Summary

She lives with no name. She has never left her room. All she has ever known is pain and abuse.  

Until now.  

Today, she will breathe fresh air for the first time, feel sunshine against her skin, and even witness human kindness.  

But she has a point to make - a bleak, violent point - and when she meets her neighbour, Serenity, she finds the perfect pupil.  

Forced to endure a lesson distilled from a nightmarish existence, Serenity must face unflinching evil, witness the unspeakable, and question her most deeply-held views until at last she has no choice but to fight for her family’s survival.

A Brutal but Well Worth Listen.

This is a brutal listen, but it is so masterfully crafted that you can’t help but keep going with it. There were times that I found myself squirming a little at what the characters are going through but really egging them on.
It deals with a topic that is not comfortable but it’s something that does need talking about in my opinion. Just because something is uncomfortable doesn’t mean we should ignore it, and I imagine it goes on more than we realise.
It really gives some gives some food for thought as well about how trauma and environment have an impact of the psyche.
Narrator Tara Court does a fantastic job with putting the emotion into the characters and what they were going through.
This isn’t extreme for the sake of it, it has a deep message to it that although I really found the subject matter really uncomfortable I’m glad I’ve listened to this book.
