Heroic Women in Safe With Me
As I received this book as an advance copy and the publication date is till 2014, I was sad to be unable to use it as my current book club choice. I loved it and think the other ladies would too! It was a quick read, but partly because I didn't want to put it down. It touches on several sensitive issues-spousal abuse, organ donation and death of a child among others. The central characters are all dealing with major life challenges - Hannah with the death of her daughter, Olivia with an abusive husband and sick daughter, and Maddie, not only dealing with the physical trauma of being sick for so long, but having a violent, controlling father.

Safe with Me
I got this advance copy from bookbrowse for which I am extremely grateful.
It is a quick read. Ms. Hatvany deftly links hot topic issues of organ transplant, domestic violence, loss of a child to death and women's independence in one artful narrative. She profiles a domestic violence victim with an affluent and influential background, very different from societal perceptions of DV. The story deals with the harsh reality of a child's sudden death and her mom agreeing to organ transplant to benefit other children, thus throwing together two women with entirely different lifestyles. An engrossing read which is also a tear jerker.
