    I think they will. There will always be repercussions of what happened, but they have to find some happiness....

    I've only read to page 74, what I like is how it written from a child's (Jack) perspective.

    From what I gather Ma is being held prisoner against her will in this room and subjected to abuse by Old Nick, she's even had his child.

    Another incident because Ma didn't do something she got the blame and Old Nick ended up strangling her leaving bruises on her neck.

    I'm no not sure how dark and horrible this story is heading.

    I think youve pretty much got to the worst of it, it does get more positive

    Yes that is right and when I told Marc about it he asked me to stop because he couldn't handle that as a context at all... You wont be alone if you don't want to continue with it.

    I could see the abuse continuing and worsening and it was starting to upset me.

    I knew, when I suggested it, that it was going to be challenging which is why I flagged that up on the other thread. I’m sorry if I’ve upset you

    Thing is, no matter what book is chosen there is the potential for anyone to not like it for one reason or another, and tbh if it's not a book you get on with - for whatever reason then I still feel that it is important to talk about how/what/where and why that is itms? I think your feelings are just as important as anyone elses and they should be acknowledged and discussed...
