Anna Quindlen has done it again. She’s written a book that is every bit as great as the others by this author.
“Black and Blue” is the story of a woman who escapes an abusive marriage. She takes off with her young son and begins a new life with a new identity.
Indeed, she has every reason to fear for her life. Her husband is a respected police officer and is quite capable of convincing people to provide him with information if he were to launch and all-out search for her.
Oddly enough, he decides he could care less about her whereabouts, other than to find his son and bring him back.
It’s difficult to decide what to put into this review as it would be very easy to give away key points in the novel. I’ll just say that each event that occurs serves a particular purpose to the overall story.
I was so impressed with this novel that I’ve actually given it five books. Please read it; you won’t be sorry!
