Shadow Street: A memoir of escaping a psychopath. (Paperback)
Trapped. Married to a psychopath. Can she escape to a better life?
Navigating a marriage with a psychopath is not only unpredictable but also, at times, dangerous. Add the Vietnam War, two children-one born with disabilities-plus the usual pitfalls a young married couple encounter, and you have the perfect recipe for domestic disaster.
This was Laurie Hawkins' life. Once bound to James by marriage, and ambushed by her own codependency, the relationship morphs into a nightmare which traps her both emotionally and physically. The horrors defining this relationship multiply when the couple moves to the house on Shadow Street. Finally, after thirteen years of marriage, events align that set the stage for her escape.
