AUTHOR COMMENTARY I grew up in a gorgeous 16 room house with a three car garage. It hid the dysfunction and the pain in our house beautifully. Those walls hid dirty secrets...arguing, verbal and emotional abuse, jealousy, narcissism, affairs, guilt, and shame. I got used to it. I would gladly have given up all that privilege for normalcy. When the family foundation crumbled, my self-esteem tumbled. I was in the tornado of my own violent marriage when I knew that if the abuse didn't end, it would end me. I would end up dead. I realized that you either live life or life lives you. A strong woman knows that she has strength enough for her journey, but a woman of strength knows it is her journey that will make her strong. READER COMMENTARY Michelle Dupree is captivating on the radio, whether she is answering rapid-fire questions from the host or call in listeners. She keeps me glued to topics that might not be my first topic of choice. Why? In "Beat the Crap Out of Domestic Violence," she discusses no-no topics such as politics, war, and religion. Her memoir might be 'chick-lit, but the content is riveting and she is an articulate writer. If she wrote for the newspaper, I would search out her articles every day. I want to know what she has to say next. Michelle is interesting and talented. - Jeffrey R. Swaney, Attorney, The Swaney Law Firm Beat the Crap Table of Content 1. TRUST 2.
