Smolensky’s book tells the chilling story of abuse by her husband. Emotional abuse. Physical abuse. Incarceration in a mental institution. Continued threats of taking away her children, culminating in the need to simply disappear with her new partner, a woman, in order to keep her family. The most telling part of the story goes unsaid—more than fifty years after the abuse ends, the need for catharsis remains. Inkwater Press (inkwaterpress.com).
