    1. This book was different than some of the other Cathy Glass books I've read. It's a novel based on true events about a woman named Aisha who marries her dream man named Mark. The physical and mental abuse starts the first night they bring their newborn baby home from the hospital and continues for years. I was shocked when she attempted escape and the events that happened with that. This is a great book. Cathy Glass never fails to write amazing stories fiction or non fiction!


    2. I found this book really interesting, and am a big fan of Cathy Glass' work, as her experiences as a parent and foster carer allow for great insight into the lives of the little ones she looks after and their often highly troubled pasts. Run, Mummy, Run was slightly different in that it was loosely based on a true account, and so although the was a fascinating read, I found myself questioning a lot of the content throughout. For instance, when Aisha quickly escaped from the house and bundled the [...]


    3. I absolutely love Cathy Glass's books. The fact that this book is totally fiction and not like her other books is great. It shows how easy (and sad) it is to fall into a life of abuse. It becomes all you know and u truly do feel like u are to blame. Its a horrible thing to ever have to endure. Cathy did an awesome job at telling this story without giving to much (in depth) description of the abuse.


    4. When will th eworld be free from scumbag men that treat women like possessions, controlling and manipulating situations. Physical and emotional abuse is horrendous and more should be done to prevent it and put a stop to it!


    5. It bothers me that people here on seem to think that this is nonfiction! Did you even read the book?! It says NOVEL on the front, and explains that it is not real, but only based on a true story. Sorry but these things get to me sometimes! That being said, I was thoroughly delighted with the way Cathy wrote this story. It seemed so different than the way she writes her non-fiction memoirs. I really think she should branch out and do more fiction sometime, because it was a nice change of pace. I [...]


    6. I absolutely loved this book. Reading Aisha's story my heart went out to her. I was in an abusive relationship so I could real relate to get story. I never allowed things to get as bad as they did for aisha I could never understand why people stay, mine was more emotional abuse for a year then after the 1st punch I upped and left. I never understood why women stayed, reading aisha story makes you realise how people are manipulated into thinking it's their fault. I hated her husband and felt for [...]


    7. Cathy's writing style in this book was different to others I have read. Not written about foster children, this was a story about a mothers abuse and demonstrated how difficult it is for battered wives to break the abusive cycle. I did not find myself judging this woman but instead, Cathy wrote about the sliding of this poor womans intelligence, integrity and self esteem with such detail and accuracy of the timing of events, it is understandable how this can happen. I thoroughly enjoyed it and f [...]


    8. I really enjoyed this book, but it probably wasn't the book I should have been reading on Christmas lol. Cathy Glass did an amazing job of writing, I really get into the scene and can picture it so well. My mother was abused when I was a small girl so I really could relate and have vivid memories of the same stuff happening as Aisha in this book. God, I hated everything about Mark! Everything I could possibly hate about a guy and I felt like the story could have gone no better way. I was so happ [...]


    9. This is different from most of Cathy Glass' books. Usually, she writes about foster children which they have had, but this is about an abused woman who thinks she has married the perfect man, but after the marriage, he begins to dictate more and more to her and to isolate her. It doesn't take long before he starts physical abuse.The author made it easy to get inside the mind of a person who is being abused and understand why they find themselves powerless to fight back. I think that is the harde [...]


    10. This is a true story of Aisha who is a very busy person that all she does is work, she spots a ad in the personal page for people on there own to meet people. She soon met a Man called Mark.After a year of going out together there get married, and than there have a little girl,This book took a while to get into the story but once you did you where hooked and i was up till 1am to see what happen to Aisha and the children.Aisha has to cope with Mark temper and she blames herself for the temper and [...]


    11. Usually I like Cathy Glass, but I didn't particularly care for this book. This was a novel about a battered wife. I think the point was to show how easy it is for a woman to find herself trapped in an abusive relationship with no way out (that she can see).If this had been a work of non-fiction I think I would have been more interested. I like stories about real people overcoming real problems. But a fictional novel about spousal abuseI just couldn't see the point. The woman's life got as bad as [...]


    12. It took me a few nights reading to get into this book, but once I did I couldn't put the book down. I found the story of Aisha`s living hell at the hands of her brutal husband harrowing to read, but I found myself wanting to see if she escaped. I totally understood what she had to do. I found the book gave a very good account of a woman living in an abusive relationship, and that maybe we shouldn't be so trusting of someone's charms in the beginning. Another good read from Cathy Glass even if a [...]


    13. With ease and diplomacy Cathy tells the story of Aisha's life through love, loss & betrayal. A difficult subject of predatory grooming, emotional and physical abuse, yet perfectly told in a factual light, with a fast engrossing pace; you won't want to put this book down! A truly emotional and heartbreaking story approached with diplomacy and compassion as only Cathy knows how. I have read many of Cathy's previous books, but was a little unsure as this was not focused on her role as a foster [...]


    14. i choosed to read this book because of its cover. cute lil' girl.Based on true story of a horrible abusive Marriage. A very successful woman-Aisya, before she married her abused husband-Mark. Aisha is an İndian born England, very responsible, dutiful daughter, always tried to put her father high expectation as priority. When she married Mark. she brings her dutiful character becomes a dutiful wife. Never a woman in her family leaves their husband, so she stays longer than she needs. Have two ch [...]


    15. I didn't like this book nearly as much as I've liked every other book by Cathy Glass. It could be that it was fiction, or that it was not focused on children. It wasn't that the writing was bad, or even that the story was bad. I just didn't find it as interesting, and I never really got in to the story. The main character's father's words at the very end of the book was the highlight of the entire book to me. It was just an alright book, nothing amazing, but I would still say that it was worth r [...]


    16. I really like how this book approaches the subject of spousal abuse - instead of focusing on giving in depth descriptions of the horrific beatings themselves, Cathy Glass focuses on the emotional and mental horrors suffered by abuse victims. Aisha ends up finding an inner strength she has forgotten she posesses, and readers are allowed to follow her journey toward finding herself again. Very good book!


    17. This is my first time reading a book like this and quite honestly it made me cry. Not because of poor writing or a bad monologue, it was the pain that this poor woman and her children went through! So sad. Inspired by a true story, it was a past paced read. Definitley worth the time to sit down and read for the weekend.


    18. Heart breakingThis book is well written. A book like this either makes you feel very fortunate or makes you feel you are not alone. It is hard to know the there are so many women and families out there experiencing the same kind of life. Hopefully as more people tell their story more will have the courage to leave.


    19. I usually love the works of Cathy Glass, but, unfortunately, this one just didn't connect with me. Perhaps because it was only inspired by a true story, and not Cathy's own experience with a foster child, it made me feel distant from Aisha and her family. Well written, but made me disconnected from the story.


    20. I'm a child of abuse. I saw my mom get hurta lot. I tried not to cry everytime I read the book. I'm not sure how I should feel about the book - I mean, it's a good book but at the same time I feel exposed because I've witnessed a lot of this in my own life.


    21. I'm a fan of Cathy's books and have read nearly everything she has written but I was not particular keen on this book I didn't feel it was all that well written compared to her others, it took me forever to read I feel she should stick to he foster caring.


    22. Although the subject matter for this book was very sad, I found it hard to put down. I wondered how the main character could have stayed with such a nasty person for so long yet know there are many out there in the same position.A very straightforward read, which didn't take me long to finish.


    23. I have read most of Cathy Glass's books (loved them all) and I believe this is her first fiction. Hopefully her last as I was VERY bored througth most of it. Takes way to long to get to the heartwrenching stuff that people kept talking about.



    24. I have read a number of Cathy Glass books and found this one quite different. It was written very well and told the story of a woman and her children living with Domestic Violence.


    25. I guess that's how it is. You don't really know someone until you have married that person.Sad and heartbreaking, what Aisha had to go throughI hope she and her children are doing well.


    26. Such a frustrating read but still so courageous of her to share with the world. May her heart heal and she and her kids on day find the happiness they deserve!!


    27. This book was a stark reminder of what some men are capable of and the cruelty they can dish out to women behind closed doors.I loved it and it was very well written.



    28. Like all Cathy Glass's Books, this too is a beautiful book Sad, yes, but Beautiful!
