Women’s issues

No woman can be unaware of sexual predators – Harvey Weinstein, currently in the news, or Jimmy Saville in the past. Times change and we are told we are becoming more advanced in so many ways but in this particular way, nothing has changed since Roman times! Women still remain vulnerable, the only difference being that we are now more aware of it.

Our church, St Andrew’s had a women’s day last Saturday (14/10) when the charity, Restored was invited. Their purpose is to help end violence against women in the form of domestic abuse, be it physical or emotional. They can be found at www.restoredrelationships.org

My book, Tarureka, in its final editing stage at present, deals with the issue of rape in the church but rather than ending there and showing just the negative side of the church, which so often happens in the press, it also deals with hope and acceptance in the church too. The issue is, I hope, dealt with sensitively but always with God and restoration at the centre.

I hope my blog followers will want to buy a copy when it is out in the next few months and also enjoy a story of romance set against nineteenth-century New Zealand life.
