This is a true story. Leslie had everything going for her.. a prestigious degree, intelligence, good work ethic, a job at Seventeen magazine, looks, and great friends. She met a man on the Subway, who later won her heart. Everything seemed perfect, until it wasn't. The day before Conor and Leslie were to be married, Conor hit her for the first time. They had argued before, and he had pushed her before but this time he went too far. Was the wedding called off? No. She went through with the wedding in spite of the feeling that it wasn't a great idea.

Conor, the insecure husband, took a new job in Connecticut meaning Leslie would have to quit her job and move out to a house far from her friends and family. Doesn't that always seem like the first step of an abuser? To remove them from having a support system in place. Over the years, Conor pushed her down a flight of stairs, threatened her with a gun, because jealous at the mention of any male other than himself that Leslie talked to, an ugly fights that often turned physical. Leslie couldn't leave him. She loved him so much, but will he end up killing her?

The writing of this book was mediocre. I felt like some parts dragged on too much. It does send a message about the motives for domestic violence, so that's good. I would have liked to hear what happened later on down the road.
