Associate Professor Barbara Boswell was recently interviewed for the Cheeky Natives Podcast about her novel, Grace. The Cheeky Natives write: “Grace is a deeply reflective account of a family living with the terror of domestic violence. Perhaps what makes this living reality even more frightening is the common knowledge of this reality held by the community of silence.  Grace follows the life of a young girl in this family from childhood to adult life and paints a vivid picture of the lasting effects of having been a witness and victim to such intimate personal violence. The novel explores both the complicity of communities in which these victims live and the beliefs that allow a culture of abuse to flourish.”
