A House Without Windows - Kindle ebook by Stevie Turner

'A House Without Windows' is a must for fans of suspense/romance.  One reviewer on Barnes & Noble has called it 'The best book ever!'


Dr Beth Nichols is happily engaged to fellow doctor Liam Darrah, and has just discovered she is pregnant.  She has no idea she is being stalked by ex-patient Edwin Evans as she makes her way home one evening after a late shift at the hospital.  After being anaesthetised she wakes up in Edwin’s basement, held against her will.

The tale is told from different perspectives; from Beth’s 9 year old daughter Amy who is born in captivity,  from Beth herself, who 10 years later is pregnant with Edwin’s child, Beth’s fiancée Liam, from Edwin, and lastly after 16 years from Joss, Beth and Edwin’s son.

Beth finds a way to escape.  The Press get hold of the story and Beth and Amy have their photo in the newspaper.  The photo is seen by Liam, who has made another life for himself back in his homeland of Canada with his new partner Patty and their son Toby, thinking that his former fiancée had been murdered years before.  Liam must then make the difficult choice of either rekindling his relationship with Beth again and getting to know his daughter, or staying where he is in Toronto with Patty and his son.

The story then runs ahead 16 years to the point where Joss finds out who his real father is, now a patient in a secure mental hospital. Joss wants to get to know him, and makes a journey against his mother’s wishes to see his real father.  However, the much-anticipated meeting does not go quite to plan; Edwin still seems obsessed with Beth, and Joss feels unloved and unwanted.  He makes the mistake of telling Edwin where the family are living, and when Edwin is eventually released he comes looking to claim Beth back again, the only woman he has ever really loved.
