CAN YOUR MIND HEAL AFTER TRAUMA?
Jennifer Lee Black doesn’t remember a time when her mother held her, hugged her, kissed her, or said, ‘I love you.’ But she does remember every punch, kick, burn, and insult.

A crescendo of abuse and torment builds until the unthinkable happens. At that moment, Jennifer must decide if she should continue living the way she has been or make a change and rebuild.
