"Riveting, brave, and transparent...The effects of trauma rule our lives until we take a chance, take charge and work through it. Entrenched will give you the courage to do just that." -Marnie Grundman (TedX Talk)

"What differentiates Blakemore's story from others is her attention to underlying issues of her familiarity with and attraction to abuse and, even more importantly, the lasting impact of abandonment. Her story acknowledges and embraces a basic contradiction and psychological quandary...she came to see that "staying with a man who left would keep her forever entrenched in the very thing she needed to move beyond." Women who live in, tolerate, or struggle with abusive situations will find Blakemore's descriptions thought-provoking, familiar, and revealing. Her story of life lessons holds hope for all who find themselves in her position-which is, sadly, likely to be an unexpectedly wide audience." - D. Donovan, Senior Reviewer, Midwest Book Review

"...a familiar train wreck I couldn't look away from. Each chapter kept me wanting more and I was captivated by the main character...this work will resonate with anyone." -Katlyn White, Foster Care Coordinator, Cleveland, OH

"Brave and insightful. Entrenched is an important addition to the literature of abuse and recovery....Among the many resources abuse victims can turn to, one of the most helpful is the personal narrative of someone who found the courage to face their demons - both external and internal - and the strength to change. Blakemore is that kind of writer: clear-eyed, perceptive, and willing to tell her truth no matter what." -Sue William Silverman, author, Because I Remember Terror, Father, I Remember You

"Entrenched echoes the message of resilience, determination, self-discovery, and hope. A must-read for survivors, advocates, and professionals." -Cathy Brochu, A.A.S., B.A., CHT, ADT, Author, Speaker, Educator, and Consultant

"...vulnerable, honest, moving memoir... Blakemore dives deep into her own traumas of childhood sexual assault and abusive relationships to shine a light for others who may still be trapped. This courageous book offers a hand to anyone who's struggling to heal. It does what the best books do - it makes the world less lonely and, especially for adult survivors of trauma...This is a profoundly generous book."-Lori Jakiela, author of Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe, Pittsburgh, PA
