  2. Oh, hell NO Uh uht even going to try to finish it Less than 50 pages in and I already can t stand Hermione Am I supposed to feel sorry for her because her husband controls and abuses her Well, I do NOT Hermione meets another woman something tells me they will become friends later on because that other woman is just as pathetic Yeaht interested at all to find out what happens next.


  3. This was a pretty lame mystery There was little mystery and lots of repetition of the same story line The characters were extreme, the evil husband was really evil, the meek wife was really meek It seemed like the purpose of the book was to moralize about sexual brutality but the characters were so extreme it didn t really resonate.


  4. I found this little book at my Aunt s cabin this summer and found out my mom and loaned it to my aunt what a fun find I really liked this book It s funny even though it s about a very unfunny subject The ending is much serious than the first 3 4s of the book I thought it was very enjoyable and definetly recommend this I would read Margaret Yorke based on this book


  5. I d give this one 3 and 1 2 stars as it was fairly interesting I found it not up to the usual par by Yorke The ending was definitely a twister I notice most of her novels deal with some sort of abuse or excessively meek women.
