Life Hurts by Elizabeth McNaught My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is not a particularly long book, but packed with interesting insights from the perspective of a survivor (although as she says still an ongoing battle) who is now a Dr. I have known Lizzie's dad for years so saw the book appear in his FB timeline.
