“In this dark, sometimes raw novel set in Laramie, Wyoming, a young woman physically and sexually abused by her husband is being held captive by him in their home…This is not a book for the faint of heart, but it carries a powerful message for those interested in the roots and tragedy of victimization.”

Synopsis

Downfall is a harrowing tale of a woman who experiences life from a perspective that no-one should have to and one that many would not be able to survive. Put in simple terms, the story details a marriage that begins with beautiful promise and hope. Unfortunately for the heroine, Elizabeth, her new life quickly becomes something that only horror stories are made of. Her life during this time is chronicled through current day events as they occur as well as memories that are as painful that the only way which Elizabeth can share them with the reader is by using a series of flashbacks. She finds great strength within herself so far as being able to sacrifice and save the people who mean everything to her. Her children . . . The question is will Elizabeth find her own salvation before it's too late?
