Charlotte marries John. Things seem ok; John has a good job and he's going up in the world, working for the government. But every so often he loses his temper and Charlotte gets the brunt of his anger. During the 18 year course of their marriage, there are at least 8 incidents of physical abuse and countless of mental. Charlotte's family and friends tell her to leave John but she keeps going back, most likely because he has convinced her that she would be nothing without him. It finally explodes in a big divorce battle balancing on the cases of abuse. Written by <DntMesWtMe@aol.com>

I saw an interview with her when the book came out
25 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First of all, they actually had six children. One of them died in infancy.

She readily admitted that no matter how bad things otherwise were, they always had incredibly spectacular sex. This can at least partially explain why she stayed - not blaming her, of course.

The oldest children, BTW, wanted nothing to do with him but the younger ones did see him, something she encouraged. Keep in mind that this was over 20 years ago; I have no idea what may have happened in the meantime.

Have either of them remarried? I couldn't imagine anyone wanting him, but you never know.
