This book is a horrifyingly true story of Francine Hughes and the living hell she went through during and after her marriage to Mickey Hughes who was a sadistic wife beater. The outcome of the trial will make you want to jump up and cheer -- it's an example of good overcoming evil!

This is the one that had Farrah Faucett in the movie! Based on a true story.

The true story of Francine Hughes, whom after years of living in an abusive marraige, sets fire to a gasoline soaked bed where her husband was sleeping. This was made into a movie starring Farrah Fawcett.

A true story of an abused wife and how the system failed her. Thank God the laws are better now than they were then.

I read this book many years ago, long before the movie was made. It's a disturbing, well written account of one woman's solution to a horribly abusive husband. She saw no other way out other than to kill him before he killed her. Definitely a story that will stay with you.

Very exciting. For anyone who may be experiencing or know someone who is experiencing physical or emotional abuse by a spouse. Just as interesting for someone is may not be. True story of a lady from Dansville, MI
