Description

From Library Journal:

Katha, a 25-year-old ex-model, is trapped in an abusive marriage with Tommy, who has stripped her of self-esteem and is obsessed with controlling her thoughts and actions. With no one to turn to, Katha feels life is meaningless and vacillates between hatred and pity for Tommy. A glimmer of light enters her life in the form of Peter, a young boy who, along with his two brothers, has been abandoned by his parents. A heart-rending story, this first novel relates the loneliness and desperate fears of the four victims and their struggle for survival. Unfortunately, the plot that connects these sympathetic characters is not as compelling as they are. - Mary Ellen R. Elsbernd, Northern Kentucky Univ. Lib., Highland Heights
