In Jeanette Cooper's "Stripped of Dignity," meek and submissive Juliette Pardeau drags you down with her in a shocking story of degradation, spousal abuse and murder. This page-turner grabs your heart even as it has you looking over your shoulder, fearful that Juliette's despicable husband Russell Pardeau might turn on you.***** Dear Juliette--the picture of a loving and compliant wife--suddenly finds herself locked out of her own home, on the street and penniless. What Juliette is forced to do to survive strips her personal dignity and step-by-step imbues her character with an obsessive determination to be independent and to regain self-dignity and respect.***** In short, page-turning chapters, Author Jeanette Cooper skillfully leads us through panicked rejection, romantic encounters and unspeakable acts of vile criminality before she ultimately restores our view of a decent and respectful society.***** The dynamic action of Stripped of Dignity drove me to read faster and faster as I became totally immersed in its fascinating storyline. This is one of those rare novels that keeps you flipping pages even as you admit you hope the story never ends***** Jeanette Cooper is a great storyteller. Could this be her best novel? "Stripped of Dignity" is absolutely spellbinding!
