"I read Returning Injury not knowing what to expect. I was amazed at how it changed my life. After reading this book I decided to go back to school and get my degree, something I wanted to do for years but never did. I knew I had to make a change in my life and in less than six weeks I was a college student. Thank you Becky Due for giving me the motivation to improve myself, I never expected a book to move me like this one has.
"There are many problems that everyone may face in their lives and abuse is very common in society today. The storyline shows that every person who has experienced abuse can overcome their fears and move on with their lives. The book was well written and was full of suspense, emotion, love and hope. This is a great book for anyone who has been abused and I especially liked how the author incorporated the PR work into the story."
"Returning Injury by Becky Due is a captivating novel about fear and courage and a young woman named Rebecca. Rebecca is a survivor of severe abuse suffered from a former boyfriend, Roy. Rebecca was responsible for putting Roy in prison. During the time he was in prison, Rebecca has created a new life for herself with a new job and husband.

In the course of her new job, Rebecca has come in contact with a woman who lectures on women's abuse issues. Seeing her own experience reflected in the speaker's lectures, Rebecca starts to examine her own life and the values she has absorbed. The author uses this context to bring out a lot of information on abuse and how it affects women and all of society. This story allows the reader to made aware of the abuse of women and how it is tolerated and even encouraged in our society. It makes the reader question why it exists and what can be done about it."
"This is a help book for all abused women and girls. It tells of Rebecca's life of being abused by a past boyfriend Roy. She is happily married to a wonderful man and is a rich lady with everything she could ever want, but, she can never forget what happened to her a few years back. She started dating Roy because her boss set her up with a friend, but sometimes he would be nice and then sometimes see, like a different person. When she decided to break it off with him she had no idea of the man she was dealing with. Even after he was sent to prison and she found out he was released she didn't tell her husband and let him go on a business trip. She was always watching over her shoulder and though she saw him everywhere. My thoughts on this book. It really opened my eyes to what is going on in this world. I am so thankful that I have never had to deal with this abuse. Beware if you are sensitive on explicit sex and words that it offend. The book will be a great read for anyone that has ever been abused so thanks to Becky Due for writing it."
"THIS IS A MUST READ FOR ANYONE THAT NEEDS TO ESCAPE THEIR PAST...THIS BOOK NOT ONLY LEAVES YOU WANTING TO BE A BETTER PERSON BUT TO HELP INFLUENCE OTHERS...TEN STARS FOR THIS ONE CAUSE I'M A DIFFERENT PERSON AFTER READING THIS BOOK."
"Returning Injury is about Rebecca who after years of fearing her past finally finds the strength to put it behind her. Her husband, Jack, leaves town on business leaving confident Rebecca at home. She chooses to spend her time alone catching up on work for her PR Firm which works with women. Preparing a proposal for her client you read about some disturbing facts about abuse (various forms) and what it does to women. Quickly you are pulled into her past and fear that it will catch up with her. Suspense novels have never been a favorite genre of mine, but Returning Injury kept me reading. I would find myself sneaking in to read just one more page and before I knew it, I had finished the book. Certainly hard to put down! I love that this story was very thought provoking. I related to Rebecca in so many ways and kept asking myself if I am safe and what can I do to be more "powerful". I will be taking a self defense class next month to empower me a little more."
"So I picked this book up one night and literally could not put it down. I was a little leery at first since I had never read one of Becky Due's books before. Yet, as soon as I started I was sucked into the story. For a new author I was incredibly impressed by the writing style, and the intertwining of facts and fiction. At times I felt the women's issues were hitting me over the head with the repetitiveness, but they never seemed out of place in the story, and what was said needs to be heard. If you like fiction and suspense please check out this book. It was definitely worth the read."
"This is one of those novels that literally tries to tell a story while really telling everyone a real story. In this case, the background message is a super important one, and something that every person needs to concern themselves with, and that is the treatment of women around the world. I know that every time I see someone bring up women's issues, the eyes start to roll, but believe me, if it was your mother or sister, aunt or daughter being victimized right now, your eyes would not be rolling. Once I started this, I couldn't stop-- its a good message and a good read. It was very emotional for me though, because I was attacked several years ago and those fears and emotions never go away-- and just reading this brought all those feelings back for me. This is definitely a good read, and I honestly think folks need to pick up more stuff like this. We would live in a different place if everyone did."
"Returning Injury is a character driven story about Rebecca, who is someone I, and most women, could identify with. Becky Due really drew me into the story with great imagery and character development. It made me take a deeper look at myself and how I have been living my life. Filled with suspense and many surprises, it was one of those great books that you just don't want to put down. It appealed to my innate nature to want to figure things out and just when I thought I had it nailed, Becky threw in a curve ball. Lots of fun and a great story!"
