Publisher's Summary

Even the darkest secrets can't stay hidden forever.
When 29-year-old Cynthia Galbraith struggles to come to terms with her traumatic past and the realities of prison life, a prison counsellor persuades her to write a personal journal exploring the events that led to a life sentence for murder.
Although unconvinced at first, Cynthia finally decides she has all the time in the world and very little, if anything, to lose. She begins writing and holds back nothing: sharing the thoughts she hadn't dared vocalize, the things that keep her awake at night and haunt her waking hours.

John Nicholl cannot write a story, he writes masterpieces. This memoir of Cynthia Galbraith, self-penned while she's incarcerated is incredibly moving and poignant. It's a record of a bright, clever and lovely young girl became a downtrodden, terrified, non person. Justifying the way her life was decimated by her husband and everything else that entailed. My heart ached for Cynthia as her backbone crumbled under the pressure of the constant dark, evil that was her husband. I pray for her resurrection and hope that she has something of a phoenix hidden within her. John Nicholl as his eloquent and articulate best.

My first audio book experience

I have never thought about purchasing an audio book in the past but this absolutely gripped my attention. I could not stop listening and finished the book far quicker than I wanted. The narrator differentiated between the characters flawlessly and portrayed Cynthia's difficult experiences so much so you could feel her pain. I have not read the book previous to this and feel this could be a stand alone book as I did not feel I had missed out on any information.
Absolutely fantastic first audio book experience, down to both the fantastic narrator and the way the book has been written.
Highly recommend.
