This book opened my eyes and gave me a language for not only what I have experienced in two abusive relationships, but also understanding for why my mother was unable to leave my father despite him being incredibly cruel. I have so much compassion for her now, and a fire burns in my belly at the injustice faced by so many women whose experiences of coercive control is largely invisible to the legal system and who are forced to endure ongoing assaults on their freedom by men who wish to claim and exploit their partner’s resources and labour.
