Summary

A gritty and emotional family drama from the Sunday Times best seller. Perfect for fans of Nadine Dorries and Katie Flynn.

Beaten

Glenda Jenkins has been beaten by her husband, Harry, one too many times - and this time he's put her in a hospital bed. Battered and bruised, Glenda slowly makes her recovery. But she fears what awaits her back at home....

Broken

When Glenda meets kind hospital porter Frank, he offers her a lifeline she can't refuse. The pair decide to run away together, escaping the terror of Harry. But, fearing for her life, Glenda has to make the biggest sacrifice of all and leave her baby, Johnnie, behind.

Bereft

Safe on the Kent coast, Glenda finally has the life she dreamed of. But without Johnnie, she's a broken woman. Will she ever see her baby again? And will she ever be able to escape the fearsome shadow of Harry after all?

another brilliant book

I brought this book but kept putting off reading it. I am so glad I did, it is a really good book, taking you through the lives of many people, with lots of different twists, it ended different to how I imagined. I hope there will be another book to follow.

Very tragic story

I liked the story and the performances. Didn’t like the last chapters, totally unnecessary. Story should have remained focussed on main protagonists.
