Publisher's Summary

Martha Horgan is unpredictable, obsessive, and “different.” Townspeople pity the strange young woman, but they are also frightened by her. Ruth Ann Phimister’s narration gives full voice to Martha’s collision course through life. A Dangerous Woman was made into a major motion picture and chosen as one of the best books of the year by the editors of ALA Library Journal and Time magazine.

Thought provoking

Such an interesting portrayal of society. Mirrors animal life in terms of the cruelty to the weak and helpless. Ironic that such a good and innocent person could become 'a dangerous woman'. A great insight into mans inhumanity to man - and especially of how male dominance can evoke really bad stuff

- Charmaine "I have a DLitt and Phil Degree which must imply a level of discernment? I just clocked over at 60. The significance is that I have read a whole lot of books. I'm now revisiting some of my all time favourites - and enjoying some first time round books. Books are my friends. Audible is JUST AMAZING - takes me back to pre -TV days, with my ear pressed to a crackly transistor radio - but now SO MUCH better and more 'classy' from a Kindle!"

Nothing for the heart

I kept waiting for something positive or redeeming to happen to someone. This book was down, down, down. That may be good literature, but I don't want to read it.
