On the Other Side Reviews
Battered But Not BrokenDamita and Neal’s wedding day is picture perfect. To the outside looking in, the successful and wealthy couple has everything going for them. The wedding night, however, tells a different story. Damita is beaten by her husband and spends the night in her closet. This is just the beginning of a vicious cycle of physical, mental, and sexual abuse that Damita will face in her marriage. Friends and family realize something is wrong and try to get Damita to leave. She seems more afraid of what will happen if she divorces Neal than the daily horrors she faces with him in the house. At her wits end and with no solution in sight, Damita finally sees a light at the end of the tunnel…the September 11th bombing of the Twin Towers where she works. Damita stumbles out of the World Trade Center and subsequently leaves Neal and her family behind. Far away from her old life, Damita struggles to carve a new life with a new identity. Can she really escape her past or will it follow her? Robinson’s novel, "On the Other Side," is an emotionally charged story about domestic violence and its consequences. The reader is drawn into the world of the abused and the abuser in suspenseful twists and turns. The story starts out strong with lots of narrative about Damita’s short marriage. However, the pace of the novel races through Damita’s escape and new life in another city. The author spent a lot of time building up the story and the ending proved to be a bit anti-climactic and disappointing. Reviewed by: Flashette
This book is about a smart, beautiful woman who appears to have it all with a good job and successful new husband. However, once she married Neal, her life turns upside down as she realizes she doesn't know Neal at all. This story reminds me of the movie Sleeping With the Enemy.
Constant rollercoaster ride! I loved it! I must check out her others!
So many "girl, what?" moments. Better editing and more consistency needed, along with back story.
