"Treacherous Love: A Short Story of Misdirected Passion" by Karen Black



DESCRIPTION AS ON AMAZON:

Rochelle adores Ethan, but volatile confrontations threaten to destroy their marriage. When a tragic accident hospitalizes their son, the resulting events force Rochelle to recognize the damage that her rage has caused. Determined not to lose Ethan, Rochelle vows to change. Ethan agrees to give their relationship another chance. Despite it all, he loves his wife. But the road to recovery isn't an easy one, and sometimes love isn't enough.




A reverse on the typical story of domestic violence, 'Treacherous Love' features a man trying to hold his family together while suffering physical abuse from his spouse. Ethan tolerated far more than I thought he should. I felt sorry for him up until his son was injured. Instead of being the end of their marriage, Rochelle got the upper hand and further manipulated Ethan. The ending surprised, and it didn't say what consequences Rochelle faced but I don't think she'd have the upper hand anymore. I enjoyed the story.
