Product description

Product Description

The Crime of the Decade in Wisconsin...and covered nationally by CNN News. Interviews by Barbara Walters 20/20, Oprah Winfrey and Dr. Oz. (April 2017). Read Teri's viewpoint as told to the author!

WITH PHOTOS
Teri Jendusa never dreamed she would marry a violent, malignant narcissist like David Larsen. But she did. Why? Simple. Larsen cleverly concealed his true nature until the marriage vows were final. David, an eventual church council president and model citizen, rapidly began to morph into a monster and sociopath, telling Teri on their wedding day, “Now, I own you.”

Beaten and Left For Dead is a book about extreme marital violence, dominant control and psychological torment through the mind of the out-of-control David Larsen. It's also about survival, faith and a mother’s will to live for her children’s sake...as she faces death, face to face.

This is an ideal book for women’s studies and book clubs as it looks inside a large women’s shelter, giving the reader a glimpse of a support network. The author also interviews a counselor who works with violent men with surprising results.

Teri Jendusa-Nicolai continues to crusade for women’s issues to this day and currently works with a Wisconsin commission on domestic violence.

EDITORIAL PRAISE
"Teri Jendusa-Nicolai's story is a powerful example of the horrific lengths of barbarism a man can go to when he considers a woman his personal property. And it is, equally, an inspiring, riveting story of a woman's courage and clear thinking under the absolute worst of conditions, and of her tenacious hold to life...I am so grateful to Teri Jendusa-Nicolai and to Dave Alfvin for getting this story out to us. Don't miss it."
--Lundy Bancroft, best-selling author on domestic violence, trainer, and activist on male violence against women

"This book is important because it gets our message out as to what we do to help abusers change their value systems."
--Maureen Manning-Rosenfeld, Clinical Professional Counselor

This is the story of Teri Jendusa-Nicolai who survived a brutal relationship with David Larsen. Teri had tried multiple times to leave David as his need for control was getting worse. Teri finally had the courage to leave her abuser and started a new life. Unfortunately David had darker plans and even waited years to try and take revenge on her. The author did a great job in telling Teri's story and also includes interviews with Teri and some counselors. I highly recommend this book.

This is a wonderful book interviews are done with Teri and all the wonderful doctors that kept her alive and performed incredible surgeries to Teri's feet. It is just a miracle that she survived by the will of God. A must read and many lessons and many outreach places for everyone.

An amazing and heartbreaking true story! The author does a great job at tackling an all-too-common issue in society. Spousal abuse is far-reaching and can escalate to dangerous levels. Even attempted murder. I hope that anyone reading this can see how it starts and the patterns that develop in abusers. This would be good text for women's shelters and transition houses to have on hand. It would help some women from going back. Definitely a page turner. Couldn't put it down.

Disturbing
ByMarlene fabregason May 27, 2017
As much as I read on true crime, this book was very disturbing. What this woman went through at the hands of her husband, isn't for the faint of heart. The horrific abuse that Teri endured is beyond words. The courage she demonstrated is what helped her survive her anusive husband. Recommend this book to true crime readers.

This is the well-written story of an awful domestic abuse situation and survival. Large parts are written in interview format which makes it even more interesting. This book is also very informative on the subject of domestic violence.
