Book Review - It Could Happen Again

"The confidence she exhibited was tragic in its simple way. Her whole being revealed to the conscientious observer that she was on the defensive, fending off the curious and the interested." - Sonia Rumzi

It Could Happen Again is a short story by Sonia Rumzi and shares with readers the gripping struggle of a mother who seeks to free herself from the tyranny of a man she once loved, but now threatened her peace of mind, her life and the life of her children.

Very often, we find it difficult to put into words about abuse we have seen or experienced. Too much and we are exaggerating. Too little and we haven't said enough. This book, says it all with just the right balance. The challenges faced by the woman desperate to leave, the torn agony by the friends who watch and the complacency of the society that tangles itself with "doing the right thing".

Whether you are looking for a read to pass time whilst relaxing the weekend away or you need a story to immerse yourself in to escape from the rest of the world, this is a definite good read. The language is simple, the situation real and the characters could almost, just almost, be someone you know.

Sonia Rumzi was an English Literature major in college; turning to, Medical Technology, for practical purposes. Born in Egypt, then immigrated to the United States; having tipped the scales, since, she has now lived in her, chosen, home country, longer, than her original birth place. Her interests range from cooking, to knitting, to oil painting, to photography. She loves to travel, documenting these trips in words and pictures. Adores going to the movies and the theater. For music, her choice will always be, Baroque, particularly Bach.
