In sometimes exceptionally short chapters, Woodhams will help a reader explore the thoughts and feelings of abusers as well as the women, whom they supposedly love.

A very well-written fictional novel, The Outreach Committee hits home and easily pulls back the curtains of what might actually happen in abusive situations of wealthier men and women. Most people know someone who has been, or is being abused whether or not the truth is out in the open. Therefore, Woodhams book offers a profound opportunity to understand the psychology of both sides even better while making a reader ponder what justice might really look like.
