Australian of the Year 2015 Rosie Batty reveals the grief, passion and purpose uncovered in her heartfelt memoir, A Mother’s Story. In February 2014, her eleven-year-old son, Luke, was brutally murdered by his father, who was then shot dead by police. Since that event, Rosie has become an outspoken crusader against domestic violence. A percentage of the royalties from sales of this book are going to the Luke Batty Foundation.
