Victoria is gorgeous and flirtatious, but she's also out of control, manipulative, and a danger to the people she supposedly loves the most. Her children are trapped and terrified, and her husband is simply trying to protect everyone and keep their heads above water. I won't tell you if he succeeds, only that the ending is extraordinarily satisfying.
I really identified with the husband, Chris. The author paints him into a corner and then beautifully portrays the anguish he goes through every day. All he wants is a normal family, but he ends up trapped by the consequences of his own decisions. It takes a monumental effort to break the dark cycle that Victoria has created in their family.
The book was a complete - and wonderful - surprise. I started it thinking that it seemed like an interesting read. By the time I was finished, it felt more like I had fallen down a rabbit hole and barely escaped with my life. The book is intense, as I said, and the emotional roller-coaster ride left me exhausted by the time I put the book down and discovered that it was four a.m. and I could not get it out of my head.
That said, this book probably won't be for everybody. It isn't a comfortable read. There are themes of mental and physical abuse, family loyalty, and the pain of loving someone who uses people to further their own ends. But if you have ever lived with someone who takes crazy to the next level, or been responsible for children that are in that person's line of fire, then it is important that you read this book. You'll be astonished that there are people like this in the world (there are), and that they are probably closer than you think (they are). In fact, I would guess that you know a few of them, at least in passing. I do.
This is a well written, thought provoking book and I look forward to reading more of Ms Muzik's work.
