Child-protection social worker Lexie Doucette tumbles into her profession by chance and has a quick and dramatic introduction to this challenging and essential line of work. Fuelled by outrage at the cyclical pattern of abuse that leaves innocent children in its wake, Lexie draws upon her seemingly bottomless supply of empathy to motivate her to get through the long days. "No Easy Answers" is a compelling collection of interrelated short stories about the social work profession, told from the perspective of a child-welfare social worker. Though fictional, the tales are based on the author's many years of experience. Raw, powerful, and candid in its depiction of an often-misunderstood profession, the collection offers the reader a startlingly real picture of child-protection investigations and case-work, as well as insight into the conflicted emotional life of a social worker. "No Easy Answers" will appeal to the general reader, and may be of particular interest to those working and/or teaching in the social work field, and related professions.
