Summary

Caught in the hook of love, a young woman marries a dashing university professor. She moves to a rain-washed coastal town to be with him, but behind closed doors she discovers that her perfect husband is a perfect monster. As he sets about battering her into obedience, and as her family pressures her to stay in the marriage, she swears to fight back - a resistance that will either kill her or set her free.

Powerful, evocative and beautiful.

This should be on the reading lists of all book groups, writing groups and school study lists. Its powerful, honest and incredibly harrowing but told from a position of strength. The protagonist never loses her beautiful way with words, even in the darkest times.
