One extremely hard hitting, but emotive story to read, Jennie Ensor gives us the characters point of view, from Laura, her mother, and her abuser - father.
It is difficult to read from all points of view, to be a mother and read it from her side, to really not want to be in the head of the abuser, but this is vital to know, and then to Laura - who is a surviving victim.
She is also putting her fears aside to help save Emma.
The book is dark, not too descriptive of abuse, and really made me think on all levels, from differing perspectives.
The writing and sensitivity that Jennie approached the subject of abuse with was extremely well, and a fraught read, but with characters that really played their part with the roles they had, I was emotionally invested.
Enjoyable isn’t a word you can use when reading about abuse, necessity to bring these cases out in to the open is, and Jennie wrote with such a perfect pitch to stir your emotions and delve underneath your comfort zone.
