The perfect match. Or so she thinks.
Her warmth and empathy. His charisma and ambition.
Yet, Cathy feels safer teaching battle-scarred gangsters in a prison classroom than at home with her own partner.
By day she walks on eggshells. At night she sleeps on the backseat of her car. Her safe place is an all-night roadhouse; her best friend, her journal.
The slow boil intensifies until, one day, Cathy finds her grandmother’s armoire smashed to pieces in her bedroom, a hammer on the floor, her life in splinters beside it.
Part memoir, part inspiration, Boiling a Frog Slowly is unflinching in its confrontation of abuse and utterly courageous in its portrayal of redemption.
