Synopsis for Blinded by Love:
This book is a call to action to help victims and individuals of domestic violence recognize red flags, generational curses and cycles.
Like Ebonee so many of us are blinded by love we jump into repeated relationships without healing. Her behavior was learned through watching her mother go through abuse. She in turn felt it was okay and tolerated abuse. Although her daughter didn’t see it with her own eyes she had the mindset that it was okay to stay. And it cost her and her babies life. When she found the courage to get out after tolerating it for so long it cost her, her life.
Domestic violence does not discriminate please seek help if you know someone dealing with it or if you are in it….
