Abstract:

"In 2003 Simonne Butter's violent partner, Antoine Dixon, high on methamphetamine, cut off both her hands with a samurai sword. Her hands were reattached in a groundbreaking marathon surgery and she spent the next decade healing her mind, body and spirit. Every victim of domestic violence must read this book. Even those who have never been the victim of violence will be inspired, moved and enlightened by this candid and brutal memoir. Double-edged sword is so much more than just a story of survival, it is a guidebook for humanity - how to shrug off your oppressors and the obstacles and live your live with the greatest intensity you can muster. It's about conquering the demons and rising like a phoenix from the ashes and learning how to live with passion, honesty and love."--Back cover.
