    This book started out a bit slow, but gained momentum as I dug into it. There were a few times, that I caught myself holding my breath, & I thought the intensity was more so because I was able to see things from each person's perspective, instead of just an observance from a certain character alone. Well done, Stevie! I will definitely be looking for more from you!

    I received a free copy of this book for a return of an honest review. The author has done and amazing job of introducing various very interesting characters and captivating scenarios. It is a very interesting story of a young woman Beth who is help captive and her daughter is born while she is in captivity. The book kept me glued to the pages as the story moves on and you know that the child who is now eight years old has never been outside to experience life outside of that room. It is very captivating and very intriguing. The book is very well written and it moves in a very nice pace to keep the reader eager to learn what is going to happen when they turn the next page. I absolutely loved the book.

    A creepy, abduction story, even more when we know such crimes happened in real life. We experience the tragedy and see the events unfold through the eyes of different characters, from victims and perpetrators.
    Characters feel real and the scenery is vivid. A brave tale dealing with psychological ordeals in a gripping tale.

    A fascinating novel about lives affected by abduction
    This is an interesting story that describes the suffering of Beth—a young woman abducted while pregnant—and her eight-year-old daughter Amy—who was born in captivity and has never experienced the outside world. The well-developed characters, the vivid descriptions, and the nice handling of using multiple points of view were very intriguing.

    A House without Windows by Stevie Turner is the story of Dr. Beth Nichols who was held captive for ten years together with her daughter, Amy, who was born in captivity. Shortly after she fell pregnant with her fiancé Liam's child, Beth was kidnapped by an ex-patient, with little hope of escaping. Pregnant again with her stalker Edwin's child, she managed to get away when she was taken to the hospital to give birth. The story is told from different perspectives and is narrated in both first person and third person. The book starts with Amy’s perspective where we find out about the house (room) where the two are kept locked and their daily routine through an innocent child's eyes. In Beth’s story we find out more about the kidnapping and how she managed to escape. From Liam’s perspective we learn that he is torn apart between his new life with his partner and their toddler, Toby, and the hope of being reunited with the love of his life and their ten-year-old daughter of whom he knew nothing. Later on in the book, we get to read Edwin’s perspective as well as Joss’, all leading to one question: will Beth get a second chance to live her life surrounded by loved ones?

    I enjoyed reading A House without Windows from different perspectives as Turner captures perfectly the inner thoughts and feelings of the characters. Amy’s perspective is heart breaking as the captivity is the only reality that she knew at her age. The book keeps readers interested throughout and, as the perspectives change, you want to know more about each character and how the story will come together in the end. The book has all the ingredients of a good read: positive characters, a villain, suspense, authentic dialogues and a narrative style that keeps readers interested to the very end.

    "A House Without Windows" by Stevie Turner....

    What is this novel about?

    "Newly-pregnant Dr Beth Nichols had no idea she was being stalked by ex-patient Edwin Evans as she made her way home one evening after a late shift. After being anaesthetized she woke up in Edwin’s basement, held against her will, and eventually giving birth there without medical help.

    The story is written from different perspectives; from Beth’s 9 year old daughter Amy who is born in captivity, from Beth herself, now pregnant with Edwin’s baby, from her fiancée Liam, and 16 years later from her son Joss and his father Edwin.

    When Beth escapes, the Press get hold of the story and Beth and Amy have their photo in the newspaper. Liam (who has made another life for himself back in his homeland of Canada with his new partner Patty and their son Toby) is shocked to see the photo, thinking Beth had been murdered years before.

    Liam must make the difficult choice of either meeting up with Beth again and getting to know his daughter, or staying where he is in Toronto.

    The story then runs ahead 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 loved."

    What I got from the read....

    Wow, this was really some read that this author presented involving some many characters with such

    a story that in the end was well blended together giving the reader a well written read. It is my understanding that there was a real story taken from events that had happened in Lambeth London dealing with three women that had been held captive for thirty some years. This author in his novel "A House Without Windows" really did some research to give the readers a inside version of what happened to Dr. Beth Nichols, her daughter and son, Joss, her former boyfriend Liam and Edwin Evans. Be prepared for a read that is full of complexed emotions, physical and psychological issues as this author details a little of it all. "A House Without Windows" will be hard to put down once you start reading it because it will keep your attention from the start to the finish. I don't want to give any of this story away other than to say pick up this good read to see how this author brings this story line all out. Believe me, it will be some read. If you a in for a good drama, thriller, and mystery then I would recommend this novel to you.
