Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
When Stevie dies, she goes, not to a world of light and love but `the dark room' where those she has slighted wait to torture her. Psychotically knowing that hers is the only reality, she takes her victims to the brink of death, so she can ask then to, `tell me what you see.' When they don't see the dark room they are of course, lying. She is slighted, they deserve to die.
She takes a job in a hospice so she can be with the dying as they take their last breath, she makes several attempts at suicide, she digs in the garden, finding the truth about her `hero' father and herself.
A compulsive and hideous novel about a damaged individual's desire to emulate her bullying, controlling, adored father, the only person, she believes, who ever loved her.
One of the darkest things I've ever read.
