Dance with Danger: A Story of Domestic Abuse and Survival

Descriere: Keisha Allen-Smith is an advocate for abuse survivors and consumers of mental healthcare. Her hobbies include poetry, traveling, and spending time with family. Her vision is a world where children are safe from abuse and where adults who have been abused as children can heal safely without barriers. Dance with Danger: A Story of Domestic Abuse and Survival is Keisha's first published work. It chronicles her journey from abused victim to victorious survivor of a verbally and emotionally abusive relationship. Here you will find intimate details of how such a relationship affects the mind and every aspect of a person's life. "This page-turner might well be required reading in high school literature or social studies classes. Millions of teens have no knowledge of the warning signs of a potentially dangerous relationship. Keisha eventually rescued herself and has gone on to help others." --Patricia Evans, Author The Verbally Abusive Relationship http: //www.verbalabuse.com In this very personal memoir Keisha shares intimate details of a romantic relationship turned toxic. At the age of 16, she meets Brad, a tall, handsome boy in her class. He takes an interest in her from the very beginning, but she is not ready or willing to get involved with anyone since her heart is still heavy after a recent breakup with David. Brad's persistence pays off and after two years of denying his advances, Keisha finally gives him a chance. What she doesn't know eventually surfaces and shocks her world. Brad has a side to him that is as sharp as a two-edged sword. Having been conditioned by her upbringing to tolerate dysfunctional relations, Keisha is drawn closer to Brad and soon finds herself in this abusive relationship. The dynamics of the relationship soon begin to affect her emotions, her thinking patterns and her body. During the ups and downs of this tumultuous roller coaster ride, Keisha is forced to make decisions that dramatically change her life and sometimes put her children in danger. Isolated from her best friends, supportive family members, and any other outside support Keisha and her children struggle to survive while the effects of domestic abuse leave overwhelming effects on everyone's psyche.
