Book Reviews

  • "Another top tale from the best-selling writer."
    The Sun
  • " emotional read, insightful and beautifully written... There aren't many books which have me hooked from the very first page and which I feel obliged to read late into the night but this was certainly one of them. Cathy Glass is such an elegant and insightful writer and I wish there were more like her. Considering the ugliness of the content, she somehow achieves beauty and grace in her writing without diminishing the novel's gravity. You may or may not need a box of tissues by your side to read this book but if you're anything like me, you'll certainly enjoy it."
    The Bookbag
  • "From the No 1 bestselling author of Damaged, the gripping story of a woman caught in a horrific cycle of abuse - and the desperate lengths she must go to, to escape.  "
    The Book Depository.

    Waterstones reviewer
  • "  I have never quite found a book that encompassed all the emotions that come with domestic violence… thank you for addressing a subject so well, it has meant a lot to me personally."
    Ram D, UK, reader’s email.
  • "Glass has an easy style and the last third of the book (her escape attempt) is compulsive, can’t-put-down reading."
