Reviewer: Mary Hemlow
An informative, well written account of domestic abuse which may surprise some readers. A narrative set out in a way similar to a fictional novella, the main character is in reality a composite of several factual situations and experiences. The story format made for an interesting and straightforward read, smoothly developed, providing the reader with a clearer understanding of domestic abuse. The content is thought provoking yet easy to understand. A list of additional related books and websites provides further information and support.
Suggestions that might be offered; visually, the cover was not particularly attractive and while the title might be too long, it may serve to pique one’s curiosity while making a point. Because of the cover, an actual victim of abuse would be unlikely to feel comfortable reading it openly. And it should be noted that the book was not overtly Christian.
Overall, I would rate it at 4 stars.
