No One Knew: My Emotional Journey of Being Married to a Sociopath and How I Learned to Heal (Paperback)
Research has shown that up to four percent of the population in this country are sociopaths. Many people are unaware of what a sociopath is and what they are capable of. Some may feel that something is off about their partner but don't even realize that they are in a relationship with a very dangerous and inherently evil person. How do I know? Because that was me.
My sociopath ex-husband came into my life like a freight train. From the beginning, he had me thinking we were soulmates, but I was left picking up the pieces and wondering how it all happened. As a victim of sociopathic violence, I felt compelled to share my knowledge so that the issue of emotional abuse is raised amongst the public's consciousness, empowering others to speak out. This is my personal story..."No One Knew."
"Like so many of us, Renee Olivier was unaware that sociopaths can be disguised as charming, magnetic romantic partners. She relates her personal story of finding out about them the hard way - through a relationship with a man who had once been her knight in shining armor but eventually turned into a hostile, domineering, and parasitic villain. Readers who have had a similar experience will be validated. Readers who have not experienced the gaslighting and abuse (yet) will be forewarned."
