Top critical review
Reviewed in Australia on 18 April 2020
I won't go into detail about the storyline of the book, as that is covered in the commentary in the kindle purchase.
There are 2 things that I want in a book. Firstly not wanting to put it down and secondly not wanting the book to end. The book met the first criterion but I couldn’t wait to finish it. There is no doubt it was well written but I didn’t enjoy reading the book. It was awful, degrading and shocking. I was angry that significant players did not protect the children including the Grandmother. It is astonishing that trauma can have such a profound affect on children. I am glad there was professional insight at the end to explain this to some degree.
