Carbon Under Pressure by Meg Heart

Carbon Under Pressure

Award-Winning Book

A mother wakes to a nightmare and is thrust into a race to save three lives.

Rose thought she had it all, then she discovered her husband’s hidden life. The revelation crushed Rose, and the breakup shattered her family. Battling through heartbreak and betrayal, she thought the worst was behind her, but nothing could prepare Rose for what came next.


In this raw and confronting story, we follow three years in Rose’s life. With a rare honesty, she reveals the painful emotions of a mother watching helplessly as her daughter battles a tormenting secret. It will push her to the edge, but just as the nightmare promises to end, Rose’s family is haunted by a new and more ominous threat. Will the intense pressure tear her apart, or can she find the strength to face her demons and save the ones she loves?

Carbon Under Pressure is based on real events. Rose’s story is shocking, riveting and unforgettable, and what happened to her could happen to anyone.


Carbon Under Pressure is the first book brought to life by Meg Heart for an author who would otherwise remain silent.

‘Rose’ cannot speak out under her real name due to laws that forbid the public disclosure of certain information in her story. She faced three choices: stay silent; tell a lesser story; or share the raw and real events from her life in a new way.

We are proud to bring ‘Rose’s’ story to life.


This book deserves commendations of the highest order!
