Book Review: Returning Injury by Becky Due

Returning Injury by Becky Due is the story of Rebecca who is haunted by by abusive ex-boyfriend during a stormy weekend alone in her big house.  Rebecca has been happily married for 5 years with a solid career in Public Relations when she finds out the a man she once dated who attacked her has been released from prison.  Becky weaves a very suspenseful story delving into the world of women and abuse.  As Rebecca researches her latest PR client, she begins to recall the ups and downs of her relationship with her ex-boyfriend countered by fond memories with her husband.  Her real and imagined fears culminate to show the power and she strength she was able to have in the face of terror.

This book held me on the edge of my seat.  I felt the same emotions portrayed in the main character and thought about how I would behave if I were in the same situation.  Returning Injury was easy to read and uncomplicated even though it dealt with a very deep subject.  I learned a lot about how to protect myself and be strong in the face of fear.  I would recommend this book to women who need to know they can overcome danger in frightening situations.
