Review of Thorns of an Innocent Soul by Barbara Watkins

Title - Thorns of an Innocent Soul
Author - Barbara Watkins
Stars - 5
Reviewer - Wende Sheets

Jennifer Scott and her 3 brothers grew up a world of abuse. Not from their father but from their mother, whom they could never call mom. They referred to her as Ella. This was Ella's choice. Ella was a cold, controlling, manipulative, cruel, heartless, bitter, sadistic human being, a true essence of evil. Ella always told her children they were responsible for what they did and what happened in their lives.

Jennifer and her brothers grew up learning to pretend they had the perfect family, they never spoke of the pain they experienced while growing up. Once Jennifer graduated she accepted a contract with a an upscale magazine with lots of traveling. Without looking back her bags were packed, leaving her boyfriend Chris behind Jennifer started a new life. Jennifer mother who was miles away was still sabotaging Jen's life. Letters Chris wrote to her was stuffed in boxes and Ella manipulated Jen into marrying someone that she had no love for. Ella looked at marriage as just wealth and advantages that over powered the bad.

The day Jen's father dies, things will forever change with Jen. Her new goal is to due everything in her power to make Ella's life miserable. She is convinced that Ella has ruined all her chances for happiness. As Ella never took teh blame or responsibility, neither did Jen in her own pain. The bad choices she made in own life she could never take  responsibility for. Jen is plaques with disturbing dreams and visions. When the hatred has grown so bad, Jen takes things in her own hands. . . . . .

What a powerful read ! I was hooked from the first sentence. This is a mother and daughter that never took responsibility for their own actions, they always blamed someone else. It really makes you stop and think about choices you make. Very deep story, that kept me wanting to turn the page and left me wanting for more.
