Book Title: Bending the Bars Genre: Abuse Survival Age: Adult Anne's story need never be documented. If existing law had protected Anne, and Ruby's children, Ruby's Law would never have been written. Jo and Lennie begin a 20 year trek to find and rescue Anne from her abusive husband. They rescue hundreds of other women, children, and the occasional man. Often, the survivors have known no other life. They have been conditioned to believe abuse is normal. The search for Anne continues. Their hope begins to fade. Bodies burn out. More stations open. More people try to escape. Stuck in the legal limbo land, where they are safe from abusers, while surrounded by other survivors, with little hope of full recovery. Few make it out to live beyond the bars that Ruby's Law has given to protect them. It simply isn't safe. Abusers wait out there. Often barely beyond the fence. Can the New Underground Railroad Project stay on track to train abuse survivors to live abuse-free on their own? Or will they remain behind the legal bars that protect them from their abusers?
