That’s what he wants you to think…

A good mother doesn’t forget things.

A good mother isn’t a danger to herself.

A good mother isn’t a danger to her baby.

You want to be the good mother you dreamed you could be.

But you’re not. You’re the bad mother you were destined to become.

At least, that what he wants you to believe…


Firstly i want to thank Amanda for writing this book ,for giving victims a voice.

This could have been my story because i experienced this for a long time…

I was lucy … a victim .

I had to write a heartfelt honest review for this because this had a huge impact on me !

Had to write a spoiler warning so dont read on if not read the book .

I dont do spoilers but i cant read a book which so expertly describes my experience and not name it.

Gaslighting….. do you know what it is?

It is a type of psychological abuse in which the abuser denies the victims reality

Well its abuse just as much as physical and name calling. And it is damaging !!

I do believe people are starting to recognise the different forms of domestic abuse . It is important to see it portrayed in books and tv/film.

I left my husband 10 years ago and i was treated awfully and the scars are still there .

Amanda has written this accurately and sensitively.

Its also very realistic because when you are in that relationship you don’t see the trurh right in front of you.

I have enjoyed all of Amanda’s books which all deal wth hard issues .
