This book is not for the faint hearted, the language fits the perpetrators of this kind of crime. The words used in this book are what you would expect from violent men who abuse women. Once you get over the shock you see just how cleaver this book is in its description of men who commit domestic violence.
This is a story that must be told, it could save women from suffering at the hands of an abuser.
A story of domestic violence, portrayed through a series of letters from the victim to her abuser, and the abuser to his brother. Author Neves has done an incredible job of describing the pathology of a victim staying with her abuser, and an incredible job of describing how the abuser justifies his actions. The main characters are believable and read as if Neves is very aware of the psychology of domestic violence.
I highly recommend this book.

This is the best book on an unsavoury topic that has ever come across my desk.
