I was kindly sent this book by the author, Helene Andrea Leuschel in exchange for an honest review.
Manipulated lives is a book made up of 5 novellas, which can be read as stand alone books. Each story has the same theme running through them, there is a manipulator and a person being manipulated!
Whilst you’re reading the stories you are transported into the scene the author is describing, you feel the anticipation building and then when the realisation of what’s happened hits you you’re overcome with emotion. After reading it, you will be on the look out for people with manipulator characteristics in your own lives.
I would encourage everyone to read these stories as they’re beautifully written and the writing style keeps you guessing right until the very end. After reading the book it really encourages you to reflect upon your own life and question the choices that you have made which have guided you to where you are today.
I look forward to reading more by this author.
