Domestic violence is an unfortunate part of many relationships today. Every year more than 1.5 million women are made victims of this relational epidemic. Has domestic violence become so commonplace that it is no longer considered a problem? Have we grown so accustomed to seeing and hearing about it that we not only turn a blind eye but a deaf ear as well? Meet Gina. She is the woman at the top of the stairs who repeatedly hears the cries and screams of the woman who lives below her as she is constantly victimized at the hands of her partner. Bearing witness to Zenobia’s pain reminds Gina of the abusive life she narrowly escaped from. But Gina can’t get away from the nightmares of her past; the tumultuous reminders of how she was battered and nearly broken at the hands of her contemptuous and menacing husband. Will Gina be like the many and turn her back on Zenobia, leaving her to fend for herself, or will she build an alliance with Zenobia to end her suffering once and for all? Find out in this compelling novel, Woman at the Top of the Stairs.


REVIEW:

♦️Nearly one in four women in the United States reports experiencing violence by a current or former spouse or boyfriend at some point in her life.

What would you do if every night you heard the screams and whimpering cries from your neighbor’s apartment?  Would you step in and offer help or the number to the nearest shelter?  Or would you sit idly by hoping that it subsides?  This is the beginning of Gina’s story.  As an RN in the local  ER Gina has seen many victims of domestic violence come and go.  As hard as she tries to mind her own business, the pain etched in Zenobia’s face bothers her and awakens her hidden darkness as well.  The introduction of Zenobia is shocking to say the least.  After a knock-down, drag-out fight between Zenobia and Percy, her boyfriend; she’s heard screaming at the police to not take him in for the obvious domestic abuse.  This is not as uncommon as you would think, women who are abused often become immune to the actual acts perpetrated against them.  They begin to believe that without violence there is no love. Zenobia is no different.

In my mind, I hear the music from When a woman’s fed up….There ain’t nothing you can do about it.  Once the tables were turned and Zenobia finally had enough, her life and Gina’s life changes drastically.  There’s so much more I want to say but to avoid filling this with spoilers, I’m going to wrap this up.  This psychological thriller is more than an expose on domestic violence.  It gives you a glimpse of vengeance taking on a life of its on.  You’ll need to add this one to your reading list to find out, will there be any relief for the Woman at the top of the Stairs.
