A poignant tale of one woman’s triumph after her sacrifice through an unhappy marriage awaits readers as author Linda O' Dochartaigh pens a gripping, heartrending work of fiction. This book tells the story of the woman named Peregrine.
She was young and inexperienced and had never had a relationship. A shy and studious girl, she grew up in a fantasy world of old black-and-white movies where charming, witty men courted sophisticated women. She spent her childhood in the black-and-white movie world of pretend, unfortunately making her totally unprepared for the Technicolor movie world of real life.
She met her husband at a small café where she worked. He was charming, handsome, and her parents loved him; he seemed so sincere. They dated for about six months, and when he proposed, she was so smitten, she needed no time to think it over; she happily accepted. They married, and life was the best she’d ever known—or so she thought. After a few years, he began to snap at her – everything she did or did not do was wrong. Then he began to hit her. He turned into a monster—not the man she married, not the man she loved.
After years of sacrifice, Peregrine mustered the courage to fight back. She got even and got away. Her ability to “morph” into an old black-and-white movie actress at her will hid her from the monster and made her triumphant. Readers will find a little bit of surprise as the book comes to a close.
Although painful at the beginning, Peregrine is an eye-opener that sends a message of inspiration to readers: that after the darkest storm comes the clearest sky. Through this book, the author also aims to bring awareness and comfort to those who had suffered and are still suffering the same fate.
