About the Book
Better Out than In takes us on a journey from Africa to the U.S. through the author’s experiences growing up and marrying into domestic violence. She speaks to the history of her abuse as well as that of her siblings and how it came through many hands and methods. From watching her father beat her mother on a regular basis to a horribly abusive step-mother who beat and demeaned her, and having been date raped and forced into an abusive marriage, Ms. Cooper paints a chilling image of the effects of domestic violence. Traveling to another continent, the author escapes her tormentors and builds her self-confidence, gets an education and builds a new life for herself. A powerful story of determination, courage, and refusal to accept the status-quo.
