Fury by Kathryn Heyman – Our Review


Our Review…

A memoir that brings so much hope and promise. Born into poverty and violence in Darwin, Kathryn has no self-love or pride. Flowing through her life, a risk-taking victim of whatever happens, good and bad and just acceptance of events without the ability to control or change.

An appalling assault and the subsequent degrading court case and the attitude and sense of superiority from lawyers and judge leaves her at rock bottom. A friend convinces her to crew on a fishing trawler in the Gulf of Carpentaria, dangerous hard work with life threating episodes see a stronger young woman with a clearer view of her self and life. She comes through this with a clear picture of herself and begins to seek out love and happiness, finally joy. Confronting and revealing, such a great read.
