'The first time my husband hit me I was nineteen years old.'

For eighteen years Fran Benedetto kept her secret, hid her bruises. She stayed with Bobby because she wanted her son to have a father, and because, in spite of everything, she loved him. Then one night, when she saw the look on her ten-year-old son's face, Fran finally made a choice - she ran for both their lives.

Now she is starting over in a city far from home, far from Bobby. She uses a name that isn't hers, watches over her son, and tries to forget. For the woman who now calls herself Beth, every day is a chance to heal, to put together the pieces of her shattered self. And every day she waits for Bobby to catch up with her. Bobby always said he would never let her go, and Fran Benedetto is certain of one thing: it is only a matter of time.

Review:

"Quindlen invests her tale with rare pathos and even rarer psychological acumen ... the honesty of her storytelling is exemplary" ( Sunday Telegraph)

"Quindlen has got so deeply inside her characters that they gave me nightmares" ( The Times)

"Don't miss Anna Quindlen's compassionate portrayal of a violent marriage" ( Marie Claire)

"It is rare to find a novel at once tender and taut, full of insight, yet with a darkness at its centre - and that's what makes it a gripping read" (Margaret Forster)

"Beautifully paced - keeps the reader anxiously turning the pages." ( New York Times Book Review)

Book Description:

A woman on the run from her own life
