HELL HATH NO FURY LIKE A SCORNED WOMAN…WITH A BLOWTORCH
Brought up by her strict, religious father, the child was no stranger to the hidden basement beneath the kitchen. The basement where she had been beaten and left chained in the frigid darkness to repent her sins on numerous occasions.
Now, with her father dead, Victoria is an attractive young woman. Psychologically damaged, she struggles to make her way in the world. All she wants out of life is a husband to give her a baby – a child who will love her unconditionally and to whom she can be the mother she never knew. But her deep emotional scars prevent her from having the family life she so desires. When she discovers that her husband is cheating on her, her fragile sanity finally snaps and the cobwebbed walls of the secret basement will echo with screams like it has never known before.
Inspired by WH Auden’s poem, ‘Victor’ – Daddy’s Girl contains scenes that some readers may find disturbing.
