"Where Would I Be" by Laura Johnson
What a story this author gives the reader quite a story of Lisa Jenson and Marcella [Marc] Cavell. 'Where Would I Be' entails a little bit of it all from 'love, manipulation, possessiveness, triumph, loss, drama, depression, strength, family, friends and to redemption.' This story will put one on quite a horrible emotional ride of a survivor's life of domestic abuse. Who will survive? This author really does a good job with relating this story to her readers being once herself caught up not once but twice in domestic violence where it touches parents and even children too. Many questions will be identified and answered in this read that will be a great help with anyone going through domestic abuse or one knowing someone who has been a victim .... such as 'Is there life after domestic violence?' How will this love story work its way out? Will this James Harris change for he good or what? This is where I say you will have to pick up this good read to see for yourself how well this author brings it all out to the reader. Will this heroine be able to to love again? I loved how this author brings out Lisa's strengths. This was a very touching story that as you read one can quickly be caught up in the emotions of it all where it will feel so real. This is definitely a good read that I would recommend and knowing that 'true love will conquer all.
I was given this novel during the BWABC Literacy Festival on September 19, 2015 to read and give my honest opinion. Thank you to the author for such a good read.
