A Lioness from Judea Roars by J Ehrlich is a thought provoking and poignant story as the author's experiences the flaws in democracy and justice. The author gives us a heartbreaking story of how she suffered abuse at the hands of her mother, siblings, and husband, and her ultimate abuse by the court system. But this is not just a bold, honest recount of domestic violence, instead, Ehrlich pinpoints how the courts turned against her, allowing her husband and siblings to manipulate proceedings, estranging her from her sons. Beautifully written and intimate, Ehrlich's book explores the cycle that allows abuse to spill from one generation to another, and the harmful impact it has on children and their parents. Beyond merely telling her story she gives a courageous and brilliant understanding of the imperfections in the system. Through this book, J Ehrlich urges readers to refuse to accept the status quo of the courts and democracy. This is a book that had to be written, and deserves to be read.
