This is a great book to read. Barbara tells her story about meeting and marrying the guy of her dreams, only to find out he's more the nightmare type. This is the story of her life with a psychopath. Wine you and dine you and then try to kill you. All true, all scary. I felt so sorry for her with what she went through for years. Good summer read.
