Brown's book brings deeper understanding of the deadly dance holding victims of domestic violence captive, helping front-line supporters and loved ones save lives. Her book intertwines her personal story around insightful analysis and vital escape plans. More importantly, the enlightenment and encouragement it provides empowers victims to leave the violence and reach for the promise on the other side.
Off the Map: was a finalist for three writing awards and it is recommended by Focus on the Family Canada. Jack Canfield of Chicken Soup For the Soul says, "I found this book to be eye-opening. It is my profound hope that it will contribute to the end of domestic violence."
When Jacquie escaped the violence and arrived in Calgary she felt like a refugee who'd escaped persecution and arrived in the land of the free. She is now partnering with organizations like Sonshine, Mary Kay and Peer Support to help other abuse victims find their freedom.
