Cover in category: 'Non-Fiction' > 'Biography & Autobiography'
Sometimes, nightmares really do come true. Tammy is an Indigenous Australian woman whose determination leads to her surviving the brutality of domestic violence over a six year period, against all odds, after the corrupt local police refuse to help. Each time she calls them for help, the local police amusedly advise her that her abusive spouse is well within his rights to harm her. Imprisoned, repeatedly raped, yet too ashamed to confide in her family, she finally gains the strength to escape after the birth of her son.
Nine years later, he tracks her down. The injuries he inflicts upon her are so severe, she is left profoundly Deaf and legally blind. Now living in a new country under a new name, this is her story.
