In an incident that shocked Australia, Rosie Batty's 11-year-old son was killed by his father in a violent incident in February 2014.

She won the Pride of Australia Award in 2014, and was named Australian of the Year in January 2015.

This book is beautifully written - more like reading an unbelievable thriller than an autobiography.
I have a much better insight into how the tragedy of losing Luke came to be and have nothing but admiration for Rosie sharing her story.
This book will answer all the "but how...." and "but why..." questions that people may have about the events leading up to that horrible fateful day, on the day and after. It is not an easy subject to read about, but if people have to live with domestic violence day in day out, then taking two hours out of my life to make an effort to understand what some go through is the least I can do.
Luke's murder was and is a tragedy, and it is a tragedy that this book is necessary.
Sad & tragic story which was well written. Rosie did everything she could to protect her son. Luke should still be here. STOP FAMILY VIOLENCE
A credit to Rosie for becoming a spokesperson for DV prevention to honour her beloved son. Rosie has great strength. Much love to Rosie x

The nightmare never ends for these victims - the abusers are in their lives, and their children's lives, for many many years. The manipulation, the attempt to control, the aberrant behavior, continue. I used to think, "Just get out. Why do you keep letting it happen?" Now I get it, to some extent.
So Rosie, keep talking. Courts, attorneys, and especially potential victims, need to understand why this happens, and why it continues. Courts could help a lot more than they do. Kudos for your courage!
