I Let You Go By: Clare Mackintosh

I let you go

Holy crap did this book bring back some painful memories.
With a history of being a victim of domestic violence, Clare Mackintosh sucked me in big time. Mackintosh floods you with the gripping emotions of what it’s like to feel a complete loss of control over yourself & your own freedom.
The twist in this book is so intense, I wasn’t able to put it down.
This intense story really calls into question whether or not you can truly escape your past.
I highly, highly recommended!
