Engrossing Sad story Well written.
As a wife, a mommy, daughter, friend this book had me emotionally locked in from the first page. This is the story of Fran Benadetto, nurse, mother and abused wife of NY city cop Bobby Benedetto. Fran and her son Robert must leave their life behind and runaway to escape Bobby’s explosive rage and abuse. It’s a story about choices. What you choose to do with your life. Who you choose to marry. What happens when you know it’s time to leave? Did you make the right decision? Can you life with your decisions. I felt very sorry for Fran and Robert. I felt enraged by Bobby’s behavior. I felt upset that this is the truth in life. Well done Ms Quindalan for bringing us a story that took a look inside the picture on the back of that milk cartoon, so to speak. This author has a real art in storytelling.
