Lydia Castle is fifteen, naïve and living in Yorkshire, England. 

Her world is turned upside down in one day.  Too scared to tell her parents, knowing her father will look for vengeance. 

Lydia’s life is in danger, struggling to survive. 

Lydia Castle is thirty and living as a single parent in Yorkshire, England. Working hard, she is an independent woman. 

Quietly, there is a car parked two houses away from hers – every night, lying in wait, in the darkness. It is the same car that follows her two cars back everywhere she goes...

Someone is stalking her.

Her lifeHer family. Her freedom. Her liberty. Stalking liberty! 
What people are saying about A Broken Ring:

"An engaging and riveting journey that impacts both the mind and heart. The reader is immediately captivated from the opening lines and is launched on a journey of discovery and empowerment. I guarantee you will be overcome by your need to read what happens next. This is a powerful story of discovery and hope for anyone who has been impacted (directly or indirectly) by abuse." 

Dennis E. Golden CEO, IM-SAFE® Keeping Women And Those They Love Safe

"This is a good book for graphically outlining the violence for community readers and advocates; showing the knowledge of freedom from domestic abuse as an active choice." 

Audry Hardy, Grove City Purple Purse Advocacy Gathering, Ohio

~ Are you safe?...

"The story line was more complex with the added element of suspense."
For survivors and anyone who helps them -- essential powerful reading, recovery and how perpetrators fight to get away with it. Women in abusive relationships tell themselves these things every day In this groundbreaking book. Domestic abuse is in the papers every day. Maybe this book will give women the courage to leave their abusers and help us to better understand this growing problem. 

What an amazing story about a damaged, abuse and waiting to exhale."

Reviews for Stalking Liberty

"Claire Cappetta is an awesome writer, I couldn't put the book down and I felt her pain, crying at the end. Can not wait for the next book, as want to see what happens next in Lydia's life!" Chrisie Thompson

"Author Claire Cappetta has delivered to you a powerful tale which is indeed felt from the first page out to the ending while keeping your heart pounding. Her first hand knowledge of each fear, compassion and hair raising experience has not tainted her view on life but given her strength to empower you.

Are you a victim or survivor? This is a must read for either so that if you are that victim, you will find the courage Claire has to move forward with your life and become a survivor. No one wants to be a victim but sometimes it feels safer than to survive. How do I know, I too am a Survivor.

You will experience the life and choices this author made through her words while being entertained yet while you gasp at her trials of horror. If you are not either of these -survivor or victim, the sheer curiosity of what emotions are behind such a hideous experience will captivate your attention to the end.

Oh, don't think for one moment this book is one you can guess what lies beyond each page-this author keeps you guessing-THE END, well, I leave this surprise for you but hang on as it is certainly not what you expect!

Once you understand these emotions, maybe you too can reach out and help someone else as Claire has done with her book "Stalking Liberty"

Rosemary "Mamie" Adkins, Reflections of Mamie, A Story of Survival
"I just finished "Stalking." I loved it, but was furious at the ending, and then I realized; it's a's not over for Lydia! 

Can't wait to read Part Three. I wanted to scream at Lydia, telling her she has the power to make everything okay. Just be brave and listen to your own voice. 

I think you should get a literary agent, because you are that good. 

You are gifted, Claire, you should write, write, write and publish, publish, publish! 

I just loved the book and the heroine, Lydia!"
