Our first reader review

"Of the fifteen short stories in this collection, amazingly there wasn't a single one which I felt was a dud. In fact the collection is refreshingly varied - perhaps unsurprising as the authors include a doctor, a lawyer, a crime writer, a police officer, a scientist, a therapist and a teacher. Most importantly, the stories, although all in some way involving sexual abuse by men against women, are really about survival, overcoming the abuse, fighting back. What shines through in each case is the courage of the women, the solidarity of family and friends, the emotional intelligence and ingenuity of the writers. Strongly recommended." - Cathy on Goodreads
