Outstanding! If I could give this book a standing ovation then that’s what I would be doing right now!
I was utterly utterly captivated throughout this whole story and have never wanted to shout at characters in a book quite so much in my life!
This simple tale essentially contained within three small rooms absolutely consumed my thoughts – I worried about ‘Jane’ when I wasn’t reading. (I’m pretty sure I felt slight anxiety for the days when I had this book on the go, so be warned!)
I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone so won’t say much more, other than that if you have a book lover in your life, as others have said – fans of Misery and Room – will LOVE this book.
Well, I say LOVE, but also they’ll hate it so bear that in mind… Can’t recommend it enough, brilliant!

Her husband records her every movement during the day. If he doesn’t like what he sees, she is punished.
For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting…
