5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down - a survivor at last 4 Sep 2010
By Sheila Camp VINE VOICE
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So sad. 16 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
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 story that makes you wonder what really goes on behind closed doors. Totalling heartbreaking to think any little girl should go through something like this at the hands if someone who should have been her protector. A gripping read

5.0 out of 5 stars Freedom from torment. 3 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very in-depth story of a well written book. Alice you are an inspiration to others that are or have been in similar situations. You didn't allow him to take anymore of your future. Very brave of you, your children should be very proud of you. The damage which was done will always be with you, but only you can control it now. He should have received a life sentence.

Such a sad story on how you can never escape fears until justice is served, truly vile on how a father could do that to his children
