The Dark Room
Available in paperback and eBook
Who will save the victims of this dysfunctional family? Most people prefer not to read about domestic violence and child abuse, pretending they don’t exist, but battered women and abused children are everywhere. The causes range from a family history of domestic violence to financial insecurity to alcohol and drug addiction.
The Dark Room could have been lifted from a contemporary newspaper article, but it is the fictional, yet convincing, account of a hidden child, a controlling alcoholic, and Stella, the wife he abuses. Who will care enough to befriend Stella, help her reunite with her imprisoned daughter, and rescue six-year-old Jodie before it’s too late? You won’t forget these characters. The author’s meticulous research brings them and their gripping story to life.
