He is her husband. She is his captive.
Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name.
She lives in a small farm cottage, surrounded by vast, open fields. Everywhere she looks, there is space. But she is trapped. No one knows how she got to the UK: no one knows she is there. Visitors rarely come to the farm; if they do, she is never seen.
Her husband records her every movement during the day. If he doesn’t like what he sees, she is punished.
For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting . . .
I am furious with myself for leaving it so long to read this book, it was fantastic!
I read it is one single sitting. It is incredibly well written and gripping fo the very beginning. I felt an intense connection to the main character and what she went through. I could see and smell where she was and could feel the really feel all the terror and emotions.
The descriptions, the pace, the story – it was all perfectly balanced. There was such tension, hope and pain. Topped of by a superb ending!
I honestly cannot fault a single aspect of this book. It is outstanding! I would recommend to everyone! Five huge stars out of five!
