Book 25: What Have I Done? by Amanda Prowse

Desperation comes out in many forms. This book explores the only way out for one woman whatafter years of psychological and physical abuse from a loathsome husband. As mother to his children the thoughts of leaving were never far away but what would happen to them if she left? A harrowing, yet interesting story of control, deceit and eventual comeuppance.

I had convinced myself I was not going to enjoy this book. The blurb on the back screamed ‘don’t open me’ and the subject matter left me feeling uncomfortable and slightly nervous. It was difficult to read at times but stories like this need to be told. We need to make sure that these women are not forgotten and are left to barely survive behind closed doors. Some might say it was an unfortunate end for this beast of a man but at least he got what he deserved. 3/5
