SHELTER ME intertwines the tribulations of young versus old, love verses dependency, good losses versus bad when two women are thrown into a friendship by events beyond their control. They teach each other to empower their own lives, leave the past behind and embrace their own new future. This novel explores polar-opposite traumas: widowhood, and spousal abuse - topics often explored singularly. Here the author tells of her characters' pain and grief and how they help each other onto the road to a stable life. Shelter Me should be required reading for all professionals who work with victims of domestic violence and their families. It will serve as an inspiration to those who suffer from such violence as well. Ethan S. Rofman, M.D. Associate Professor of Psychiatry Boston University School of Medicine "Shelter Me" is a riveting and honest account for women everywhere who have gone through the hell of domestic violence.
