Verity is an autobiography about a writer. It’s set in an isolated village in the late 1800s. Lowen Ashleigh is about to be evicted when she witnesses a tragic accident. She then sees a stranger, who helped her clean up. Her obsession with Chastin and dream of killing him are explored in this book. The story is told from the point of view of two very different characters.
Verity Lowen’s autobiography is a very dark read. While she begins by telling the story of how she met her husband, Jeremy Lowen, things quickly get much worse. Her miscarriage and subsequent pregnancy make things even worse. Verity feels that her unborn child took Jeremy from her. She even purposely miscarried the twins, but never feels maternal towards them.
After Verity’s murder, her killers have moved on to a new life. Jeremy and Lowen are happily married and are about to have a child. They make their last trip to Vermont, where they find a letter addressed to Jeremy. Lowen begins reading it, frightened.
“Verity” is a short book with a very compelling plot. It deals with many mature themes, including child abuse, graphic violence, drug use, and explicit sexual content. It is not suitable for children, although mature readers will enjoy it. But the story is incredibly intriguing and well-written.
Verity is very weird. She writes the opposite of her true feelings and experiences, and that’s part of the point. She’s attempting to write from the villain’s perspective. She even writes a messed-up confession, which makes her even more bizarre. She repeatedly attempts to murder her children, and the book is laced with strange details.
Verity’s autobiography contains many dark secrets and thoughts. Lowen suspects that she may have had a part in the death of her daughters. She keeps her confessions from Lowen, because she doesn’t want to upset the grieving Jeremy. Lowen’s secret is a huge hindrance to Jeremy and Verity’s relationship.
Her obsession with Chastin
Verity is obsessed with Chastin, a boy she met at her first job. She’s also in love with him and hates Harper. She dreams of killing Chastin when she was a child, and then she tries to choke Harper. She’s unsuccessful, but the two stay close until she’s eight.
In a journal that Verity wrote about Harper’s death, she explains that she was “in an antagonistic journaling mood” after Harper’s death. When Jeremy read the journal, he realized that Verity was mentally ill. He could confirm many of the disturbing conversations that Verity had written.
Jeremy is a lawyer who bought a house when the girls were young. He wants to make a living and plans to go back to work. He also grew up on a farm in New York State. Jeremy also talks about Verity’s parents. Jeremy says that Verity snubbed her parents because they are “insanely religious.” Verity’s parents acted like they were joining a satanic cult.
Jeremy did not put Verity into a facility when he found out she was alive. He also didn’t hand over the manuscript to the police. In addition, he didn’t put Verity into a coma and divorce her. The letter had many flaws. The fact that Verity was writing the letter for Jeremy and Lowen shows that she wanted a baby so badly that she would lie about it. Jeremy’s actions make it even more implausible.
Her dream of killing Chastin
Verity’s dream of killing Chasto is a reminder of a time when the twins were only six months old. She is able to see Harper and Chastin together and thinks back to that time. In her dream, she is trying to kill Chastin by strangling her. Later, she tries to kill Harper again, but she is unsuccessful. This dream makes Verity question if Harper is the one who killed Chastin.
Verity had a dream that she killed Chastin, but was stopped by Harper and Jeremy. In this dream, she tries to kill Harper by making her eat her own vomit. However, Jeremy intervenes and saves Verity and Crew. Meanwhile, Lowen thinks of telling Jeremy about Verity’s dream, but isn’t sure about it.
Lowen is worried about Verity’s dream, but he does not want to hurt her. Jeremy, Verity’s father, is convinced that she will do it. Jeremy has his suspicions and tells Lowen to leave. Lowen, however, continues to monitor Verity for almost two hours. During that time, he tries to warn Jeremy. He then goes upstairs and yells at her to wake up.
Verity’s dream of killing Chastine was motivated by her obsession with her body. She was inspired by her mother’s laziness and wanted to kill the child to save her “perfect” body and give Jeremy something more he would love. She tried various methods, from taking sleeping pills to drinking wine, but the twins survived both attempts.
Her attempt to kill Harper
The incident that sparks Verity’s attempt to kill Harper comes about because her mother told her that Harper had a dream about killing Chastin. Verity always favored Chastin and felt protective of her. When Chastin was an infant, Verity tended to favor him over Harper, and she was upset when Jermey told her that Harper didn’t love her as much as she did.
After Harper’s death, Verity wrote about it in her journal. She was in her “antagonistic journaling mindset” at the time, and didn’t expect Jeremy to read it. In addition, Verity never thought that Jeremy would come across Harper’s journal.
Jeremy is furious, and he orders Lowen to leave. Verity’s manuscript ends with Jeremy questioning Verity’s role in Harper’s death. Verity then admits to locking Lowen in her room, staring at her, and plotting to kill her. Lowen then destroys the letter that Verity wrote to Jeremy and vows to keep it secret until she dies.
Jeremy and Verity’s marriage is strained, and Jeremy wants to keep things as normal as possible. Jeremy is a former farmer and plans to return to his old job soon. Jeremy also talks about Verity’s parents. Jeremy grew up on an alpaca farm, and Jeremy says Verity cut out her parents because they are too religious. She behaved like she was joining a satanic cult.
Her obsession with Jeremy
Verity’s obsession with Jeremy is based on several things. She was obsessed with their relationship, especially the sex. She also had a hatred for Harper. She wrote the manuscript in such detail that Jeremy thought she was psychotic. The manuscript also contains several conversations that Jeremy could verify. Then, he tried to kill her. After a couple of attempts, she finally managed to survive.
When she first met Jeremy, Verity was wearing a sexy red dress. She had recently moved in with him. She was totally in love with him. The writing reminded me of the movie Obsession. However, after she got to know Jeremy, her relationship with him quickly went sour.
Jeremy and Verity’s marriage broke up due to Jeremy’s inability to care for his twin daughters. Both of them have a history of loss. He has also suffered two separate tragedies. While he is trying to rebuild his life, Jeremy is obsessed with Verity.
The book is a dark and twisted tale. While it starts out with the story of Jeremy Lowen and Verity’s obsession with Jeremy, it quickly becomes more intense. Verity’s pregnancy only makes matters worse, as she thinks that her unborn child has stolen Jeremy from her. She even makes herself pregnant intentionally and eats pieces of a letter with Jeremy’s name on it.
Her obsession with Harper
Verity Crew, the narrator of the first book in the series, is obsessed with Harper, a girl she met at a party. Harper is quoted in the manuscript as not being able to swim. Verity does not notice, thinking that Harper would be swimming behind them. But Jeremy does not believe her.
Harper had to endure many hardships while growing up, and her parents’ strict religious beliefs had an impact on her development. The fact that her mother, Chastin, suffered from anaphylaxis and passed away during her sleep made Verity blame Harper for Chastin’s death, even though she had no control over the circumstances surrounding the incident.
Verity’s obsession with Harper stems from her mother’s intubation dream. Her obsession with Harper reflects her protectiveness over Chastin. As the two children grew older, Verity’s obsession grew and she began to favor Chastin over Harper. This obsession eventually led Jermey to be angry with Verity because he thought Harper did not deserve as much affection as the twins.
The book begins with Jeremy visiting Lowen in Vermont. Verity’s obsession with Harper intensifies after she reads Harper’s autobiography. When Lowen confronts her, she yells at her for being a bad mother. Verity then wets her pants, and Jeremy steals back into Lowen’s room. After reading the manuscript, Verity begins to beg Jeremy to explain everything to him, but Jeremy refuses. She then dies.
