Elody knows no tenderness, trapped in a loveless, abusive relationship that haunts her every step. There is no way out, no way to free herself. Her family, her friends - she's locked them all out and caged herself in, determined to show no weakness. Never to allow him into any other aspects of her once happy life. But the neighbors are getting suspicious, her parents are starting to ask questions, her friends are beginning to doubt her intentions, and the guy from the coffee shop she works at keeps showing up to see her. Tied in a net of danger, Elody fights her desire to run and her fear of the monster keeping her wounded. This ugly secret of hers has been kept well under wraps for two years, but all ugly secrets come out eventually, and when it does, Elody has a new set of fears to fight.

Her life is truly Macabre.
