In Australia one in four children are exposed to domestic violence, according to White Ribbon Australia.
At the End of Holyrood Lane, a children's picture book by Dimity Powell & Nicky Johnston, seeks to provide hope to those families affected.
Designed to be visually arresting, emotionally incisive, and ultimately uplifting, the book is a tale of anxiety shown through the eyes of a small child with an intense dislike for thunderstorms — a fear shared by many young children. This sensitive duality of meaning evokes a gentle awareness for young readers who may be suffering their own domestic torment but who are too scared or confused to seek shelter from their own storms, whatever their nature.
Author Dimity Powell, joined me on The Drive Home to talk about this book.
