Marisa may have only known Jake a few months, but she has never felt this certain about anyone. When he asks her to move in with him and they start trying for a baby, she knows she has finally found the steadfast love and support she has been looking for all her life. But their relationship is tested when they take in a lodger, Kate, who has little regard for personal boundaries and seems to take an uncomfortable interest in Jake - as well as the baby they are hoping to have. Why is Kate so obsessed with the couple? And, more worryingly, why doesn't Jake share Marisa's concern? In her determination to find the answers, Marisa risks losing everything she holds dear.

Book:Rise, life lessons in speaking out, standing tall & leading the way:2019 Book
Author: Miller, Gina
Author: Day, Elizabeth
Year: 2019
Language: English
Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Canongate
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Previous edition: 2018 Originally published: 2018 Gina Miller came to prominence when she brought one of the most significant constitutional cases ever to be heard in the British Supreme Court. Gina successfully challenged the UK government's authority to trigger Article 50 - the formal notification to leave the European Union - without parliamentary approval. For standing up for what she believed was right, Miller became the target of not just racist and sexist verbal abuse, but physical threats to herself and her family. She was repeatedly asked: how could she keep going at the cost of so much pain and aggravation? To her the answer was obvious: she'd been doing it all her life.
