Book Description

What would you do? Your home-life has suddenly turned into a nightmare and you have become a lonely, silent victim. And you know it will happen again, and again... Just like any threatened being, you have just three options. You can take FLIGHT. You can FIGHT. Or you can accept fate, and FREEZE...

Choose! - But do it now!

For seventeen year old Lauren Hart this has just become her reality - Her life. Barely on the edge of WOMANHOOD she is forced to make decisions that will dramatically change and shape her life forever.
For Lauren - FREEZE - might appear to be her only alternative, but, to just accept what is happening is NOT an option. Her choices and decisions might astonish you, but her courage and fight, against overwhelming odds, will uplift you.

Life is too good, too full of promise, to not fight for it. But, get it wrong and WOMANHOOD might turn out to be an impossible dream.

You might be surprised at what Lauren can do - I was.

(Womanhood contains some adult scenes.)

What a page turner for sure! Womanhood is a captivating romance novel with unexpected twists and turns as the story unfolds. For a young woman, Lauren Hart has heart and she is not afraid to fight for her promising future. With a well developed plot, the suspense keeps you on the edge of your seat. Although somewhat surprised, Lauren's decisions demonstrate her power and will heighten her ability to be an unstoppable woman. You will definitely not be disappointed with this book. I look forward to reading more from Peter Butler.

What a great read from Peter Butler. Butler's style of writing was at a good pace, and there wasn't a boring moment. I thought the scenes were very imaginative with very attachable characters. The mixture of suspense and romance was a great mixture, not too much, and not too little. I would recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic read! February 24, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an intense and mind tingling thriller. Peter Butler has written an absolute gem. Although it is fiction, it really makes you stop and think what you would do if you found yourself in the same situation as the main character, Lauren Hart. I do not like to talk about the plots of books that I read when I do a review as I would never want to ruin a good book for another reader. But I will say but the storyline is excellent! The author is very good with descriptive wording really makes all of the action in the story come on live in your imagination. There are also a lot of good twists and unexpected turns that truly keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time you are reading. A great book indeed! Five big stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing read!! February 4, 2015
By Anna

What a drama-filled thriller and brain tingle that had me on the edge of my seat from the moment I started reading. Peter Butler has done a fantastic job of crafting an engaging, and over all great story! The storyline is exceptional and really flows quite nicely. There are just enough twists & turns presented and perfectly placed so you really don’t know what to expect next as you read. The main character, Lauren Hart, is very likeable and easy to relate to, so you really form this camaraderie & bond with her plights as you read along and get more engaged. I really was pulling for her. All-in-all I found this to be a great book and well worth putting on your winter reading list! I give it 5 big stars!

4.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing from beginning to end. February 23, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lauren is one tough little cookie and I feel like I know her now thanks to the excellent writing style of Mr. Butler, he brought her to life on the page. The character descriptions and mannerisms are spot on and I had no trouble at all picturing them in my head as I read through. It had me hooked right from the first page, I couldn’t put it down. I will be highly recommending this author to all my friends and will be checking out his other offerings myself. Fantastic Read! Kudos Mr. Butler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable read. January 29, 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I totally enjoy reading this book. The main character is Lauren Hart a seventeen year old girl. She is facing tough situation at home with her stepfather, Lachie Grimley and has to fight her way to a better life. The characters are well-developed and feel very real. The struggles and choices that Lauren has to be made pulled them right into my heart.

I will certainly be reading other works by the same author, Peter Bulter.

More About the Author


Everything I write is fiction, except the true parts...

I began my working life in radio and then as a voice-over artist. Early on in my career I took a job with a T.V station as their Production Manager which had me writing, producing and more often than not voicing the commercials we made. This led to offers of voice work from recording studios and advertising agencies. I loved my first toe-dip into writing, but with bills to pay, the lifestyle that being a voice-over artist provided won me over. This career deflection caused my days to be spent whispering or shouting into microphones in recording studios instead of punching letters on a keyboard.

A hiatus can be a good thing if you can learn from it and this choice exposed me to the written words of some truly excellent writers (it's true - many fine writers pay their bills by writing advertising copy). They gave me a terrific appreciation of the importance of sentence structure: the way the words flow off the tongue and into the ear make a huge difference as to whether the message is received and accepted - or not. It is near impossible to make a poor script sound nice, but conversely, one that is well written just automatically sings and gives the listener (and reader) a bountiful choice of interpretation - of color and depth of understanding.

Believable, natural dialog and the description of action scenes are the areas I consider most important in my novels. Setting is also very important. Finding the right balance between description and narrative is a never ending challenge, but, I would prefer my readers remembered my scenes and story rather than the dress the protagonist wore or the house he or she lived in. This balance is also critical in the way a character's feelings and aspirations are developed. Too much character 'soul searching' in one passage of the book can lead readers to become disinterested - and we don't want that!

As a writer, I have a job: - to be a storyteller - to entertain the brains behind the eyes that read the words. That's the minimum requirement. The ultimate achievement is to enthrall, beguile and compel those minds to want to keep on delving deeper into my stories.

A fiction author uses words and order to create a sketch; a framework for the reader's imagination to fill-in and give color to an imaginary scene. Simply put, we authors are trying to get you to visualize a story, and I can't see how you knowing the writer has a truck-load of kids and a PhD in something will help that process. With my stories, it's 100% about enjoyment and if some ill-informed nonsense is called for, then so be it.

In case you're wondering I don't have either of the above... I challenge you - read Garrett & Sunny and Womanhood, and Kinky to see if a doctorate in Anthropology and a dim understanding of contraception might have made them better stories.

All the best, Peter.
