Summary

Why? Is a story set in a web of despair, sex, unreachable emotion, and love.

One man's crippling injuries, caused by an unprovoked, vicious attack, ruins the lives of everyone around him. This includes Terry Meadows, a 19-year-old boy who falls in love with the main character's daughter Laura, 27 years before the opening of the story.

The twisted, interconnecting matrix in which Francis, Laura's father, lives, destroys and distorts his daughter's image of life beyond repair. It is a sad tragedy with an unexpected ending.

Not for everyone

This is not a happily ever after love story, but it did captivate me. I did feel lost at the beginning but as the story continued I really got into it. I am a romance reader but really enjoyed this story even though it's not your typical love story or even don't get the happily ever after. It's a story that leaves you thinking of it for some time after you finished it and will want to listen to it again.

A different kind of story

I jumped into this story blindly. Not knowing what to expect. Honestly, as I was listening I wasn’t enjoying the story. It was moving too fast and I felt a little lost. But once I got to the end I fell in love with it. For me, it’s the kind of story I want to go back and listen to again now that I know what I’m supposed to feel when it’s over.

I’m sure this story isn’t for everyone. It’s not a conventional love story and I wouldn’t even call it a happy ever after. But I’m glad I stuck with it.

Why?

This is a twisted, depraved story of two people forced to commit acts that bound them to the whims of a controlling monster. Because of these atrocities, they form a connection that leads to love but are forced to sacrifice it for their own survival. This psychological thriller shows how tragic circumstances robbed those two people of what could have been a great love.
