A Voice from Behind the Veil is a poetry anthology which brings the voices of a selection of women from the Hebrew Scriptures to life. Each poem is a glimpse into a female experience which many women globally are living today Subjects which women may still be reluctant to openly discuss as they feel they may be judged or embarrassed – issues such as infertility, racism, work-life balance, domestic violence, parenting and mental ill health are covered to name a few.
Although the poems are told through a female voice this is not a book exclusively for women. It is estimated that 1 in 4 people will at some time in their life experience mental or emotional distress but many suffer in silence. A Voice from Behind the Veil in its bid to combat stigma, discrimination and social exclusion creates an avenue for conversation and restoration for all.
