Blurb

My experience is not anymore unique. It is a story to be told, a warning to others, a chapter of reality rarely uncovered. How did I end up here? I find it difficult to fathom. Perhaps working back through the recent course of events may clarify the bewilderment remaining. This is not a love song. What sucked me in? What pulled me tight? What trapped my mind, believing that this was right? An escape, my way out—how delicious it tasted. How susceptible was my spirit to the conundrum awaiting? When at the tipping point, our reactions become irrational, our perspective warped and twisted, the filter will be coated with rose-colored tint. This is a world where interplanetary connections network indiscriminately, preying on the frailty of systems. What we will discover is yet to be revealed, by not pursuing this notion, have we failed to really live? Who is this man I hardly know?

Introduction

Japan…the exotic far east…

Who is this man I hardly know!

When at the tipping point our reactions become irrational, our perspective warped and twisted, the filter be coated with rose-colored tint.

This world, where interplanetary connections network indiscriminately, preys on the frailty of systems. With modern tools at hand, they stealthily encroach, the system we entrust only loosely securing the surface.

What we will discover is yet to be revealed, by not pursuing this notion, have we failed to really live?

Wendi Getz: Very powerful and moving story! A great read, especially for young women. I loved how it pulled the reader down the slippery slope that is domestic abuse and gave us an inside view of how easy it is to end up in that situation.
