Description

"Send Me No Flowers" is the story of a young woman's fight for survival. Donna Stewart's family is poor but respectable and hard working. Donna is beautiful and clever - about to go up to university. Celebrating her exam results with her friends at a club, she meets Danny Lester, ten years older, much richer, a businessman - he sweeps her off her feet. Despite warnings from friends and family, Donna enjoys Danny's wild streak. She believes this is the man she will marry and live with happy ever after. But it gradually emerges that 'Danny the knife' is a dangerous criminal - and a sadist. She is introduced to a world of drugs and prostitutes, where Danny gets his kicks by terrifying her. The longer she leaves it, the harder it will be to escape. But eventually, helped by a loyal circle of female friends, she works out a plan.show more

Review quote

"A brutally disturbing story. Truely shocking." Daily Mirror "Her story is horrifying and terrifyingly explicit in parts, but Tomlin's words are always believable. Donna's spiral downwards is the stuff of nightmares and a warning to anyone who thinks they can handle a cocktail of drugs and love. In parts I was almost too sickened to carry on - but I could not put it down. (5 stars)" News of the Worldshow more

Back cover copy

Donna Stewart is a star pupil. Hardworking and good at everything, her future holds much promise. She is leggy with long dark hair and sparkling blue eyes, but she's always been too busy studying to pay much attention to boys. But when she goes out to celebrate her exam results, she meets Danny Lester. He's ten years older than her and as a man of the world, he impresses her with plenty of money to splash around - a far cry from her own humble upbringing. She finds him exciting to be with, even enjoys his slight air of danger. Danny sweeps her off her feet. Her family are worried. Her friends drop hints. They think Danny might be bad news. But Donna quickly falls deeply in love, and comes to believe that this is the man she will marry and live with happy ever after. But it gradually emerges that Danny has some criminal connections. When Donna questions him, he hits her. Danny, it turns out, is sadist who gets his kicks by terrifying her. Donna realizes she has fallen in love with a very bad man, but is it too late to escape? The longer she leaves it, the harder it gets, and the violence escalates.show more
