Following the death of The Brotherhood’s charismatic but sinister leader, Dominic, Melissa and her husband Mark resolve to turn the Abbey into a refuge for victims of domestic abuse. But when Melissa’s long-lost sister, Jess, turns up at the Abbey, new complications arise.
The Abbey residents welcome the new arrival but find it hard to cope with the after-effects of her past. As Jess struggles to come to terms with what she’s been through, her sudden freedom brings unforeseen difficulties. The appearance of a stalker – who bears a striking resemblance to the man who kept her prisoner for nine years – leads to serious problems for Jess.
Meanwhile, Mark also finds that his past is coming back to haunt him. When a mother and daughter venture from the Abbey into the local town for a shopping trip, there are dreadful consequences.
A build-up of tension, a poorly baby and a well-planned trap lead Mel, Jess and their family into a terrifying situation.
Can Jess overcome the traumas of her past to rescue her sister?
The Refuge is incredible sequel to The Brotherhood.
Melissa is still at the Abbey, but now planning to change it to a refuge……her long lost sister arrives after escaping her captor (she’s been missing for 10 years). In a fragile mental state, she joins the Abbey and soon settles in, but Melissa has now own problems….but they are safe now, aren’t they?
Another stunning and compelling thriller from Jo Fenton, which finally comes to a utterly satisfying ending.i do think you will need to read The Brotherhood first, just to get the full atmosphere and background to Melissa’s story.
