“Left For Dead:” A Mother’s Remarkable Tale Of Survival & Courage

Miami, Florida, USA – WEBWIRE

“Left For Dead,” is the riveting docu-drama of a woman’s violent marriage to a malignant narcissist, and the husband’s failed attempt to murder her. Teri Jendusa-Nicolai’s horrific ordeal was labeled the “Crime of the Decade” in Wisconsin. The incredible survival story was covered nationally by CNN and media outlets throughout the nation. The book is the result of many hours of interviews between Jendusa-Nicolai and author David Alfvin.
Teri’s remarkable story was chronicled on CNN, 20/20 with Barbara Walters, the Oprah Winfrey Show (twice) and the Doctor Oz Show. “Left For Dead” was #1 nationally in four Kindle categories: 1) Couples and family therapy, 2) Violence in society, 3) Family health and 4) Forensic psychology.
Teri’s amazing, near-death experience and subsequent triumph is an inspiring and eye opening story. The book takes you inside Teri’s home as she details experiences with her violent, controlling husband, David Larsen.

“Left For Dead” also has valuable educational components, as readers can experience the work done in women’s shelters, law enforcement procedures and how male abusers are counseled…and sometimes changed for the better.
“Left For Dead” is a rare fly-on-the-wall documentary drama about extraordinary domestic abuse, (in the victim’s own words), and also about the support abused women receive.

“Left For Dead” is an excellent choice for book clubs, as it addresses several issues related to family violence.
