She cleans for him, cooks, plows the land, tends to the various animals on the property and unfortunately for all of this - Fitz beats and rapes her.
Desperate to get away from Fitz, she hashes a plan to kill him and run away. This book is mostly about how she killed him and got away.
I found this book interesting to read - especially because it was written from the perspective of Jessie's dead child. However, there wasn't a lot in the book that made me think - and I like books that make me think! So if you are into an easy read - than go for it. Otherwise I'd skip it.
