Her husband calls her Jane. That is not her name.

She lives in a small farm cottage, surrounded by vast, open fields. Everywhere she looks, there is space. But she is trapped. No one knows how she got to the UK: no one knows she is there. Visitors rarely come to the farm; if they do, she is never seen.

Her husband records her every movement during the day. If he doesn’t like what he sees, she is punished.

For a long time, escape seemed impossible. But now, something has changed. She has a reason to live and a reason to fight. Now, she is watching him, and waiting . . .


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Firstly it is a little bit of a slow burn to begin with but despite this, every single chapter is absolutely unsettling and will literally have you on the edge of your seat.

Considering that the entire book is set on this farm and Jane has no where to go it was still so compelling. It didn’t need any explosive moments of action as the steady growing of tension was just perfect and the whole setting was so claustrophobic.

I don’t want to go into too much detail about the plot as you will enjoy it a lot more not knowing and letting it all slowly unravel along with some shocking twists near the end. I will say there were some gruesome descriptions and definitely some ‘Misery’ vibes going on.

Overall if you’re after a heart stopping, edge of your seat, claustrophobic read then 100% this is the book for you without a doubt!
