I learned early in life how to survive. A skill that became vital in my position.
I was given no power, yet I was expected to hold my own with the most powerful man in the country.
MOTHER OF THE NATION
My people were my children. I stood between him and them.
I am not the person they say I am.
I am not my husband.
I am innocent.
Do you believe me?
The Dictators Wife is a stunning and unputdownable debut novel from author Freya Berry. It’s a read that pulls you in and before you know it you’ve reached the last page and you’ve read the entire thing in one sitting.
It’s a book that oozes charm, lures you in plays with your mind and then when you think you’ve got a read on Marija, you realise you really haven’t. Marija and Laura’s relationship is full of many layers and is intriguing to read.
