It is estimated that over 130,000 children live in homes where there is high-risk domestic abuse in the U.K. alone, and that 62% of children living with domestic abuse are directly harmed by the perpetrator. Broken Angels is a heartfelt and raw journal written by Abigail Sinclair in the hope that it will inspire others to remove themselves from relationships that are clouded by domestic abuse, which can affect anyone: men, women, children, siblings, parents and those in same sex relationships.
Abigail had the privilege of residing in a women’s refuge with her daughter and hopes this account will challenge and remove the many stigmas attached to life in a refuge, which formed the major part of her incredible healing journey. She hopes this journal will give a glimpse of refuge life and to spread the word that there really is a place where people can escape. A place that is safe and clean, offering incredible support, guidance and boundaries. A place where women and their children can rest a while a begin to fix their broken lives and dreams, until it’s time to move on.
Abigail Sinclair is an author and a songwriter who has a passion for raising awareness of domestic abuse. Her ambition is to help others flee abusive relationships and to seek refuge. Abigail hopes that Broken Angels will offer comfort and support, whilst giving practical advice and contacts whereby people can reach out for help.
