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 Admirable and impossible to put down 29 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart wrenching 6 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was written in a completely non-scandalous way.About an ordinary girl,it has been written without added drama and just tells the facts,engaging the reader by its very simplicity.A traumatic story for a woman who has had the strength to move on with her life partly due to the cathartic effect of writing this autobiographical account of something which has,unfortunately,been rife in this country.
Well worth reading,if only to appreciate the difficulties that some have to endure at a tender age.Huge admiration for 'Louise' that she has managed to salvage her life-some never do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Admiration for a brave woman 30 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Child Abuse 4 Oct 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This story was very sad and shows how children are too afraid to speak up. The child had an old head on her shoulders at such a young age thinking she would upset her mother or grandmother when both her father and grandfather had passed away. Her mother was quite selfish and not thinking how these events affected her little girl. It should never happen but unfortunately child abuse continues

3.0 out of 5 stars Gripping read 5 Aug 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Very gripping read could not put this down. Hard to believe that it's a true story and that anyone could be treated in this way let alone a young innocent child and by someone in a position of trust, horrible and shocking. It did make me cry. I wish "Louise" all the very best and thank you for sharing your story I really do hope it has helped you.

Deep and powerful. A book which touches the heart of any human. Suffering child abuse can make you strong to help others on your adult journey, and I hope this was the case for this beautiful little girl.
