The Kindness of Strangers by Katrina Kittle

10/10 - I was so hesitant to read this book because of the disturbing subject matter, but Kittle does such an excellent job writing about sexual abuse without sugar coating it, but she also doesn't alienate the reader. The characters are so well developed that you just ache for them. There is a good balance between the despairing parts and the triumphant ones, so you really feel compelled to keep reading. This book has such a great sensitivity. I really loved this one!

I totally agree with your review - its hard to recommend, because the subject is so grim, but it was quite well done.
