An account of extreme child abuse from age 12 including rape, burning, knifing and murder attempts continuing for twenty years, shocking police and medical professionals.
This book is about survival, and having the strength and belief to deal with trauma, and move on to be able to concentrate on life, and appreciate the good things that can happen if you look for them. People say it's a miracle I survived, yet I did and I hope that this book will prove to be beneficial to all those who have been touched by trauma, or know of someone who has. If people can have the courage to read and understand it will help many others.
“A courageous and moving story written by a courageous woman, in which she describes vividly her experiences of some of the best and the worst of human behaviour. It should provide help and insight to many people who are enduring mental suffering. It is a powerful lesson for those who live with, care and provide support for people with mental disturbance and those who administer health-care systems”
Prof. Frederick Toates, co-author of Obsessive Compulsive Behaviour
"Nothing splendid has been achieved except by those who dared to believe that something inside them was superior to circumstances... The book, like its author is splendid."
