He, completely worthless writer.
POTENT! ENGROSSING! SUSPENSEFUL!
She, a young French girl marries He - English teacher, and moves from small French village to Windsor, Ontario. She - full of superstitions and fanatically religious and He - atheist, into mastery and control. With two small children and her 7 months pregnant, they make a horrific trip 1000 miles back to their previous homes in New Brunswick.
Dehumanized and debased She makes plans for His destruction knowing God is leading Her every step. Terrified of His temper, and bloated body taut, She drives away leaving Him at a service station 300 miles from home. What is His revenge? What about the baby? His punishment is devious and unrelenting. She gives birth to her third child knowing her death plan for Him is unique and his twisted love will be ended. A Time to Heal is close.
The French/English, Catholic/Protestant dilemma is dominant throughout this intricate Canadian story. In order to Heal, she meticulously plans his destruction, and by law she GETS AWAY WITH IT, however, the ending is a shocking gut grabber, an appropriate ending for this lurid tale. A Time To Heal is an alternate title."
