We aim to place a book on every refuge bed in Australia to help domestic violence survivors rebuild their lives.

In Broken to Brilliant, 10 women share their unique story to help readers understand the many different shapes domestic violence can take. And yet the focus of this book is not on the horror, but the healing. Each woman shares the skills, techniques and attitudes that helped her to shine once again.

This book is inspiring and helpful – clients Chisholm Refuge


In Terror to Triumph, 11 women and 1 man have penned powerful stories of the terror they experienced and the additional challenges they encountered from a system that was supposed to help them. Most importantly, they tell of the practical steps they have taken – physically, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually – to journey from darkness to light and build new lives.


In Shattered to Shining, nine women and one male domestic violence survivor describe how they were shattered as their home was the place where physical and sexual violence, emotional and psychological control dominated their lives.

Through their persistence and courage, they have journeyed away from being shattered by the abuse. Each chapter is filled with the shortcuts and tools needed to travel this road of recovery to stand in their new life, with their future brightly shining



“This isn’t just another book; it is from survivors dedicated to fellow domestic violence survivors; we hope that each page survivor’s turn will guide them to a new chapter in their life.”
