THE SECRET TO NOT DROWNING COLETTE SNOWDEN

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS NOVEL

“How did the girl who once dreamed of being a Charlie’s Angel become such a cowed and submissive woman?
On the surface Marion’s life seems, fine but she is controlled and bullied by her husband, her only freedom is a weekly visit to the local swimming baths.
When a chance meeting with an old school-mate develops into a secret relationship. Marion is reminded of the person she used to be. And might still be, if she leaves her domineering husband. But is it too late?”
MY REVIEW
This is one those novels that you never want to end.
I must express that Colette is a bold marvellous writer. I give full admiration for the incredible attention to the smallest detail.
This is a story within a selfish husband that only looks out for himself. Colette Snowden makes this story come alive through her words.
Marion once dreamed of being a Charlie’s Angel. On the surface Marion’s friends and family think her life seems fine, but she is controlled and bullied by her husband. He made Marion eat every single flower and sat there watching her chew the flowers. The torment is so touching that some of the readers will be able to identify what Marion’s husband savagely put Marion through.  With Marion meeting up with an old school-friend she is reminded of the person she used be. But will Marion find the strength in her self to pack her bags and leave her bullying husband?
I hope I won’t have to wait too long before Colette Snowden writes another novel
