Hey everyone! I hope your weekend has got off to a fantastic start. Today I bring you the cover reveal for the book Isolation Junction by Jennifer Gilmour, who just so happens to be one of my favourite people. I am so excited to share this with you today as I cannot think of a person who deserves success more than Jennifer does.
Rose is the mother of two young children, and finds herself living a robotic life with an abusive and controlling husband. While she struggles to maintain a calm front for the sake of her children, inside Rose is dying and trapped in ‘Isolation Junction’.
She runs an online business from home, because Darren won’t let her work outside the house. Through this, she meets other mums and finds courage to attend networking events, while Darren is at work, to promote her business.
It’s at one of these events that Rose meets Tim, a sympathetic, dark-haired stranger who unwittingly becomes an important part of her survival.
After years of emotional abuse, of doubting her future and losing all self-confidence, Rose takes a stand. Finding herself distraught, alone and helpless, Rose wonders how she’ll ever escape with her sanity and her children. With 100 reasons to leave and 1,000 reasons she can’t, will she be able to do it?
Will Tim help her? Will Rose find peace and the happiness she deserves? Can Rose break free from this spiraling life she so desperately wants to change?
This new edition of Isolation Junction publishes on 22nd October, and Jennifer Gilmour would love to invite you to the online launch party on Facebook – https://www.facebook.com/events/699087493784429/
Born in the North East, I am a young, married mum with three children. I assist in running a family business from my home-base and I have a large readership of other young mums in business for my blog posts.
From an early age I have had a passion for writing and have been gathering ideas and plot lines from my teenage years. A passionate advocate for women in abusive relationships, I have amalgamated and fictionalised other survivors experiences alongside my own to write my first novel detailing the journey of a young woman from the despair of an emotionally abusive and unhappy marriage to develop the confidence to challenge and change her life and to love again. I hope that in reading my debut novel, I will raise awareness of this often hidden and unseen behaviour and empower women in abusive relationships to seek help for themselves and find the confidence to change their lives.

I read and reviewed this book back in early 2017 and have read it again since. This was my review.
Isolation Junction is a very quick read, the story is paced really well and despite its topic it doesn’t read too grimly. Each chapter goes between Rose in the present and Rose in the past and gives insight into her situation and background. There are points in the book which may be triggering for those who have suffered domestic violence, however, I did find the book very well written.
It is easy to feel for Rose, for what she has had to endure and live with. The decisions that she must make in order to break free are incrediby hard and I cannot imagine that any of us would like to find ourselves having t make the same ones. For Rose her children are her priority, in order to save them though she must first save herself.
The relationship with Tom proved to be something that would lift her beyond ways she never would have expected.
This book is a must read for everyone, whether you are going through a similar situation or not it will serve to help highlight the behaviour of domestic violence and abuse and help to recognise the side effects of one suffering from it.
Thanks for reading.
