Beth is slightly bored with her life and at 18 she is ready to fly the nest, she feels she is grown up and ready to move on, when she meets Dominic in her mind he is the answer to her prayers.
Dominic soon leads Beth to his home and within the secrecy and growing up as a teen she doesn't tell all to her family.
Second Captive looks at Stockholm Syndrome and it is easy to see how quick you would depend on your captive if it meant you got to live one more day in the hope of being free in the future.
It is an absorbing read that looks at complex issues, and is extremely compelling. It also makes you ask questions throughout about what I would have done in that situation from various characters perspectives.
Especially Beth's mum Ursula, I also particularly liked that we got to hear Dominic's voice within his side of how he became as he did.
