“Women are at last beginning to talk about their bodies, not only among themselves, but also in print. When I began writing Mrs. Blood … this was not the case. So many women have come up to me and said, ‘Yes, I’ve been through that too—a messy miscarriage, a still birth, a bad abortion—but I never really talked about it—the pain, the fear, the futility of it all.’” Mrs. Blood is Audrey Thomas’ first novel—woman from the inside.
