Chapter II

Will I Survive?


Holy shit, holy shit, I think as I wake in a daze, scared. “Mummy, mummy!” a little voice next to me says. “What is that noise?”

Shit, I was hoping she wouldn’t wake up. It’s three in the morning and the Devil (let’s just call my abuser the Devil so we don’t get confused) is back.

My daughter sleeps with me now, in a home I rented approximately one hour away from my parents’ home. She sleeps with me because the Devil’s mother, on numerous occasions, I don’t know how many times, would drive to our residence in the middle of the night, park down the street, and then enter our back yard through the side gate.

A chair from the outdoor setting I had purchased for barbeques would be moved to just outside my daughter’s bedroom window. The Devil’s mother would then stand on the chair and speak with my daughter until she woke up, trying to entice her to open her bedroom window.

Learn the tools to break the cycle of Domestic Violence – order your copy now


Finally, an honest and progressive book that will inevitably revolutionize how readers view domestic violence; a topic that is still perceived today as “taboo” despite the large number of lives that are grossly affected on a daily basis.


Mel gives us a frightening insight into the dark and violent world of domestic violence… how a confident, positive and caring young woman is systematically subjected to fear, manipulation and control at the hands of this ‘devil’.

Mr Gary Regazzoli
Pastor (retired)

If I was to recommend only one book for a domestic violence victim or worker to read in their time of need or career… Mel has provided such a clear and, at times, terrifying account that I felt like I was living in and also trying to escape her life.

Ms Candice Dover
CEO, Candice Care Inc.
