Emotionally vulnerable, Marcia was thrilled about this new marriage to Dick which she had long dreamed of...and in denial. While he was handsome, she considered herself ordinary and, at first, lucky. But Marcia soon found herself trapped in a damaging relationship with Dick, a sex addict and alcoholic. Her terrifying emotional prison walls kept her locked in a world of his malevolent lies, sexual trysts, menages a trois, voyeurism, infidelities and drug addiction.

Emotionally vulnerable toward him and his many addictions, she was trapped in a world of total despair and isolation.
SHE WAS RESCUED
