The Pumpkin Eater’s Wife 

by Tannis Laidlaw

 

Jeanie knows one thing.

She can’t get away from her abusive husband.

She tried. And failed. Has scars to prove it.

So, what about doing something more … permanent?

She plots; she plans. Each time he drinks, she watches and waits. Will he threaten? Belittle her? Disparage her? Roar at her? Grab whatever is handy and…? Or will he fall into one of his rare drunken stupors?

Is murder ever right? Can Jeanie get the new life she so desperately wants?

You’ll love this noir tale because, if you’ve ever seen a toxic marriage which is an inescapable trap, you find yourself wishing she should … she really should….

Get it now.

  1. Loved this book! It was hard to put down. Well written and intriguing. Really gives an understanding of the effects of spousal abuse, the experience of PTSD, and the amazing resilience that is possible after the survivor has moved from the abusive setting.The author keeps the tension up, and the twist at the end …wow! Her knowledge and experience in the mental health field is obvious and she certainly makes us think! I also enjoyed the descriptions of the settings in New Zealand and Australia. Now I am looking forward to another book by her…Half Truths and Whole Lies which is next on my list.
