsters might not deserve names, but victims do deserve voices. Ariel Castro tried to tell this woman that she didn't have one. Finding Me proves him wrong' - The Independent UK

You will never again be plagued by self-doubt, pain, and confusion. You are no longer a pawn in the mind games of a p...sychopath. You are free. Devoid of empathy and driven by an overwhelming need to win, psychopaths exploit others in the coldest most heartless ways imaginable. In constant pursuit of money, sex, power, or simple amusement, these predators wreak havoc and destroy lives all around us, every single day. They hide behind a veil of normalcy, arranging their friends and partners like pawns in a game of chess. Using false praise and flattery to get what they want, they can lure any unsuspecting target into a relationship. Once hooked, their charming promises spin into mind games and psychological torture. Victims are left devastated and confused, unable to recognize--or even put into words--the nightmare that just took place. This significantly expanded edition of Psychopath Free contains new chapters, updated content, and real survivor experiences. Written from the heart, it is the first guide for survivors written by a survivor, offering hope for healing and thriving after psychopathic abuse. Say goodbye to the chaos, self-doubt, and abuse.

            In 2012, Jackie Clark launched The Aunties, a grassroots charity helping women to rebuild their lives after a period of trauma. She quit her job, turning her back on her comfortable life, to focus on The Aunties full-time, becoming Aunty in Charge and assisting hundreds of women ...with material needs and emotional support. Jackie has long dreamed of a publication that gives these women a voice. This powerful new book features the stories of a number of very different New Zealand women, told their way. The collected stories chart their narrators' lives and personal histories, through the lens of having lived with - and escaped - an abusive partner. Her Say is spoken from the heart, uncompromising but offering hope, redemption, personal triumph. It's a book for all women, showing how owning our stories gives us the power to write daring new endings. It will challenge, illuminate, and empower readers - not to mention the storytellers themselves.

            At the office of Safe Steps, Victoria?s dedicated 24/7 family violence response call centre, phone counsellors receive a call every three minutes. Many women are repeat callers- on average, they will go back to an abusive partner eight times before leaving for good. 'You must get... so frustrated when you think a woman?s ready to leave and then she decides to go back,? I say. 'No,? replies one phone counsellor, pointedly. 'I?m frustrated that even though he promised to stop, he chose to abuse her again.? Women are abused or killed by their partners at astonishing rates- in Australia, almost 17 per cent of women over the age of fifteen - one in six - have been abused by an intimate partner. In this confronting and deeply researched account, journalist Jess Hill uncovers the ways in which abusers exert control in the darkest - and most intimate - ways imaginable. She asks- What do we know about perpetrators? Why is it so hard to leave? What does successful intervention look like? What emerges is not only a searing investigation of the violence so many women experience, but a dissection of how that violence can be enabled and reinforced by the judicial system we trust to protect us. Combining exhaustive research with riveting storytelling, See What You Made Me Do dismantles the flawed logic of victim-blaming and challenges everything you thought you knew about domestic and family violence.
