5 Powerful, thought provoking stars

Wow, Margaret never disappoints me with her stories. She is so versatile in all that she does and she truly is an amazing writer.

This story was not an easy read. The subject matter is not something people talk about on a daily basis. But I could not put it down.

Domestic violence is not okay.

This story will make you cry.

This story will make you think.

It will bring your emotions to the surface.

It will break your heart.

It may be a trigger to some people.

So completely thought provoking and so sad. So excellently written from the perspective of a girl being abused her whole life in one way or another.

Ms McHeyzer has planned and written this story so well that she portrayed the topic of domestic violence chillingly.

This is definitely not your classic love story. It is not your classic romance.

If you can handle the subject matter, then you definitely need to read Lilly’s story.

Lily will inspire you to never give up.
