Bette could never do anything right in her father's eyes. Her father, Jake West, wanted a son. Jake never missed an opportunity to tell her she was good for nothing. Bette had very low self-esteem and started hating women. Jake was abused when he was a child by his older brother. It was the beginning of domestic violence that could be handed down. Bette met Mark Omen, and they fell in love. They got married soon after. But Bette could not stand her daughter, Jennifer, since birth. Mark had been in a relationship with Darlene before his marriage to Bette. When Darlene moved into town, Bette was on high alert. She was jealous of this previous relationship. Bette rushed out of the house after a phone call from Darlene. The Omen household was turned upside down in Juggernaut by Ruth Forrest Glenn.
Juggernaut by Ruth Forrest Glenn is complex. The story was fast-paced, and I enjoyed the twists and turns. There was never a dull moment. The story is packed with intrigue and suspense and full of action. I was compelled to keep reading to see where the story was going. The characters were well-developed and authentic. Everyone had a background story, and I knew where they came from. My favorite character was Jennifer. She grew up with a mother who hated her. However, she did not allow her mother’s behavior to change who she was. She stopped the domestic violence in her generation and raised her children in a loving home. The story is excellently written. It captured my interest and was a fascinating read.
