She is his property, law and custom says so.
It's 1972, the French Revolution is well underway and Lizzie Fawkes has grown up in radical circles. Recently married to John Diner Tredevant who is a property developer heavily invested in the Bristol housing boom and is set to lose everything with the social upheaval from the prospect of war on the horizon.
Diner is determined to squish his wives independent and questioning nature by coercion and forcing her to live as he wishes. His passion for Lizzie deepens to the darkest parts of the human soul and soon Lizzie finds herself in grave danger.
I got the book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. To be honest I got half way through this book felt nothing had happened yet. I must admit I was bored by this point. I gave up on the book so therefore am unable to give a full review.
This book was an extremely slow book and it did not engage me in any way. I found I kept waiting for something to happen but it never did. therefore I am only able to give this book a single star rating as I won't be recommending this book nor will I be rereading it again.
