This is a perfect message for domestic violence survivors when they hear her voice yet again. This time, Karen and eleven volunteer professional voice artists have all donated their talent and time to narrate the book Terror to Triumph Rebuilding your life after domestic violence stories of strength and success.


There are 11 women and 1 man who have penned powerful stories of adversity, each with their own message of resilience and steps for recovery.
