To the outside world, they were the envy of their friends and colleagues. They were “that” couple – the one that appears on everyone’s “A-List.” However, what happened behind closed doors was quite another story. Like many, this personal memoir of mental and physical abuse begins with a man filled with irresistible charm and talent and a woman who was deceived by it all. But what comes next, will turn the reader on their head. From fleeing across international borders to messages from the spirit world, this story is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat, while it inspires you to believe that everything happens for a reason. Just have faith in what you don’t always understand and all things are possible.
I zipped through this manuscript in a few days; I don't think I have ever had the incentive to read a book that quickly, and I read it voraciously. That is how gripping I found it. Congratulations on this achievement. I believe this manuscript has literary merit and I felt honored to have been given permission to read it.

Since I finished reading this manuscript, I've been thinking about it. I'm convinced that Yvonne's belief, along with her courage and love, is what saw her safely through this chaotic ordeal.

The memoir is intriguing on many levels ... to not only have lived through it, but how metaphysical and physical, natural and supernatural, intertwine into a compelling, personal journey. Quite an achievement.

Wow. This book impressed me three ways: a great read, the chronicle of a
multinational escape from a super chauvinist husband in the Eighties, and a tour of insights into psychic phenomena.
That the author with two kids could put up with so many obstacles to leave an abusive relationship and stay on the run on at least 3 continents long enough to wear out the abuser made for the easy reading adventure.
But it was the way communication with “those from beyond” was used by several of the participants in ways that continually were integral aspects of decisions and results that left the biggest impression on me.
At the very least it made the power of the intuitive more intriguing. I wish that there had been a few pictures and newspaper clippings included; the translated lawyer statements added a lot. Overall enjoyable and with a lot to think about.
