“Holding My Hand Through Hell” by Susan Murphy Milano is Must Reading!


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, so the timing of the release of this inspiring new book from Susan Murphy Milano couldn’t be more perfect.  This poignant and well-written book tells the story of a police officer’s family and a daughter’s quest for justice long after the heart-wrenching murder of her mother. Susan Murphy Milano embraces a legacy of unconditional love and faith to triumph over a life plagued with unspeakable abuse and pain.

Based on a true story, told with the flow of a novel, spiced with frank wisdom and wit, “Holding My Hand Through Hell” encourages the reader to immerse themselves into this family s life and is an inspiration to become an advocate for change in this world we all share. The book also features a lovely foreword by Diane Fanning, the award winning true crime author of “Mommy’s Little Girl.”

“Holding My Hand Through Hell” will incite discussion, debate, and heightened awareness about hope, survival, abuse, murder, and its impact on our society. In the end, it will leave readers both applauding this woman as well as wondering how she escaped, sometimes at the eleventh hour. Twenty years later, she has realized that God must have been holding her hand through hell, delivering her from the evils of her life in order to save others.

Best-selling author Steve Jackson says, “Raw and riveting ‘Holding My Hand Through Hell’ starts fast and never lets up. In this powerful memoir, author Susan Murphy Milano throws open her personal closet so that we see what drives this woman to tirelessly champion voiceless victims and the people who love them.”

My friend, Susan Murphy Milano, is a specialist in intimate partner violence and works nationally with domestic violence programs, law enforcement and prosecutors providing technical and consulting services in “high risk” domestic violence and stalking related cases. Her principal objective is to intervene before a victim is seriously injured or killed. Susan is the creator of the important and powerful Evidentiary Abuse Affidavit© procedure for domestic violence victims.

Susan’s quest for justice was instrumental in the passage of the Illinois Stalking Law and the Lauternberg Act.  She has been prominently featured in newspapers, magazines, radio and television including: The Oprah Winfrey Show, Larry King Radio, ABC’S 20/20, Justice Files, E-True Hollywood, CNN, Sunday Today Show Profile, Women’s Day, Family Circle, US News and World Report to name only a few.   She has frequently participated in guest media commentary panels on major news programs.
