Summary: Rosalind is an appealing, successful 35-year-old businesswoman running her own company when she meets widower Brian. Romantic and exuberant, with four loving children, Brian seems like everything a woman could possibly want. But soon Roz begins to notice troubling signs that Brian is not what he seems. A pattern of lies and petty cruelties begins to emerge that, over the course of their decade together, comes to encompass a litany of physical, mental, and sexual abuse appalling in its scope and malevolence. Roz pours her anguish into a series of graphic diaries that provide a touching, profoundly shocking, and completely original portrait of domestic abuse.
My rating: 6/10.
