Rosie Batty knows pain no woman should have to suffer. Her son was killed by his father in a violent incident in February 2014, a horrendous event that shocked not only the nation, but the world. Greg Anderson murdered his 11-year-old son Luke and was then shot by police at the Tyabb cricket oval. Rosie had suffered years of family violence, and had had intervention and custody orders in place in an effort to protect herself and her son. Rosie has since become an outspoken and dynamic crusader against domestic violence, winning hearts and mind all over Australia with her compassion, courage, grace and forgiveness.

In January 2015, Rosie was named Australian of the Year, 2015. Inspiring, heartfelt and profoundly moving, this is Rosie's story.

Rosie Batty is an amazing woman

A Must Read

Could not put this book down, read it in 2 days. Rosie gives an extremely honest account of trauma of living with a mentally ill partner and the disappointments she experienced along the way. Every woman should read this book. It enlightened me on how the legal system in this country can completely let down a victim of domestic abuse and how the laws need to be radically changed.
