The other side of Silent Trauma, is the simple story of four very different and wholly believable women, caught up in private agonies and desperate relationships, all drawn with immense sympathy. At least in this part of the story, there is a happy conclusion, because they have found one another.
A very strong and involving read.
It is a novel based on facts; the story of how a group of women, linked by DES and its consequences, come together to raise awareness of an issue which has been swept under the carpet by the pharmaceutical companies and medical profession. As with all Judith Barrow's books, the characters are vivid and real and the reader is drawn into their lives. Silent Trauma is a powerful read and I recommend both as an engaging page-turner and as a much needed exploraiton of an issue about which I'm guessing I'm not the only one who was ignorant.
My husband is reading this at the moment, then it will be passed on to all the family..a greater understanding all round.
It gives the reader an understanding of the guilt experienced by mothers who took the drug and the devastating health problems and trauma suffered by their children.
I found the book interesting, educational and it took me on an emotional roller coaster. I became so engaged in the story that I found it hard to put down as I felt a real connection to the characters portrayed.
A brilliant read and one I would definitely recommend.
The author illustrates the tragic and far-reaching consequences of the drug DES, which was given to pregnant women, but it's also a testament to the strength of female friendship. I found myself caring deeply about these women and the unfair circumstances they found themselves in.
I would definitely recommend this book.
