Review: Into the Darkest Corner by Elizabeth Haynes
Catherine takes us step in step into her dark past and the post-traumatic world she now lives in. Having barely escaped alive from an abusive man she lives with OCD and has some major trust issues. It was so interesting to see how her normal world changed into a scary one and now into a dysfunctional life where she spends her days checking and double-checking locks, obsesses over what to wear, when to wear and which days to buy groceries. All this is the result of her terrible experience with Lee, the man who tormented her and held her under his control during their relationship. I like seeing both Cathy's past and present. It was interesting to see how events unfolded and how she came to be. When Lee is released it turns suspenseful and I anticipated every move. It wasn't easy for her but I was proud to see Cathy begin to trust again and gain strength to face her future.
