"Flight of the Dancing Bird" is Tanjas Darke's remarkable and moving account of her life, told in her own words. It is a story of enormous courage and triumph over appalling adversity. Remarkably, she has survived and has found the strength to write about her experiences in this powerful and balanced autobiography. With honesty and inspirational courage, she offers a rare insight into the reality of dominance and mind games played by abusers, in this case her own father. More importantly she shows how the cycle can be broken and the abuser brought to justice. In a final, emotionally-charged chapter she relives her father's trial and describes her feelings while giving evidence against him. This is an extraordinary yet ultimately positive story which was made into a television documentary with the aim to give other abuse victims a message of hope while also providing a deeper understanding of a situation that seems incomprehensible and inescapable. Her story will remain in the heart and mind of every reader long after the book has been finished.
