Jane: One Woman's Survival

Anna Kristell Romance
Free sample

This is a true story as told to me by the main character, Jane. It is a graphic story of both childhood and domestic abuse, which Jane has kept hidden for fifty years. Very few people have heard her story, until now.


She asked me to write it in order to bring closure to the past and to help other women who might be in a similar situation to gain the courage to escape, to survive, as she has done.


Jane is truly a survivor. She escaped from and survived two very violent marriages. She was forced to endure things most people could never imagine. Yet, somehow, she did survive and went on to lead a productive life.


"God has a plan," Jane says. "He allowed me to survive." Now that she is in her seventies, it's time to tell her story. I only hope I've done it justice.


Warning: At times, Jane's story is very graphic. If this is a trigger for you, please do not read it.

"A haunting, beautiful, and necessary book that will stay with you long after you've read the last page."—Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything
 
   Charlotte Davis is in pieces. At seventeen she’s already lost more than most people do in a lifetime. But she’s learned how to forget. The broken glass washes away the sorrow until there is nothing but calm. You don’t have to think about your father and the river. Your best friend, who is gone forever. Or your mother, who has nothing left to give you.
   Every new scar hardens Charlie’s heart just a little more, yet it still hurts so much. It hurts enough to not care anymore, which is sometimes what has to happen before you can find your way back from the edge.
  A deeply moving portrait of a girl in a world that owes her nothing, and has taken so much, and the journey she undergoes to put herself back together. Kathleen Glasgow's debut is heartbreakingly real and unflinchingly honest. It’s a story you won’t be able to look away from.
