The story is told from the point of view of both Gemma and her captor, and Tilly is equally proficient at conjuring up a revolting and consummate villain. Tilly has talent, but it remains to be seen whether she will find an audience willing to take on this unsettling subject. A haunting tale of abuse that may leave readers queasy.

She explained: "Logan was my first baby and my husband, Max, and I were super excited about our 20 week scan. Excitement turned to absolute fear in the space of a few seconds. Closely monitored throughout her pregnancy, Gemma was then given the terrible news that her baby boy would need open heart surgery within six months of him being born. Logan was born in September but by Christmas he was failing to thrive and when he was just five-months-old he underwent open heart surgery.
It was awful. Finally, when Logan was three, a community paediatrician noticed he was showing signs of a chromosomal issue. No parent wants to be told their child has a condition that will affect their development.
He also has kidney issues, gastro problems as well as being hyper mobile and suffers from weak muscle tone. It was also discovered Logan had a hypo plastic odontoid peg affecting the bone that connects the head to the body and can cause serious cervical spinal injury when he is in an unconscious state.
