Publisher's Summary

From the author of Sunday Times and New York Times best seller Damaged, the gripping story of a woman caught in a horrific cycle of abuse - and the desperate lengths she must go to in order to escape.

When Aisha spots an ad for a 'personal introductory service for professionals' in the newspaper, she could never have guessed it would lead to such a perfect marriage. But you should be careful what you wish for....

Mark is sorry the first time he hits Aisha. His tears make her all the more determined to be a better wife, not to let herself down again. But however hard Aisha tries, she can't live up to Mark's impossible expectations - or escape his terrifying, violent temper.

Soon she is trapped in a cycle of horrific abuse and imprisonment. And with two young children to protect, Aisha must draw on what strength she has left to find an escape.

What follows is something so devastating it plunges Aisha into her darkest days yet. Is the price she must pay for freedom too high?

Cathy Glass!!!!

I really loved this book. It kept me engaged and was both heartbreaking and inspirational at the same time. Domestic violence happens all of the time unfortunately. This was a peek into one of those lives.

Best Book I have Listened to Yet

All Cathy's books are brilliant but I could not stop listening to this. It kept me away before bed and nearly caused me to crash the car as I was so engrossed!

Well written, well read and great story, love it!

Heartrenching

This story had me shouting out loud, crying, swearing and my heart racing. This is most definitely a must read, I will be listening again! I'm so glad she escaped from her own personal hell.

no fostering, but was a good and gripping story.

I spent the whole time waiting for when the children were going into care with Cathy so very puzzled at the end when it finished and no Cathy or fostering had happened. I didnt realise she wrote books not about children who she had under her care, but the story was good and had me wanting to hear more.
