Product Description

Product Description

Sara Davies’ story is one of abuse, neglect, betrayal and, ultimately, survival. When she was just 5 years old, her violent father began to sexually abuse her. She suffered in silence for many years, as her father took advantage of her innocence and her mother turned a blind eye to the horrors that were taking place in her own home. It was only when Sara found the courage to tell her mother what had happened that the truth about the trauma and abuse she had suffered came out. In an attempt to rebuild her life, as a teenager, Sara became a model but even this choice was to lead to more misery when she discovered that the agency had been drugging and abusing her. Despite the horrors that Sara has endured, she has survived and, partly by telling her story, has overcome the past to re-build her life.

2.0 out of 5 stars heavy going 20 Aug 2013
By Ann
the author is still very much a victim in her writing. there is too much repetition which makes reading rather laborious and when you feel she is about to break away from the chains, back we go. she seems unable to walk forward, always going backwards. i wouldnt recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly told 8 May 2013
By Naz
This is one hell of a read, would recommend it over and over again. Her father is a monster that should be behind bars for the rest of his life, her mother is no better. I felt for this author but she shows that she is a strong woman and great mother. Well done Sara! xxx

Such an eye opener, wanted to reach out to the five year old girl and give her a childhood of happy memories. So happy she turned her life around and loves each of her precious children no matter how bad her downs in life got.
