Seven percent of all murder victims are young women who are killed by their boyfriends. One out of every three women in high school is in an abusive relationship. The numbers are staggering. Those on the outside, maybe some even reading this book, may ask, "Why don't they do something? Can't people see that this is a problem?" There are many signs to see, but the person who is being abused generally can't see them because of the insults, of being trapped into lying all of the time, and of feeling that the abuse is her fault. She might feel that she is the "crazy one" in the relationship, and if she were only different, the person she's with would act differently. Because the woman doesn't recognize the problem in the relationship, most don't ask for help. It becomes important then for others to recognize the signs and help support the one being abused. From Deep Within is based on a true story. It is the Author's story. It is Danielle Joy Linhart's story.
