About this deal
It shows how insidiously the coercive control has co-opted Eve's sense of self and her world view, she would stay for the sake of shame and social propriety than leave. I personally prefer her older books than the last 3-4 she’s published however would I continue to purchase or read any future books, of course I would… it’s Lesley Pearse! One scene in particular, although the event is told only in one paragraph had a deep and lasting effect on me and it made the overall tone of the book change.
From the brutal first pages, Betrayal is a twisting, turning and often harrowing tale of domestic abuse, grooming, the pain of guilt, and the dark shadow of violence and cruelty.
She is naturally reserved having being brought up not to tell tales but finally she garners enough courage to go to the police and report what has been happening to her.
By the next evening, mum and kids are staying in a women's refuge and major plans to ensure a happier future are in motion.I loved reading about all the characters and the storyline was just brilliant I felt I knew them all by the ending and what a satisfactory ending it was.
