It Wont Happen Again

MARTHA has been married to Thomas for twenty-nine years. He has been abusive since the death of his mother. Martha has always blamed herself and tried to keep the peace.

Martha’s only release is her diary to which she confides her deepest secrets, her conflicting feelings, her resentment of Thomas’s high standards and her sadness that her family is broken. Laura struggles with mixed feelings about her mother’s abuse and lack of strength. She is heartbroken that Martha continues to allow Thomas to stop them from seeing each other and even her only grandchild.
