Isolation Junction – Jennifer Gilmour ✶✶✶✶✶


Rose is the mother of two young children, and finds herself living a robotic life with an abusive and controlling husband. While she struggles to maintain a calm front for the sake of her children, inside Rose is dying and trapped in ‘Isolation Junction’. She runs an online business from home, because Darren won’t let her work outside the house. Through this, she meets other mums and finds courage to attend networking events, while Darren is at work, to promote her business.

It’s at one of these events that Rose meets Tim, a sympathetic, dark-haired stranger who unwittingly becomes an important part of her survival. After years of emotional abuse, of doubting her future and losing all self-confidence, Rose takes a stand. Finding herself distraught, alone and helpless, Rose wonders how she’ll ever escape with her sanity and her children. With 100 reasons to leave and 1,000 reasons she can’t, will she be able to do it? Will Tim help her? Will Rose find peace and the happiness she deserves? Can Rose break free from this spiralling life she so desperately wants to change?

I have voluntarily reviewed a copy of this story and would like to thank the author. WOW! It may only be a short story of 126 pages but it made me cry. What a beautiful and sad story. I must mention that the story within this book does happen to people everyday and it really hits home reading this story. Also that some readers may not be able to read this story due to their own personal reasons. I found it quiet an emotional read to begin with but the ending was perfect! Not many books make me cry but I felt really sorry for Rose. Isolation Junction is beautifully written, easy to read and contains short chapters. But you might need a tissue. I would highly recommend this book to you all.

Isolation Junction is perfect for readers who enjoy a drama filled, suspense and emotional story with a dash of romance thrown in. Enjoy, I did.
