      I am the author of this novel, so I like it. It is a difficult topic (child abuse), but something I felt passionate about. No one should live in fear and oppression.

      A Prisoner Within by J.M. NorthupI have read many books that look into the human condition. I found that A Prisoner Within, shows a neglected part of the human condition. I know of only one other book that looks at the controversy of Psychological disorders, and like I Never Promised You a Rose Garden, this book has a difficult topic. Julie Northup looks at our perceptions of the stories of young children. Tiffany’s mother is in absolute control of her daughter’s life. Following the death of [...]

      Hidden Family Dysfunction - Powerful StoryThe story line of A Prisoner Within, by J. M. Northup, is by far the best book I’ve read on the lives of the modern-day dysfunctional family. The story is so true to life, I found myself experiencing emotions I haven’t felt for a long, long time. I have known of some dysfunctional families and the one Northup has created epitomizes these people and types of habits and secrets.The mother figure in the story is definitely one character I detested from [...]

      DismissedHave you ever been shopping or at a restaurant and saw a parent hitting/ screaming at their toddler? Have you ever stepped in and said anything? Or did you just shake your head and walk away? Maybe you wanted to say something but thought it's none of your business or maybe you feared it would make things worse for the child.What if the child were older, say fifteen or seventeen? Would you say something then? Or would you just figure that the child is a teen and is acting out as teens te [...]

      What a dark, twisted tale. And I loved it. From the first opening pages, you’re thrown into the violent, abusive relationship between Tiffany and her mother. The first half of the book bounces between past and present, as J.M. Northup shows how the Mother has trained Tiffany to be the perfect slave to her aggressive needs for control and domination. With her smart intellect and knowledge of the human mind, he Mother spins tales and lies to turn everyone against Tiffany, even the people in auth [...]

      A sad, haunting tale of abuseThough this story is a reminder of the abuse children face from domineering parents every day, it is written very tastefully. Written from the perspective of young girl whose mother has resented her existence as long as she can remember and treats her more like a servant than a daughter. There is certainly physical proof of said abuse, yet every visit to the ER ends the same way. Patient once again comes to the emergency room exhibiting symptoms of self-abuse. No mat [...]

      WOW! This is a fantastic book of how cruel a mother can be and not all mother's are what they seem to appear when impressing the good neighbors. This is a pretty dark book but I'm just impressed. I felt their emotions in this one. Sometimes you get the worse mother possible and still have to live. I'm so glad I picked this up on KU. It really surprised me. Bravo J.M. Northup for creating the worse mother that I have ever read possible.This poor child went through hell and not a dang person belie [...]

      This is really a good story, that tells a heart wrenching tale. Readers meet Tiffany as a teenager. She has an abusive mother and a step father who allows the abuse to happen. This could easily be a biography for hundreds of people. he author tackles a hard subject and adds a psychological view of a person who is abused. Following Tiffany's story is fascinating and the author does a great job with the feel of this story and with the character of Tiffany. Well done!

      Unbelievable. Couldn't put this one down.My emotions were haywire while reading. Up and down with every turn of events. Even though fiction, the reality, that it is horrible to think someone could possibly live a life such as this young woman, butevable nonetheless.

    11. Rebecca McCarver on said:

      Very InvolvingThis book brought out so many feelings in me. From pure hatred of Tiffany's mother to shocking disbelief that no one could see the truth.

    12. Doris Marcantel on said:

      Inspiring!It's often amazed me how some children that are horribly abused, end up being such good souls in the end. I greatly enjoyed this book!

    13. Ashley Benter on said:

      Overall, I liked the book. It was a good premise for the story but it was hard to tell how much time difference there was with the flashbacks and at first I didn't even realize that she was going back and forth between two different time periods to lead up the less than stellar conclusion. There were quite a few grammar and spelling mistakes, sentences that just didn't make sense, but I talked myself past them. If you like stories about overcoming abuse and what goes on in the mind of those who [...]

Her mother hides the monster with a believable mask, free to dig ever deeper scars in her daughter’s psyche.Finally at a crossroads, what path will Tiffany choose?

      Sad StoryIt was just a really sad story.I would think that all the times she was in the hospital,the nurses and doctors would have questioned the abuse.And what about her teacher's?
