The book signing will give DonnaLynn exposure allowing her the opportunity to personally reach out to victims. DonnaLynn herself dealt with domestic abuse for many years. She wishes to spread the word that there is hope and help. Victims of abuse often feel isolated, alone, ashamed, trapped and guilty. They are made to feel the abuse is all their fault. These feelings are difficult to overcome, BUT THERE IS HELP!!
“A Week to Remember” deals with a teenage girl who is a victim of parental abuse. She feels isolated and lives in fear daily. She spends time and energy trying to get help. The years pass and she suffers in solitude. Then she finds hope and help and the healing begins. In many cases, the healing process takes years and leaves many scars. But the abuse ends and a new life begins.
Above all, DonnaLynn wants women especially to take a stand against abuse of any kind and the shame that goes along with it. Abusers should be exposed and brought to justice. Victims need to be courageous to accomplish this. If not, abusers will continue to abuse anyone in their path. You must deal with the abuse before any healing can begin. There is hope for anyone who was abused in the past or those presently in abusive situations.
