ESCAPING PURGATORY is about personal hells. We all create them. We find ways to convince ourselves that we are comfortable even with the really cruel ones, at least for a while. It’s understandable. After all change is frightening. But inevitably there comes a time when we are willing to do anything to end the torment. In this book you’ll meet some of those extremes and perhaps you’ll recognize yourself.
