Review of 13:24 by Dr. Kim Etherington, Professor Emeritus, Bristol University, UK

By Dr. Kim Etherington, Professor Emeritus, Bristol University, UK:

“It’s not an easy read at times, facing as it does the darkness of abuse. However, this is an era when none of us can deny the reality of abuse and by becoming aware of the impact on the victims maybe we can help shape a healthier society.”

“Rarely does one find a book that manages to convey the complexity of the impact of physical and emotional violence on children and their subsequent lives, while also gripping the reader, like a good thriller.
Mr. Hickmon writes with the clarity, power and passion of someone who really knows what he is writing about, and who understands the wide range of responses human beings experience when trying to deal with lives affected by ongoing trauma. There are textbooks that explain the scientific mechanisms that underpin Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but this book tells a story that reaches out to help us all understand. It should be read by survivors, parents, clergy, health professionals, social workers, and therapists. Or indeed by anyone who wants a good read!
