Product Description

Product Description

Born in 1975, Louise was living a happy, normal life as the much adored only child of two loving and hard-working parents. But then the tragic deaths of her father and grandfather within two years of each other turn her life upside down.

Having moved in with her mother's parents after the death of her father, Louise finds that her grandmother's increasing reliance on the local church for comfort after her husband's death draws a soon to be unwelcome guest to the family home: the verger, Mr. Jarvis. Whilst outwardly paying attention to her widowed grandmother, he also seems to be focussed on Louise herself, and abuses his position of trust, both at the church's Sunday school and in the family home, to force his unnatural obsessions on her.

Even after Louise's mother remarries and she can finally look forward to moving away from Mr. Jarvis, Louise must endure one more harrowing attack before he is finally caught out. But even then, with child protection teams still very much in their infancy in the early 1980s, Louise still lives with the consequences of her unstable childhood.


WARNING: This book is based upon a true story of child abuse, and as such contains passages that some readers may find disturbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admiration for a brave woman 30 Jun 2014

When I first started to read this book my heart ached for the little innocent and vulnerable child, by the end of the book I had nothing but admiration for a brave and courageous woman. A well written book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admirable and impossible to put down 29 July 2014
Verified Purchase
I write this through squinting eyes having started reading this book at 10pm last night and simply could not stop until I had finished it. To say it is worth the few hours of sleep I missed would be an understatement. I can be quite over-sensitive, getting especially upset if a child or animal is hurt however this book is written in such a way that by the end all I feel is pure admiration for the person who told their story, such an incredible woman. I am so sorry for what happened to the author, she will be in thoughts for a very long time wishing her the best of everything in life now. Thank you for telling your story.
