AFRAID TO GO HOME, A Novel About Violence Against Women, Released By Tristan/Isolde Publishing
Date:3/3/2009

REDONDO BEACH, Calif., March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Tristan/Isolde Publishing, a new imprint devoted to the relationships between men and women, has released a new novel today, AFRAID TO GO HOME.

AFRAID TO GO HOME, a 420 page paperback, is about a White, middle-class, educated, female executive who is taken advantage of at work by the Good Ol' Boys, and is trapped in a violent relationship which she can't free herself and her children from at home.

"One of the reasons I wrote this book," says Baden Hill, the author, "is that I wanted to de-bunk the myth that domestic violence is primarily a problem of minorities and youth."

The episodes of violence depicted in the book are drawn from both discussions the author had with victims, as well as from stories posted on the internet, usually by the victims themselves, but often by the perpetrators of the violence who wanted to "confess" what they had done.

There is no shortage of police and U.S. Justice Department statistics that prove that this is an epidemic affecting all of society:

  • One in three women will report physical or sexual abuse by a husband or boyfriend at some point in their lives.
  • Four million American women experience a serious assault by a partner during an average 12-month period.
  • Everyday in America, on average, three women are murdered by a husband or boyfriend.
  • Approximately 73% of the victims are White and between 25 and 54 years of age.

Sadly, all studies confirm, the vast majority of cases of violence against women are never reported, with the victims not calling the police because they consider the violence to be a "private matter."

"This is a problem that doesn't get the attention it deserves," says the author. "I hope that publishing a book, such as this one, will help the victims realize that they are not alone and that help is available to them."

AFRAID TO GO HOME, which retails for $19.99, is available from Amazon.com and independent bookstores nationwide.

Tristan/Isolde Publishing is the continuation of a Southern California-based publishing family that began in 1986. The new imprint will be focusing on literary fiction on the subject of male/female relationships.
