"Domestic violence has been glossed over, set aside, and quite honestly ignored for years. Dr. Ramona is a picture of courage, willing to be vulnerable and transparent through her own painful past in an effort to lift others out of their current dark reality."
--from foreword by Ray McElroy, former NFL player and Chicago Bears chaplain
