While the story isn't definably a happy tale, it is an honest onethat makes you fly through the pages in the hopes that Mazie makes itout free of her past in the end. The story truly is a tale of how"sometimes innocent people must defend themselves" and that opening upyourself to trust again is the best way to mend a battered soul.
The dialogue is raw, the character development happens at a life-like pace, and the story line - though depicting a desperate mother - neverwavers on the edge of fantasy. Though fiction, MAZIE BABY could arguably be a firsthand autobiography for someone.

Mazie Baby by Julie Frayn is a dark, jaw-dropping story of spousal abuse.Riveting and mighty powerful. The language is direct, right to thepoint. I could see the scenes playing out and they were not at allpretty, to put it mildly but this must be what it is to be a fly on thewall. Raw emotion spewed around in the openness with no disguises. Clear and precise. At the same time, beautifully prolific. Caught myattention and the fury to read on never wavered. ~ Brenda Perlin, Author
