Summary

A shocking true story that reveals how one woman was tormented to the very depths of despair by her husband through coercive control and continual physical and sexual abuse.

Broken in mind, body and spirit and completely isolated from the rest of the world, Hannah thinks she’ll never find the strength to escape, until one day an opportunity arrives....

Fasten your seatbelt!

Not for a great ride! This is possibly the worst Audible book I have read - if it was possible to give no stars, that's what I would have given it.

Spoiler alert!
Mean, ugly, brutal and honestly, I didn't find it very credible. So many things didn't add up - for example, HORRENDOUS abuse happening in a home where a third party lived yet no reference to how that person wasn't aware of what was going on... and others visited with much the same ignorance. Neighbours apparently hearing the abuse and no one ever calls the police to help... etc etc, a cover business that has no customers! The only saving grace is the narrator is quite good.

Horrifying but really worth listening to

I don't think I would ever have picked up this book to read but I am so glad that I listened to it. It really opened my eyes to the truly horrific things that can happen in an abusive relationship and the dreadful loneliness that the abused person finds themselves in. This true story is a real lesson for those of us who walk around with our eyes shut and say nothing even we suspect something. The sadest part of all was the end result for this poor woman, who to me really seemed she had been punished by the 'system' for being abused.

Listen and learn, I have.

Brutal

Excellent book, very violent, but everything needed to be told. The abuse was horrendous. The worst I've ever read about. So heartbreaking I found myself so sad for Hannah over and over again. How one person could suffer so severely and crawl out of that dark place is beyond me. Hannah will live with the affects of the abuse the rest of her life and that makes me so sad for her.

Moving!

Must read warning and memoir about the dangers of controlling relationships. I would highly recommend this. There were parts so violent, I had to skip forward a couple seconds. There was one chapter I absolutely bawled my eyes out.
