“The question is always ashed. ‘What kind of woman would stay in an abusive relationship?’ And the sebtext always is. ‘There must be something wrong with her.’ In Whose Face Is in the Mirror?. Dianne Schwartz takes the reader inside the mind and soul of a battered woman to understand from the inside out the fear, shame, and certainty of blame that confine her… and then follows the brave journey – her own – to find safety, self-love, and spiritual truth.”

“In my 20 years of primary care medicine, I have heard the storied of abuse told by women and wen, but I’ve never heard them told with such detail and emotional. Dianne’s story put me in the shoes of the battered person. “I applaud Dianne for the courage to share her story with others and to illustrate that as helpless as they feel, they do possess the strength to live, and the power to change. My only hope is that more will listen to her messages before it’s too late.”
— Kenneth A Kenyhercz, M.D.
“Victims of any addiction ofter feel alone, shamed, or frightened, falsely believing that they must find thir own way. The person who is battered that they must find their own way. The person who is battered is no different. Dianne Schwartz shares her ordeal with her abusive husband, but more important, she confides what she learned that therapy, and the steps she took that led to her full recovery. This is a must read for any victim of domestic violence.”
