Read by Lili Taylor
Fran Benedetto tells a spellbinding story: how at 19 she fell in love with Bobby Benedetto; how their passionate marriage became a nightmare; why she stayed and then what happened on the night she finally decided to run away with her son and start a new life under a new name. Living in fear, yet with increasing confidence, freedom and hope, Fran unravels the complex threads of family, identity and desire that shape a woman's life. As Fran begins to heal from the pain of the past, she almost believes she has escaped it - that Bobby will not find her, and provoke again the combustion between them of attraction and destruction, lust and love.
'Black and Blue' is a beautifully written, heart-stopping story about the inexplicable violence that can erupt between people who are passionately connected in ways they don't understand.
