Review

"With A PRISONER WITHIN, J.M. Northup hits her stride. For those who love dark psychological thrillers, young Tiffany is trapped in the deadliest of mind games where each move is made in a maze of madness and exploitation." - Kathleen O'Neal Gear & W. Michael Gear, authors of PEOPLE OF THE MORNING STAR
-----------------------------------------
What would you do? How far would you go to defend yourself? Would you commit murder to protect yourself? What if the person doing you harm was a relative? What if it was your own mother? Struggling against an abusive mother, these are some of the questions Tiffany has to answer in A Prisoner Within. Fighting against her tyrannical mother, Tiffany has to make the ultimate choice: her life or her mother's. 

Shock, anger, rage, empathy. These are just some of the emotions I experienced when reading A Prisoner Within. I literally wanted to jump to Tiffany's rescue and end her suffering. 

The fact that the very people who should have protected Tiffany perpetrated her misery and that the authorities were all too willing to believe lies is an indescribable injustice. I was so wrapped up in this novel that I couldn't put it down and finished it in about two hours. This is not a "light" read and delves into some dark areas but I highly recommend it. I look forward to more from this author!  - Books and Beyond Fifty Shades

From the Author

My youngest daughter prefers to read books with a darker content.  She asked me to write a book that wouldappeal to that genre style.  A PRISONERWITHIN is the result of that request!
I wanted to have a believable story that would give a new perspective to"monsters" and "horror."  When I thoughtabout how I personally would define those two words, I knew I had mystory.  There's nothing more terrifyingto me than the sinister side of human nature and the potential abuse that wecan inflict.
 
Some of my favorite excerptsfrom the book are:
  • Mystep-dad's rendition of events was uncontested even by me and therefore, itbecame our truth.  Truth I'd never beable to prove or change; truth that protected him from suspicion andpenalty.  Truth that I now knew was alie.
  • "She'serasing me bit by bit and it's painfully obvious that no one can stop her."
  • Worse, therewas that part of me that thought if I was already being accused of it andpunished for it, then I should just do it.Of course, I didn't want to be that person.  Did I?
  • As I lay inthe late hours of night or perhaps the wee hours of morning, I felt content.  I'd been right to keep faith and trust when Ihad no reason to.  I didn't expect anygrand gestures or magical solutions to things, but my hope was fueled.
