A dear friend of mine, Katelin Maloney, launched her debut novel Drowning yesterday.
Katelin is extremely involved as an advocate against domestic violence and her novel shows her stance. The novel focuses around the lives of Rebecca and Mitch, a doctor and his wife. Mitch continuously escalates his violent behavior towards his wife. It’s a book you won’t soon forget and will want to share with the women in your life.
Below is my review which, for some reason, isn’t showing up yet:
Katelin Maloney’s debut novel, Drowning, is an outstanding example of what has become an all too common reality for women living with domestic violence. It provides a harsh and realistic window into the lives of victims without pity or the ‘why do they stay’ mentality. The dream sequences are superb, lending depth and insight to Rebecca’s struggle. This would make an excellent Book Club or Book-of-the-Month selection to open the lines of communication to anyone who may be experiencing any sort of domestic violence in their life. Well done, Katelin!
