shame horrifying true story of abuse
‘Shame’ is a true story, which covers thirty one years of my life. It is an account of the abuse and neglect I suffered at home, and at the hands of Neville husband - one of the most prolific abusers in the U.K.
I chose the title because I felt too ashamed to tell anyone what had happened to me, because I wasn’t physically or mentally strong enough to fight him off. I also felt shame towards the authorities, because they knew what he was doing to young boys, 43 years ago, but did nothing to intervene.
