This book needs a lot of content warnings, because, you name it, it's in it. Beautifully written from a prose point of view, but overly simplistic from a plot point of view. The main character escapes her cycle of abuse because 2 people from her past wind up popping out of nowhere within 24 hours of each other and suddenly give her a magical support network, then instead of helping her leave her abuser, he is conveniently
Spoiler killed
and she is left free. So I didnt like how there was no empowerment of the main character and she just got ridiculously lucky by fate throwing all of these things in her lap in the matter of a few weeks. This was unbelievable so made the story much less powerful for me.
