Behind The Mask : One Woman's Survival of Abusive Love
A young girl dreams of finding her Prince Charming and falls head over heels in love, only to discover early on that she has been completely deceived. Caught in a resentful, angry, emotionally and physically abusive relationship, she tears away the mask behind which hides a love without compassion. Only a few years earlier she had graduated from university and was blissfully happy and enjoying life. Love, she thought, would just add to her blessings. Now she finds herself stranded on an island in Thailand with no passport or return ticket to Australia and fearing for her safety and life. Still dreaming about a love without hurt, she is determined to control resentment and focus on shaming the behaviour that let her down.

Our customer reviews
Behind the Mask is a story of struggle and survival. It is an intriguing read which I found hard to put down. Even though it is simply written it has an important message. Some books are written to entertain or for escapism but this was a story for learning and lessons. Some readers may find Behind the Mask an eye opener. What drives people to behave the way they do? Is it their psychological make up? This is a book worth reading.show moreby Claire
This book is definitely a must read! Deception in love is a realty that hurts a lot once experienced. Behind the Mask vividly describes what a young girl went through and the emotional distress attached. With its flowing style of writing and captivating plot this book really got me intrigued and I just could not stop reading. I also got attached to the author and in fact I just started reading her second book Bon Voyage! Definitely recommend it!show moreby Noel Bezzina
