  • I love it

    Katy’s life was a sheltered one, with her mother, father and brother being there for her. When she found out what her neighbor was doing, helping battered wives, she is shocked at first. When this same neighbor dies in a house fire she suspects it must have something to do with these women or more likely their husbands. For the police though there is just one suspect and it is Katy's father, Albert. In his shed the police finds all the evidence they need to prosecute him. Katy knows, she can’t let that happen, her father is innocent and she has to find proof. When she comes to close to the truth, she is abducted and suffers severe beatings of the hand of a ruthless wife beater. Now she has to find a way to get out of her prison. Her friend Jilly and Katy’s new maybe boyfriend Charles starting their own search to find Katy. But will it be in time? What a moving story about the life of the women in the early 60’s in Britain. It was hard to read how women were treated like pieces of property of their husbands and there was nobody speaking up for them. If it weren’t for the courage of women equally mistreated and fearing for their lives, finding the strength to build a new life for themselves and their children and then helping others in the same dire situation.

  • The House Accross the Street

    An absolutely gripping story from beginning to end, I could feel myself being drawn into the lives of the characters right from the moment I started reading. A stunning read from a brilliant author.
