Returning Injury by Becky Due
Publisher: Due Publications (March 18, 2010)
Rebecca’s life just keeps getting better. With Jack away on business, she’s looking forward to four days alone to work on her new client’s PR campaign to help women take back their lives. But her past intrudes. Roy, the man who stalked and assaulted her years before, has been released from prison. Home alone in her big, beautiful house out in the country, Rebecca has to learn to take back her own life while facing her fears and regaining her strength. But will she be strong enough when she faces the ultimate test?
How scary would it be to find out that the man who stalked and attacked you, the man you helped send to prison, has been released? On top of that your husband is away on business and you are alone, out in the country. I love a thriller/suspense, but this book was different. It was about what many women have gone or will go through and that made it seem more real. It’s about taking charge of your life and doing whatever it takes to protect yourself. It’s about not living in fear anymore, but feeling empowered to improve your life.
This is a book every woman should read. It may be hard for some, but I think all women could benefit from it in one way or another. It will make you want to get out there and do something you always wanted to do, but didn’t because of self doubt. This is the first time I’ve read this author, but I hope to read more from her in the future.
