From the author of Sunday Times and New York Times best seller Damaged, the gripping story of a woman caught in a horrific cycle of abuse - and the desperate lengths she must go to in order to escape.
When Aisha spots an ad for a 'personal introductory service for professionals' in the newspaper, she could never have guessed it would lead to such a perfect marriage. But you should be careful what you wish for....
Mark is sorry the first time he hits Aisha. His tears make her all the more determined to be a better wife, not to let herself down again. But however hard Aisha tries, she can't live up to Mark's impossible expectations - or escape his terrifying, violent temper.
Soon she is trapped in a cycle of horrific abuse and imprisonment. And with two young children to protect, Aisha must draw on what strength she has left to find an escape.
What follows is something so devastating it plunges Aisha into her darkest days yet. Is the price she must pay for freedom too high?

"Foster carers rarely get the praise they deserve, but Cathy Glass's book should change all that. ****" (First Magazine)
"A hugely touching and emotional true tale." (Star Magazine)
This story had me shouting out loud, crying, swearing and my heart racing. This is most definitely a must read, I will be listening again! I'm so glad she escaped from her own personal hell.
to think she put up with it for 7+ yrs is terrible. The little girl kept her going I hope Aisha did find happiness in the end with someone.
