Invisible Witness by Lisa Kroulik Book Review (Tomoson)

I reviewed Invisible Witness: How Watching My Father Abuse Others Affected Every Area of My Life, in exchange for honest review from Tomoson. I had previously reviewed Emotional Assault: Recognizing an abusive partners bag of tricks by Kroulik as well.

I wanted to review the book because I have been a victim of domestic and emotional abuse.

I remember my father scratching my mother with a key, until her knees bleed once, while we was in the car at church. I don't remember what she did to retaliate, but my grandma did try to shoot at him later.

In the book, Kroulik discussed her families cycle of abuse. Her father and grandfather was abusive. The book is hard to read at times. Kroulik also discussed the lasting effects of domestic abuse. Domestic abuse does not affect the victim only, but family and friends. Kroulik was never abused by her father, but her mother and two of her siblings was.

For example, Kroulik developed a fear of conflict. She avoided people to avoid disagreements. When I was dating my ex, I kept a lot of things inside because I did not want to get hit again. He did not hit all the time, but certain topics, I tried to avoid. Even now, since we are separated with two kids, I do not feel comfortable completely opening up to him.

The book was a good read. I finished the book in one sitting. The book is available on Amazon in Kindle format.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
