Isolation Junction by Jennifer Gilmour is a book that for some reason I want to read so badly but I’m also scared to read. This book focusses on domestic abuse. Jennifer’s is giving away her debut novel for free on Amazon Kindle for 5 days to help create awareness for domestic abuse during this month of January when credit card bills are high and domestic disputes too.
I never share posts like this, however, I feel that this is a worthy book to share. I have already downloaded my copy and I can’t wait to start reading it. If you go download yours too, be kind and leave a review. Authors need more reviews and in any case, don’t you check the reviews of a book before reading it?
Jennifer Gilmour speaks about why she is giving her novel away for FREE
“My name is Jennifer Gilmour and I am a survivor of domestic abuse. I have published two books both with a focus on raising awareness about domestic abuse at their core. Whilst both aim to raise this awareness one is written as a work of fiction whilst the other is a compilation of survivor stories.
Over Christmas, incidents of domestic abuse reported to the police rise. Assault and domestic murders increase 25% during the festive period with a third of them being on Christmas Day itself. Bombarded with images of the perfect nuclear family gathered around the gold baubles of a Christmas tree, it can be easy to forget that Christmas is a time of coercion, punishment, and violence for many women and men.
Now I know it isn’t Christmas anymore but January can be just as bad because all those credit card bills come in alongside your usual direct debits. There is even a day in January called Blue Monday and this year it’s on the 15th. The date is generally reported as falling on the third Monday in January.”
For 5 days Isolation Junction by Jennifer Gilmour is going to be FREE on Amazon Kindle, this is the first time ever.
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 the 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 spiraling life she so desperately wants to change?
