A story that illustrates the cycle and historic sequence of abuse and betrayal, this literary fiction examines one woman’s will to survive and the scars that define her and ultimately set her free.

Authentic, encompassing and believable, Web of Tyranny by the author Laurel-Rain Snow is a rich journey of the woman’s heart in all of its flawed glory. Stirring, this narrative tale is a furtive and complex story full of people, language, sadness, torture and, ultimately, inspiration. 

Set during the 60s and 70s, the incredibly and convincingly flawed Margaret Elaine Graham leaves a bad childhood to unwittingly marry a control freak. If hindsight is 20/20 it takes Meg a few turns on the stile to set things right.

Caught up in a near-compulsion of politics and war demonstrations, her growing addictions are tantamount and indistinguishable from her self-loathing and the mysterious veil of lies and betrayals, deeply buried, which, too, are the source of many of her current fears, dilemmas and growing addictions. Enticed by new possibilities and chafed by the strictures of marital ties, Meg bolts from the marriage with her toddler son in tow and reinvents herself as Lainey Graham.

In her journey, she meets and connects with other women who seek to create a niche for themselves in radical politics in the emerging women’s movement and professional careers. An unfortunate affiliation with a disturbed young woman, Gretchen Collier, adds another dimension of tyranny to Lainey’s laden life, but in a leap of faith, she turns the ill-fated encounter into an opportunity to free herself from yet another negative relationship.

The women who support her redefine themselves through numerous processes available to them. As they move toward a deeper understanding of their needs and desires, they gradually evolve into the full flower of their humanity.
