Desperate . . . it would be easy to play on that word. I was really surprised at this book, it came over very poorly. I was scratching my head as to how an author of several novels could release something like this. The characters don't seem to have been given any development or consistency,
It bravely tries to deal with some hard issues such as domestic violence / cruelty but it does so with a palpable lack of empathy. The main character goes through some incredibly harrowing experiences and then almost immediately we are plunged into a parody of Mills and Boone. In addition the key twist is so vividly signposted that it's really no twist at all.
I have read that there was an "uncut" version of this book also. I almost wonder if in trimming the book some of the meaning was lost As it stands, this is a story that needed more depth, subtlety and consistency. Sorry, not one I can recommend.
