Summary
A blond, green-eyed child of a Marine sent home from WWII suffering from acute brain trauma, Phyllis Hain frankly chronicles her struggle to survive devastating domestic violence and spousal abuse by creating two personas - one for the darkness of home, the other for the brilliance of life. This fascinating journey of an abuse survivor and national advocate will not just steal readers' hearts but leave an indelible, searing mark on readers' minds...and on society at large. More specifically, Phyllis' captivating story will serve as a superb guide to abuse (child, spousal, pet, etc.) because readers will be able to see themselves in her story. The professional analysis at the end of the book adds quite a lot and provides a great amount of fodder for spousal abuse support groups (and others) to discuss. Whether it is mental, physical, or sexual abuse, Diamond in the Dark relates to them all. Diamond in the Dark can help many to heal, or even help abuse victims to speak up
