This is an account of the author's apparently cruel loveless marriage. Indeed it seems that the relationship was awful from the start. It would have been good if she had learned to stand up for herself, the only way to deal with bullies is to stand up to them.

She knew what her husband was like before they married and yet she went through with it and allowed herself to become a doormat. How much blame must she take for the way her life unfolded?

The dislike seemed to be mutual from the start so I wonder why they married and remained married for some years.

The author describes her husband as a nasty, blaspheming, foul-mouthed bully who delighted in hard pornography, and who humiliated his wife sexually. And yet he is a rector! A man of God!

What are the author's motives for writing such a book? Revenge? Unburdening? But has it really helped anyone?

She denigrates herself mercilessly, repeatedly refers to herself as stupid, useless etc. however she received a 2:1 in her chosen subject at uni, thus achieving the same grade as her husband! Surely this could have boosted her confidence.

One reviewer Alyssa Morgan, (alias Lyssa) says that there is a happy ending, although I believe that the happiness should be considered with caution as Freya is aware that Simon will always be around, and there will be more "rounds" to fight in the future.

I would love to hear that Freya had found it in her heart to forgive. Admittedly I have not had to endure her struggles. But my life has been far from a bed of roses. I too have suffered from various horrors. Maybe the worst was going through the trauma of the brutal murder of a dear friend. The details, when they emerged were horrific, far too dreadful to record here.

I'm sorry to disagree with the other five-star reviewers but I thought this a dreadful litany of self-pity and complaint, and I speak as one who has read memoirs of people who have faced abuse in their lives. I only sampled the book thank goodness but even at a pound to buy, it would be too much. From the moment the story opens, there is a "poor me" victim whine, which I don't find in other memoirs. The author may have had low self-esteem but Steven did not hide what kind of person he was and had her ironing his shirts and demanding sex on demand from the very earliest days of their "courtship". And yet she willingly went on to marry him after a year or so, knowing what he was like.

What I have read of the book is one long whine and whinge: she even complains because he wanted to name both cats! He must have had some redeeming features, to marry him in the first place - but according to this book, he had none while she was a poor, passive little thing. She even had breast surgery because he wanted it - yet normally patients are vetted thoroughly to ensure that they are having it for the right reasons. The book comes across as one long drone of how horrible her husband was and how badly she was treated by him.

It isn't well-written; it reads like a shopping list and I am surprised to read that she is a published author. Hopefully her novels are much better-written than this. In fact, it is probably one of the most badly-written books I have read to date.

Do not waste your money on this. One of the worst written books I have ever read.

As a previous reviewer has already commented - one long whine.

You knew what he was like before you foolishly married him and to even contemplate having children with him - well, why??

Why stay for 17 years? Have you never heard of women's refuge? Must have done being a vicars wife.
