About the book:
Jenna’s debut novel, October Snow [*Affiliate link], is the story of Josie Kane – a battered mother who, after escaping her abusive husband, is falling into an abyss of unresolved rage.
Jenna says, “I wrote this novel for abused mothers because in my experience, the Family Court often takes up where a batterer leaves off. Like the character of ‘Josie Kane’, many of these women are every bit as injured by a paternalistic – even oppressive – FC system as they are by an abuser. Their experiences in the court are simply another betrayal. As a society, we pay little attention to the outcome of battered mothers – both legally and culturally.”
