Reviews for Run Mummy, Run:
This is a truly remarkable story of one woman's journey through an abyss of violence, cruelty and degradation. There aren't many books
which have me hooked from the very first page and which I feel obliged to read late into the night but this was certainly one of them.
Cathy Glass is such an elegant and insightful writer and I wish there were more like her...she achieves beauty and grace in her writing
without diminishing the novel's gravity.
From the No 1 bestselling author of Damaged, the gripping story of a woman caught in a horrific cycle of abuse - and the desperate
lengths she must go to, to escape.
The Book Depository
Absolutely brilliant read. Cathy Glass deserves great acclaim for this wonderful book that had my heart racing and my mouth dry with fear.
An astonishingly good read that I simply couldn't put down. Well done Cathy, another fantastic read.
Sarah, Amazon review
I have never quite found a book that encompassed all the emotions that come with domestic violence...thank you for addressing a subject so
well, it has meant a lot to me personally.
