4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Sheila Camp VINE VOICE on 4 Sept. 2010
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Although there are a lot of books out about child abuse and sometimes you think "they're all the same" it's still interesting to read how each person copes with their situation. I kept willing Alice just to say no and leave. She had her brother to go to but couldn't make that decision because of her love for her mum. When she finally did leave she wasn't a child anymore but a young woman who didn't know how to get to the train station - this was sad. A gripping read. Although it refers to Joseph Fritzl on the back cover of the book, having read Elizabeth's book I didn't find myself comparing the two. Read both books, and feel nothing but praise for both girls' strength and determination.

I read your book because I was a victim myself. Not by a relative. But a friend of the family from the age of 7. I can't remember how long for. But all my live I had trouble with sex,however I have a lovely husband and we are married for 26years. I'm 54years old now, but still I have problems. Feel guilty about what happened to me and even I know it wasn't my fault I keep thinking it was. I would had a more loving relationships with my husband if I had gone in terapy, but I didn't, and that's sad as it is the only thing what is wrong in or relationship. When I was in my 40 's I told mum. She didn't believe me and said all kids play doctor and nurses. I was really hurt, I was 7 he was 18years old. My husband said I shouldn't read books about abuse as it depresses me. But I feel drown to it, because nobody seems to understand how you feel. I think you have to be a victim to understand. But what your and other books about abuse do is giving other people or young children the courage to speak up

A sad, sad story. Its difficult what to write, because this book is so harrowing. A whole families life wrecked because they had a sadistic animal living in their midst. I admire Alice and her brothers loyalty to their mother, and I know it is not easy to escape from a man like this. However, all these innocent kids lives were ruined and a mothers first and foremost role is to protect her children. I am afraid I feel the mother neglected her responsibilities. I dont like to say this because I know she was much loved by her children, however, I feel the mother allowed the abuse to go on because she was too weak to do otherwise and poor Alice was left to do what her mother wouldnt or couldnt. All I can say is, If I had been the mother I am afraid if I wasnt strong enough to walk out with my children then , well lets say, ..... he had to sleep some time. Alice seems to live with so much guilt because she could not help her mother. All I can say to Alice is, "love your mothers memory, but feel no guilt and forge a happy life for your and your children. You deserve it x"

Alice's story has been running through my head since reading this book. I am glad that she found the courage to break free and has told her story to help others. These types of books have become almost entertainment for some, but we should all never forget the reason we are able to read their stories, we must all be vigilant about abuse, and the fact that most abuse is committed by someone close to the child. I hope it gives people the strength to come forward and start a process of being free.

This book was emotional, gripping and reading it you felt like you were experiencing her pain. There were times when I wanted to scream "Get up. Leave!"
I couldn't put this book down and completed it in two days. It is a dreadful thought to think that that actually happened, but comforting to know there was some sort of happy ending.
Amazing and well written story of pain and triumph. Well recommended.

I enjoyed this book in that it was very well written. The content was quite harrowing and some readers may find it too graphic at times. I am still in shock at what this poor girl has been through in her life. It astounds me that a human being can treat another in this horrific way, especially their own daughter. I feel it's a book that will stay with me..

Could not put this book down. I just had to get to the end.. what a strong person she turned out to be, I am sure people will find it hard to believe that such things can happen but being a ex foster carer nothing surprises me. The book is well written and goes into a lot of detail but she had to, to get through to the readers how bad it was

This very courageous piece of writing must have been such a difficult book to write. I admire you so much for staying with your mum. I do hope you now can have a truly happy life. I never realised these things happened and my heart go out to all victims. I hope that by writing your story Alice that others will be helped.
