Scout knew when things were not right in the house. She sensed it, felt the tension. She also knew she was Rebecca's only emotional support at times and she took this job seriously. She knew beacuse she had spent many sleepless hours with Rebecca comforting her, patiently listening to her tears and sensing Rebecca's pain. Scout also knew how Mitch could be. Neither one of them could survive if it were not for eachother. They relied on each other. Ff ony one of them could voice it to someone. But [...]

A powerful, well written drama that will draw you in from the very first page. You will enter Rebecca's world and weep with her as you feel the anguish and pain of her situation. It was very hard to put down. This is a story that will stay with you long after you finish reading. I will definitely be looking for more from this author.
I won this book in a giveaway. Good read. I finished it in one sitting. I had to know how it ended. Congrats to this author for addressing this issue of domestic abuse .This book will stay with me for a long time
Although this book is fiction, it was clearly written by someone who intimately understands domestic abuse. This book was on point in so many ways. As a survivor of domestic abuse, I felt myself feeling a little too much as I read Rebecca's account of abuse. Although her story was different from mine in so many ways, there was a lot that I could relate to. This is a great fictional read for those who want to truly know what domestic violence can look like, how it destroys a victim, and how it ca [...]
This book should be required reading for all young women. If you have seen any tendencies like Mitch in your partner, this book will help you see where it leads. Rebecca is in a cycle of hope - the next big milestone will be when Mitch starts acting like he did back at the beginning - until he doesn’t. “Mitch seems to know when I am at my breaking point,” Rebecca thinks to herself, “He becomes the man I thought I’d married and pulls me back to him.”.It breaks my heart to think of fri [...]
More StarsI wish there was a way I could give more than 5 stars.This was an amazing book.This author took on a topic many people don't want to talk about,but it's time.We have people that are dying,being beaten and made to feel as if life is overMany will be no more,some will rise above,but too lose anyone to domestic violence is just sad.But Katelin is making a difference by writing this book.As she so clearly stated in this book,No More Silence, Stop The Violence.
I was amazon by how much I was attached to this book. Considering it has nothing, absolutely nothing to do with my own life, I still enjoyed reading it. The story was intriguing and I craved to know what is awaiting on me in the next chapter. The end was NOTHING that I expected BUT I think it is a really good choice for this kind of book ending. At first it gave me mixed emotions I did not know what to think, BUT you have to consider the purpose of Drowning. It gives a good reality check and it [...]
"Drowning" is a very well written and important novel. Not having been in an abusive relationship before, I did not understand why women put up with being beaten and berated. But Drowning really presented a believable novel about a women with low self-esteem, married to an important doctor after all, who finds her marriage gradually falling apart. Her husband's anger and control gradually gets worse and she is in denial about it. And of course, who would suspect him of violence. I hope this book [...]
Katelin Maloney has written a riveting story. I was mesmerized by the main character's (Rebecca) dire situation. Katelin deftly brings the reader into Rebecca's life---physically, psychologically, and emotionally. Like her friend, Anna, I was right there, begging Rebecca to leave Mitch. Thankfully I have never been involved in an abusive relationship, but now understand the calculating way an abusive partner can dominate, and how the excuses and rationalizations by the victim prolong the situati [...]
Katelin Maloney’s debut novel, Drowning, is an outstanding example of what has become an all too common reality for women living with domestic violence. It provides a harsh and realistic window into the lives of victims without pity or the ‘why do they stay’ mentality. The dream sequences are superb, lending depth and insight to Rebecca’s struggle. This would make an excellent Book Club or Book-of-the-Month selection to open the lines of communication to anyone who may be experiencing an [...]
I won this book from giveaways. It is a great book about a horrible domestic violence situation I wish she would have just left but sometimes it's not that easy and sadly she paid for not leaving
