"Everybody remembers where they were the day they heard that Paddy de Courcy was getting married"But for four women in particular, the big news about the charismatic politician is especially momentous . . .
"When Marian was researching This Charming Man she spoke to Women’s Aid and a number of women directly affected by domestic violence. Many of the women told Marian how their abusive relationships did not begin with violence and abuse but with charm and romance. This Charming Man will resonate with so many women who have lived with domestic violence, and who have been in abusive relationships with men who are charming in public yet violent behind closed doors.”
(Nicola Harwin CBE, Chief Executive of Women’s Aid)
