The book captures a six-week snapshot of these women’s lives through journals, stories, and
poetry. What kept them going? Could they see the light at the end of the tunnel? Who were
their support networks? Each to their own on how they coped but writing this book together
has given them a sense of empowerment and support for each other.

This ‘must read’ book is born out of Simply Deez Events, (a Luton-based community group)
and part funding from the National Lottery. A percentage of the royalties will be re-invested
back into local community work and various charities.
Published and sponsored by Marcia Spence, CEO of Marcia M Publishing House who
recognised that these women had to open their closed doors and tell their stories!
