Sarah Broadhurst's view...

What an apt title for this terrifically readable book on domestic violence. What horror when you believe you have found a perfect love only to discover, really someway down the road, the violent mood swings of your beloved … and what pain … oh this is beautifully told.

Synopsis

Crazy Love by Leslie Morgan-steiner

When Leslie met her husband Conor she felt she’d found the man of her dreams. Smart, attentive and devoted to her, he was all she’d ever hoped for and it wasn’t long before they were married.

But worrying cracks began to appear in this seemingly perfect relationship. For whilst Conor could sometimes make Leslie feel loved and cherished, at other times his abrupt, violent mood swings left her deeply troubled. And as the violence escalated, Leslie felt trapped in a world of terror – a world from which she knew she had to escape.

Harrowing and yet compulsively readable, Crazy Love throws a spotlight on a brutal, hidden world of abuse. As it takes you on a rollercoaster ride through hell, it tells the story of how one woman was forced to confront a painful truth: the man she loved seemed determined to kill her.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
