If (Born in Sarajevo #2) by Snjezana Marinkovic

This is an emotional and thought provoking memoir of one woman's life. She is an immigrant, which puts her in a "special" class of people. She has seen and experienced war in her homeland. She suffers at the hands of an abusive mate, and endures humiliation, pain and suffering. It also is a story of survival.

There are some who will read this and say, why didn't she just leave (sooner)? (I feel) no one truly knows what it is like to (live) in an abusive relationship, unless they have experienced it. The Author explains, how hard it was. How it affected her life, and how it changed her way of thinking.

It is sad to say that in our country and abroad so much violence happens in the home. Domestic violence is still "a dirty little secret" that many women feel they have to endure, rather than have fingers pointed at them with condensation and being labeled as a fool for staying. And hearing "Why didn't she just leave?"

I feel that If is a brave story of one woman's fight for survival. I also would like to think this book can help some women to leave an abusive relationship. I recommend to this book to all. ( )
