Wavering Convictions by Erin Dutton






⭐⭐☆



Talk about creating a complicated context for a relationship! Forty-something Maggie Davis is attacked and robbed at gunpoint. Her attacker is arrested and she has to go to court. She runs into one Ally Becker (39) in the canteen of the court and there is insta-attraction between the two. Maggie is completely shaken by the attack and she finds herself reaching out to Ally to talk. During their conversation, Ally realises that Maggie was attacked by her brother, but keeps this information to herself. During the next visit to the court, Maggie realises just who Ally is and is quite devastated. Yet, somehow, the two connect again and start developing a relationship.

Throughout the book we were as much in our head as in the story. What would we do in place of Maggie? In place of Ally? How would we want Ally to behave if we were Maggie? What would we expect from Ally if we were Maggie? If we were Ally with a family like the one described and a developing relationship with Maggie, what choices would we make?

This book is a lot about the impact of a crime on a victim. An angle which we felt was left unaddressed. It was also difficult to understand and grasp the kind of attraction that would lead Maggie to Ally despite their relationship with the attacker.

One thing certain: this is an interesting read.
