Rose Madder – Stephen King
Horror, psychological thriller, fiction, women empowerment, PTSD, survivors
Stephen King does his magic with horror fiction writing. Rosie Daniels, a woman married to an abusive man, escapes the horror. During her trek to safety and becoming her own independent woman, she faces some problems but quickly adapts. As time goes on, the fear of her husband coming back to her traumatizes her. Finding ways to heal herself and battling her internal demons is an incredible feat and she in the end lives peacefully.
I had always been a huge fan of Stephen King and some selected works of his. This one was recommended by my mother. I do love the story and the plot, its just the beginning is scary but that’s the whole purpose of a horror fiction novel. This title isn’t commonly known and it should be a more common one than the works that were turned into movies like Carrie, Cujo, Shining, e.t.c.
