Well that shattered a few illusions!

The book is a good easy read, I felt sad for the abuse she was subjected too but as I turned page after page I felt that she really isn't a very nice person. Whether that's due to the abuse I'm not sure. The ONLY question on my mind if this had happened to me is if the filthy man had done it to anyone else... Either sister or daughter... To have kept quiet and allowed that possibility is so unbelievably selfish. She uses key words about herself ... Making her sound dramatic or important and unpleasant demeaning words about others when describing them ... She says her husband had a breakdown, but quite honestly it sounds like the poor chap just got sick to death of her (I was and I'd only read her book, not lived with her absences and raising his daughters while she flounced off every five minutes). I want to read the other books by the Nolan's as I'm now interested .. You almost get the impression Anne is feeling a little unloved and wants to shout out to the world ... All in all I started the book with an open mind and finished not liking this woman much.
