Toronto, ON -- (ReleaseWire) -- 10/24/2017 --I Dare You! Conquer Fear and Free Yourself from Emotional Abuse is an urgent and compassionate call to consciousness for women in toxic relationships. Carol-Ann Marshall's book focuses on emotional abuse while briefly touching on sexual, physical, psychological, and financial abuse. She encourages women to identify for themselves the true state of their unions - healthy or otherwise.

When we mention the word "abuse," we automatically think of sexual and physical abuse because that is the most obvious form. We often don't consider that emotional and verbal abuse can be just as harmful to a woman's sense of well-being.

Rudyard Kipling said,"Words are the most powerful drug known to humanity."

The author also challenges women to decide what quality of life they desire. Women who are ready for change will find the comprehensive "Safety Checklist of Pre- and Post-Planning Measures" invaluable in facilitating their choice.

I Dare You! Includes an unflinching expose? of the author's personal experiences with emotional abuse and her journey towards self-awareness. The reader will find inspirational and true stories that trace the faltering, though courageous, steps some women have taken to live and love without the relentless daily trauma of domestic violence or emotional abuse.
