Better analysis of coercive control than The Archers!

Everyone said the BBC had done a great job with the Rob/Helen story - but this was much better and deeper. But also funny - really witty and fantastic style. I laughed but was deeply moved. Couldn't stop listening. Great story. Thank you.

An interesting easy listen.

I enjoyed this family tale with all it's twists and turns. It's a great holiday book and in part, was difficult to switch off.
Sadly, it was slightly spoilt by the narrator's awful Italian accent and I feel it would be much improved by not trying to imitate the accent at all.

Definitely not a mystery or page turner

I didn’t return the book so it was good enough to listen to the end. But clearly not as advertised. Kept waiting for a twist. There was none.

Tedious....ending not worth the time to get there!

Any additional comments?

Certainly a relevant theme: emotional and physical abuse, and its affect on a woman's sense of self-worth. But as a female listener with personal experience, I lost my patience with the characters' long, tedious passages of self-reflection that didn't advance the plot. Not only was there 1 protagonist in first person, instead, there were 2 women given equal emphasis. It was actually hard to invest in either one! Don't waist your commuter listening time with this book.(FYI: the title is a weak representation of the story, and the cover graphic has absolutely nothing to do with the plot.)
