nothing new here

Wish I'd known this book was over 30 years ago. I was truly not surprised by anything, except the fact that her husband clubbed a dog to death for barking. Just lost any respect for a man who is questionable in his treatment of his wife, people, and now animals. Uggghhh, disgusted.
