Truthfully, I finished this gorgeous book the day it landed in my hands, from the second I began I could not stop. The messages conveyed, paired with simple flow, was genuinely divine.
The best way to summarise what I personally have acquired is that I feel understood (which, as a young woman, is something I not often get to say) rather than feeling silenced by experiences that are seemingly too complex to discuss and be comprehended by those surrounding me - relationships can feel isolating. It’s as though something previously silenced has been gifted… words, a story.
I thank you so deeply for sharing this story, it is one I will treasure for many many years but also one I hope can be shared with more. The wisdom you’ve passed is a true gift, one that I would like to share with those close to me and beyond; to enable them to delve into the same issues as I have.
It would be a great privilege to have you as a guest speaker; I will be back in contact with you regarding this!

Love On A Faultline takes you under the skin and into those intimate places where a woman's vulnerability lies. It shows how her fragile sense of self-worth makes her a 'sitting duck' for a dominating man and how she eventually struggles to free herself. A manual for reflection and a testimony to resilience.
Price: $9.99 USD.
Also available in paperbook via on Amazon for $17.75 USD. Languages: English. Published July - 2017.
