A short story for fans of Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve. Step into the fragile domestic world of Roar and discover the unforgettable voice of Nicole Trope, best-selling author of The Secrets in Silence, Three Hours Late and The Boy Under the Table.
The baby sleeps peacefully, filled with milk and contentment. The man on the bed breathes his way into the darkness, filled with rage. Was there ever really a choice?
From the queen of searing family drama and suspense comes a short story about the fierce bonds between mother and child, the things we sacrifice to protect the ones we love and the desperate choices we make when there's nowhere left to run.

I really like the realism of this story, to which many mothers would identify.
It is suspenseful and beautifully narrated by Susan Stratford.
This tale would appeal to anyone, especially those facing marriage difficulties, but few would take the drastic step of this young mother.
Addicted to Audible.
Loved this story!
Didn't enjoy the narration so much.
But found the story gripping.. Recommend to new mums
