How she finds the strength to stand for herself is the message that the book conveys in an expressive language that readers will love to read.
“Tempered Steel” narrates the traumatic experiences of Mandy, a woman who faces problems early in life because of her dysfunctional upbringing. A submissive person by nature, she is exploited by members of her own family, which adds to the trauma that she has to face. How she stands up for herself provides engaging material for a gripping climax.
“Tempered Steel” is a reflection of the society around us in that it echoes the life of many people who are exploited and even abused, physically and mentally, by the people who are supposed to take care of them. Abuse from the family is very traumatic because one does not know where to escape and finding a source of solace is very difficult. In Mandy’s case, the absence of her mother in her life exacerbates her vulnerabilities.
However, Mandy refuses to be deterred by the forces that are contributing to her destruction and stands up for herself. She derives strength from the experiences that she had to face. Each bad experience in life had raised fury inside her and this build-up of resistance is finally manifested in a move that provides her with liberation and freedom from her current restrictions.
The narrative elicits interest from readers, and there is never a dull moment in the progress of the story. “Tempered Steel” will be loved by those who like family stories, tales of personal struggles followed by victory, and stories that inspire everyone to face their personal challenges without bowing down to circumstances.
