Amazon Editorial Review

Told in the third person, this is the story of how a young girl survived growing up in a volatile household in the 1920s and 1930s. How school and later university became her escape route from a family filled with secrets and violence. It is also a story of how, as a mature woman and a mother herself, she came to face what had happened to her as a child. How she had to bring long-buried memories into the light in order to move on.
