A tragic and gut wrenching book, which gives a frank and honest review of mental abuse. It is not an easy read, and it shows how a strong headed, lively girl can get caught up in the wrong relationship, and before she knows it, she is slowly losing her identity, her confidence, and is tragically sad. Darren is a total scumbag, but a very manipulative one at that. I zoomed through the book as it had me gripped the whole way, and I felt every emotion of poor Rose. I have to say, every women needs a "Tim" in their life! I thoroughly enjoyed this book, as it was real eye opener, and one understands that verbal and mental abuse in some ways is worse than physical....

The blurb:
Rose is the mother of two young children, and finds herself living a robotic life with an abusive and controlling husband. While she struggles to maintain a calm front for the sake of her children, inside Rose is dying and trapped in ‘Isolation Junction’.

She runs an online business from home, because Darren won’t let her work outside the house. Through this, she meets other mums and finds courage to attend networking events, while Darren is at work, to promote her business.

It’s at one of these events that Rose meets Tim, a sympathetic, dark-haired stranger who unwittingly becomes an important part of her survival.

After years of emotional abuse, of doubting her future and losing all self-confidence, Rose takes a stand. Finding herself distraught, alone and helpless, Rose wonders how she’ll ever escape with her sanity and her children. With 100 reasons to leave and 1,000 reasons she can’t, will she be able to do it?

Will Tim help her? Will Rose find peace and the happiness she deserves? Can Rose break free from this spiralling life she so desperately wants to change?
I was worried about reading this book because it’s about abuse within marriage. I used to be married to an abusive man and thought it might bring back bad memories.
What I didn’t like about the book (which has nothing to do with the author) is the bad formatting. After every 1.5 lines there is a line space. Every time there is a double ‘l’ one is missing and numbers keep appearing in the middle of the text. I assume these are page numbers, but are not necessary on the Kindle. Lastly I have found hyphens in the middle of words where they aren’t necessary.
Now for the positive. The story was good, didn’t bring back too many bad memories and I could empathise with how Rose was feeling. 3*

Isolation Junction is a story of domestic abuse. Its raw, uncomfortable to read at times but important that people read the horrors discussed and the support that is available. It's not normally a topic I would read but couldn't resist. I empathised with Rose but also felt irritated with her at times. It really portrays the horrible manipulation that can go on in relationships. I did feel confused at times with the switching from past to present tense and 1st person into 3rd person but still enjoyed it.

Constantly tortured emotionally and physically as well as being in debt Rose yearns for a better, happier life for herself and her children. After six torturous years, her abuser kicks her out of their marital home and refuses her demand to be with her children. With the physical abuse stopped, Rose must struggle with the profound effects of emotional abuse and face her fears in order to seek custody of her children.

The overall story about a mentally and physically controlled woman had a lot of potential, the idea was interesting and some of the things that happened to Rose were truly awful, however I feel that realistically she would have done whatever it took to get her children out of that relationship and I fail to see how she could fall for another man so quickly, in my experience, it takes women years to mentally recover from abuse and learn to trust another again.
Also the fact that Rose kept vomiting... a lot... made me think she had some sort of illness!
The writing wasn't bad, though it jumped around a bit and I just couldn't get into the characters, it wasn't awful, but it wasn't great either.

.

Written as a work of fiction, it has elements of the authors own experiences. It was incredibly brave for the author to write this work and give a voice to the thousands of people who suffer abuse and are left isolated by the behaviour of abusive partners.

Its not badly written, but the authors lack of experience shows. It also lacks a cohesive and distinctive style. Which makes the book difficult to read as it doesn't flow along.

But given that it has an important message and gives a voice to people who often can't speak for themselves.

I was given this book by TBC in exchange for an honest review. The subject matters a lot to me as I lived through an abusive relationship although no children were involved but I could not associate with the main character at all. Quite well written , I will leave readers to judge for themselves.

The journey experienced by Rose; the isolation, the depression, the fear is one that nobody in a loving relationship should suffer. And yet there was hope for Rose and will be hope for anyone else who finds themselves in a similar position. A compelling read.
