Abused Men, the Hidden Side of Domestic Violence
(Second edition 2009) by Philip W. Cook
It may come as a surprise that almost 40% of domestic violence victims each year are men. Few resources and little support have been given to this issue, however over the past ten years this has begun to change. Philip Cook’s book(s) Abused Men, the Hidden Side of Domestic Violence published in 1997, and second edition published in 2009, along with the television movie Men Don’t Tell have been instrumental in this effort.

Once Upon A Time, There Was You by Elizabeth Berg
John and Irene Marsh have been divorced for many years yet mange to remain adoring parents to Sadie, who is about to start college. Sadie is kidnapped and they are forced to bond to help each other through the trauma. I’m not sure what it was about this book but it felt so trite and rushed. Almost like a first draft. Elizabeth did you send the wrong version to the publisher??
