The other group that would probably benefit from this book would be those that have recently come out of a domestic violence situation and are still in the healing process. Healing can take a long time and the book provides encouragement to help them heal.
This is a great book to use as a starting place for a serious discussion of domestic violence with children, teenagers just starting to experiment with relationships and those who are in, just out of, or know someone in an abusive relationship.
I did find something disturbing about the book but had a really hard time putting my finger on what it was. So, I asked a couple of people that had been in those situations to read it and give me their thoughts. I also asked a couple that had been in such a situation and now were happily married. The ones that were out of such a relationship but now happily married also found something disturbing about the book but could not figure out what it was. Finally we sat down and figured out what bothered us about the book. There is absolutely no positive male image in the book at any point. The picture of the rescuing angels are all female, no indication of a male fairy also out in the light and helpful and supportive. I can accept that people in that situation may have lost their faith in members of the opposite sex and need to trust only people of the same sex while they heal. That makes this book an excellent read for them. However, for those that have not been in those situations or have come out and are now healed it is more of a good jumping off point for a serious and animated discussion of the problem.
A very small book that takes a maximum of 30 minutes to read, for those that are in a violence situation and starting to wonder about the relationship, it could be a wonderful read and is highly encouraged. For anyone else, it is better as a discussion starting point.
The illustrations are very unique, beautiful, and meaningful and enhance the story with turn of a page.
While reading this book I remembered what happened to me and how my angels (my family) helped bring me back into the light so I could see a better way. Perhaps by remembering we may be able to see abuse in other women, men or children and show them the light, give them support and hope for a gentle, safe, life. I recommend this book. - Angela Borgen
Though wonderfully written in metaphor, the message of hope and inspiration to victims of domestic violence is abundantly clear. Its not your fault, you can get help, you can get support, you can get out.
The author keeps the story brief enough that the attractive hard bound book can easily be read in a waiting room; perhaps doctors and clinics should have a couple copies amongst the requisite magazines.
A toll free national hot line number is included at the end of the book: good job.

I deserve better. Helping people to reach inside themselves and
think about their own situations. This book is truly thought provoking. I want to share it with any young woman in my life who is just beginning to get into personal relationships.
The artwork itself was very healing....it spoke to my soul.
