This review is from: Freedom's Flowers: The Effects of Domestic Abuse on Children. (Paperback)
As an outsider looking in, we see abuse in isolation, little snippets here and there. We tell ourselves 'it will be ok, just a phase'. We go on with ourlives living in the clouds. But wait, What happens when you stop, pause and join the dots? Well, this book does just that! The survivors have pieced together the full story of the ugliest, evil veil that has plagued families for centuaries. It's message is brutally honest, it has to be. This is a wakeup call. You might be watching images on your telly and thinking 'oh, how terrible' in far away lands. But terrible is probably only a couple of houses away. If your a professional with your head in the clouds - get reading. If your a sufferer - be aware that this might invoke powerful emotional reactions. You might not be ready. Take it slow and seek advice and support.
