Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For eighteen years, Fran Benedetto kept her secret.  And hid her bruises.  And stayed with Bobby because she wanted her son to have a father.  And because, in spite of everything, she loved him.  Then one night, when she saw the look on her ten-year-old son's face, Fran finally made a choice--and ran for both their lives.--

Now she is starting over in a city far from home, far from Bobby.  And in this place she uses a name that isn't hers, and cradles her son in her arms, and tries to forget.  For the woman who now calls herself Beth, every day is a chance to heal, to put together the pieces of her shattered self.  And every day she waits for Bobby to catch up to her.  Because Bobby always said he would never let her go.  And despite the flawlessness of her escape, Fran Benedetto is certain of one thing: It is only a matter of time.--

This book about spouse abuse is disturbing but also accurate. I have worked with victims and this book describes the extreme difficulties involved in escaping a powerful abuser. The book is exellent although it's very disturbing. It's especially revealing to those who haven't been exposed to an abusive relationship.
