Outstanding

Spousal abuse of any kind is unacceptable. This book does great justice detailing abuse an exploitation. Lack of available resources coupled with fear of the unknown has always been an issue with women. count me out. I know better.

Excellent. No slow parts. Horrific wife abuse.

A tragic example of a wife and mother that stayed with her abuser, because that’s all she knew. What separates this book from the run of the mill wife abuse books is the way the husband forced the wife into a unique and disgusting form of prostitution. I won’t divulge more or it would be a spoiler.

This book is worth reading, and there are no slow chapters. Well narrated.,

Horrific Tale of Survival

I couldn’t stop listening to this book. It had me sick to my stomach the whole way through, and crying for Hannah’s pain and losses. She is proof that with the right help and a lot of strength, anybody can escape domestic violence.

Brutal

Excellent book, very violent, but everything needed to be told. The abuse was horrendous. The worst I've ever read about. So heartbreaking I found myself so sad for Hannah over and over again. How one person could suffer so severely and crawl out of that dark place is beyond me. Hannah will live with the affects of the abuse the rest of her life and that makes me so sad for her.

Moving!

Must read warning and memoir about the dangers of controlling relationships. I would highly recommend this. There were parts so violent, I had to skip forward a couple seconds. There was one chapter I absolutely bawled my eyes out.

Fasten your seatbelt!

Not for a great ride! This is possibly the worst Audible book I have read - if it was possible to give no stars, that's what I would have given it.

Spoiler alert!
Mean, ugly, brutal and honestly, I didn't find it very credible. So many things didn't add up - for example, HORRENDOUS abuse happening in a home where a third party lived yet no reference to how that person wasn't aware of what was going on... and others visited with much the same ignorance. Neighbours apparently hearing the abuse and no one ever calls the police to help... etc etc, a cover business that has no customers! The only saving grace is the narrator is quite good.

Horrifying but really worth listening to

I don't think I would ever have picked up this book to read but I am so glad that I listened to it. It really opened my eyes to the truly horrific things that can happen in an abusive relationship and the dreadful loneliness that the abused person finds themselves in. This true story is a real lesson for those of us who walk around with our eyes shut and say nothing even we suspect something. The sadest part of all was the end result for this poor woman, who to me really seemed she had been punished by the 'system' for being abused.

Listen and learn, I have.

Brave woman

I sat through every minute of this book with out stopping, once you start you’ll be hooked. What a horrible life this poor women was forced to face on a daily basis, yet she comes out stronger and ready to face the world head on.. I’m still confused as to why the girls got taken from her, why did the system take away 2 children from a mother who was a capable one too but being a victim of abuse stopped this?

Such Strength

What an incredible story of survival. So much pain and sadness but such an opportunity to share to hopefully help others in domestic violence situations. Well worth the read.

True Survivor

Thais is very sad but true story of domestic violence at its worst! I was a victim of the similar abuse Hannah endured and unless you’ve been there it’s hard to believe how powerless women can be under the control of psychopath! Hannah you are the strongest person I came across in my life! Una Byrne has a lovely voice and her narration is excellent! Lindsey, mother in law has a lot to answer for! This book is a must to read as it is an eye opener to humanity regarding seriousness of domestic violence and how every one of us can help.
