Prison will make or break you…
Danger and violence have always been a part of Susan Dalston’s East End upbringing, but being locked up with another murderess will have consequences that no one could have predicted. TWO WOMEN by Sunday Times No. 1 bestseller Martina Cole tells the truth about prison life, and how far one woman will go for justice…
Susan Dalston killed her husband in a final act of desperation.
Banged up in Holloway, all that keeps her sane is knowing that her children are now safe from the man who terrorised them. What she can’t predict is that the bonds she forms on the inside might just make – or break – her.

Wow! Wow! Wow!
The story starts off with Susan being locked up and starting her jail sentence, we are then taken back to when Susan is a child and how her life was growing up and to events to where she finds herself back in the present day.
Now this book won’t be for everyone. Solely because it deals with abuse. We are talking sexual, physical and mental abuse. It really does make for some uncomfortable reading yet at the same time it was heart breaking and made me soooo angry. Sadly it is something that happens to far too many people every day. This isn’t just a story about abuse though. It’s about women who no matter what, never give up. It’s about friendships and that mother and child bond.
There are some fab characters throughout this novel. Some I loved, others I loathed and others who I very much had a love/hate relationship with. One in particular really shocked me and I loved how the author could make me feel so many emotions when it came to all these characters.
Two Women was a powerful and hard hitting story that had me go through an array of emotions. At times I didn’t want to carry on at the injustice of what Susan has to put up with from the men in her life. I felt I owed it to her to carry on and read her story though and I am so glad I did. The author’s writing skills will have you well and truly hooked while you get totally immersed in Susan’s life. A truly gripping and brilliant story that has made me want to devour the rest of the authors books.
