My life became perfect eighteen months ago, the day Jack danced with Millie in the park.

There is only one word to describe the relationship that exists between Jack and Grace – Perfect. He looks like a movie star and has charm and wealth in abundance. She is graceful and elegant and cooks like Martha Stewart. They are never apart. True love definitely made them an example for all the couples are out there. 

Except for the fact that all plans that involve Grace mingling with the ladies has one conclusion – Grace is never there.  She never answers the phone. And she is painfully slim despite the elaborate meals she prepares. And there are bars on one of the bedroom windows. 

A perfect marriage? Or just a perfect sham?


Oh wow! What a brilliantly written book. Each page perfectly highlights the plot of terror and psychological abuse. Each character have been depicted in the right way, such that they perfectly compliment the plotline and work well with each other. The lead character of Jack and Grace start of so innocuously that I never would have imagined a far grimmer perspective than what I expected after reading the description. 

The narration style is simple and realistic and the easy camaraderie between the past and present has been beautifully played without disrupting the whole flow of the story. The title and the cover image is perfectly complementary to the entire book . 

My opinion: It is safe to conclude that I love the book and every element of the book is what I expected of it. 

My rating: 4 out of 5
