Amanda Prowse has done it again! Another heart wrenching story. But yet her novels aren't merely stories. They are not purely for entertainment. Mrs Prowse has a profoundly developed style of writing into which she immediately hooks the reader into the psyche of her characters. Having suffered domestic violence for a few years many years ago this story made me numb. At last women have a voice through Amanda's wonderful works. She equips her characters with hearts and souls that we can all recognise. We are these people and they are us and that Mrs Amanda Prowse is a remarkable talent.
The transition of Kathryn Brooker to Kate Gavier is more than highlighting the journey of this woman. This book is an exceptional social study and psychological study of sacrifice and survival.
This book confronts domestic violence and human subjugation head on, no frills, no fuss, just the raw cruel and seedy reality of what women endure on a daily basis. I was absolutely gripped throughout. Not one single paragraph is tiresome. This novel doesn't attempt to shock, on the contrary Kate never seeks sympathy as women who suffer this don't. Mrs Prowse tells the story for many women and indeed men.
I want the world to read this book; for many reasons. One particular reason is that I feel this book can empower and heal. I thank you Mrs Prowse for writing and knowing some the emotions that even years later I couldn't make sense out of until reading this.
A haunting novel, a story of truth, a pillow to rest upon; these are but a few things of what this book is.

The subject of the book is not an easy topic and reading about the central character was hard-going at times. I felt that the story was well researched. It makes you think about all those seemingly perfect families you might aspire to be like. Be careful what you wish for....

My son's bought me a Kindle for Christmas, an encouragement to read again following the death of my husband a couple of years ago. I've not been able to focus on a novel since before that time, yet this book grabbed me from the start. I cared for the characters, and avidly read at every opportunity, wanting to know how they developed. The storyline is a sad one, but it is a story of strength and hope. Inspirational.

If you are ok to read about horrific domestic abuse then you will cope with this book. I found it quite distressing but was intrigued to know why the option the main character (Kate) took to change her awful situation was the one she ultimately took. After finishing the book, I'm still not convinced that Kate explored any other options, so that, for me, was disappointing. In some respects it was uplifting to read how someone could endure such abuse and manage to rebuild a life for themselves afterwards.

i greatly enjoyed this book. At times the chapters on her abusive marriage were difficult to read, but key to the story. I dont care for her vile and cruel children. I found the novel thought provoking and very hard to put down.

I have just finished reading this Kindle edition of the book. It was certainly thought-provoking, but for the wrong reasons, and I am amongst the sizeable minority who disliked it. It would have been much better written in chronological order. The author presumably took inspiration from The Time Traveller's Wife which is mentioned as one of the characters is reading it - well, that works for that book for obvious reasons, but not for this one.
On many levels this book is totally irritating and unsatisfactory. If an author must jump on the band-wagon of the abuse genre, then one would hope that they write a book which gives justice to the subject of domestic violence with proper research, including the consequences of so many years of such trauma. Although, unlike some reviewers, I have not experienced anything like this first-hand, I have gained a peripheral knowledge of the subject both through work and people I know. Kate's severe injuries were such that it would have been impossible to function on a daily basis without anyone having an inkling that something was wrong - and what midwife worth her salt would not have noticed something when Kate gave birth (twice!). Kate's children were apparently the reason she stayed - well, she should have found the courage to leave because they became totally unpleasant teenagers and adults. I know teenagers can be difficult, but these two were just plain nasty, especially the boy who treated his mother with contempt (patterns of learned behaviour?) Kate was an intelligent, educated woman with a potentially good family support system. She was quite capable of forging a career and a life for herself and her children, and surely no judge would have given the father access had he seen Kate's injuries.
As for the rest of the book!
