about

When Rosalind Penfold met Brian, she was swept off her feet. Romantic and exuberant, with four loving children, Brian was everything a woman could possibly want, and Roz fell deeply in love. But soon Roz began to notice troublesome signs that Brian was not what he seemed. A pattern of small lies and petty cruelties emerged which, over the course of their relationship, would encompass a litany of verbal, emotional, sexual, and physical abuse truly appalling in its scope and malevolence.

Often too traumatized and ashamed to admit the true extent of what she was experiencing, Roz instead poured her anguish into a series of graphic diaries. The result is a touching, profoundly shocking, and completely original portrait of domestic abuse.

An extraordinary visual testimony, Dragonslippers presents the many warning signs of abuse and offers a frank examination of the psychology of both abusers and victims. Above all, however, it is the story of a woman who fought for and found the strength to break free.

Rosalind B. Penfold is a pseudonym.
