Blurred Roses is a compelling, harrowing story about love, violence and the damage people can do. This novella is an empowering account of how one woman survived domestic abuse and kept her child safe.
‘I didn’t tell. For years I didn’t tell. And then I had to tell one person because I thought that if I didn’t talk about it, I was going to go mad. And then one person became two people, became three. But I didn’t tell them everything.
I remember my marriage in scenes. Sharp little memories slanting through my mind like splinters of ice. I’ll remember what I was wearing, how the room smelled, whether I was hot or cold. I remember what he said and what he did to me. The memories come up from inside and engulf me sometimes, like a storm. And then it’s gone just as quickly as it came.’
