Description of Book:
Senseless Sacrifice, Givers and Takers in Relationships is a treasure trove of true stories written by women from diverse cultures about the difficulties experienced in their relationships.
“Gut-wrenching and inspiring at the same time. The stories are honest and authentic. When a woman can tell her story in an authentic way, half the battle of co-dependence has been won. I could relate to their stories. Well done to Dr. Renate Volpe and Rene Steyn.”
– Ndileka Mandela; Mandela Foundation.
The first step to liberation is to tell the stories and this is what this compilation achieves. Like the Suffragettes of a century ago this book votes for change…. The writers vote with their words and feet and walk into a new life.
– Professor Dorian Haarhoff; Author of The Writers Voice.
