How did the girl who once dreamed of being a Charlie’s Angel become such a cowed and submissive woman? Marion’s life appears perfectly fine but she is controlled and bullied by her husband, her only respite a once a week trip to the local swimming pool. A chance meeting with an old school-friend develops into a secret relationship. She could leave her abusive and unfaithful husband. But is it too late?
“As a woman I would like to believe that I would never allow anyone to treat me the way Marion, the main character, is treated by her husband. However the way this story is told makes you realise that there isn’t always a choice, especially when your own mother is almost as bad. Colette Snowden tells Marion’s story brilliantly. This book really made me think.” Sarah.
