Book Description

9 July 2009

To the outside world, Lizzie McGlynn's father was a model citizen. To little Lizzie he was a violent and depraved monster.

For years, Lizzie was raped and beaten by her father, whilst her alcoholic mother stood by, helpless. She eventually found the courage to report him and her father was imprisoned - but 12 weeks later he was allowed to return to the family home and continue his reign of terror. He seemed to be above the law.

Battered and violated, Lizzie knew she had to stay alive to protect her two little brothers. She went on to escape her father's evil clutches, but the physical and mental scars continued to haunt her.

Then, as her father lay dying, she summoned the strength and courage to forgive the man who had caused her so much pain.

Product Description

Book Description

This is a tale of soul-destroying abuse - but it is also an unflinching look at a little girl let down by the welfare system designed to protect children from evil

From the Author

I honestly hope that this book is of help to survivors as my whole reasoning behind the book was to let others know that they are not alone and yes we do punish ourselves over and over again as we are conditioned to feel unworthy but you have to take control of your life and realise you are worthy and no one on this earth has any right to judge you or any other fellow human being. So please turn the tables stand up speak out, be united with other survivors and be strong. If you endured any dreadful ordeal in your childhood and you survived you are made of tough stuff so keep up the fight you are worth it please be kind to yourself :) love lizx

5.0 out of 5 stars Survival 2 Sep 2009
As a Survivor of abuse I found this book an inspirational yet tragic story of a child's fight for survival. Her violent father tore Lizzie a young girl apart piece by piece in his reign of physical and sexual torture as the adult world around her failed to recognise what was happening. Lizzie suffered what no child should have to endure and it went from bad to worst. Just as things start to look up in her bleak world what comes next took me by suprise. Blow by blow this remarkable woman tells her story in a way you can't help but be be drawn into her life so be prepared to explore your emotions when reading this book. Lizzie's love for her siblings never faltered as she assumed the role of mother and just when she found the courage to speak up she was failed by the very system that should of protected her and with devastating consequences. This book is well written, captures the full cycle of abuse and the long term damage it does to a child. I forgive you daddy highlights further that every abused child grows up and the impact it has on them as an adult. I strongly recommend this book and I thank Lizzie for sharing her life with us. With love to a very courageous woman Lizzie McGlynn

4.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreaking 31 Oct 2009
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
A true tale of horror from the heart rendering experiences of an abusee. Whilst this tale does cover the time in her life when she underwent the abuse, this tale does go further than most others by continuing her story up to modern times. Such as how it affected her own life, including her own experiences such as becoming a mother alongside the sad descent into substance abuse from which she clawed her way back after many years.

The title I did feel was misleading and did put me off reading the book initially and felt that it was going to be a story all about her forgiving her father but when that aspect arrived it did make sense and I'm glad that I read it cover to cover despite the tears that it generated. Definitely one of the best examples of this type of book and if you want one of this genre then this is definitely a must buy as it shows that abuse victims suffer a life sentence rather than having a magical wand waved upon leaving home. It's the tale of the abuse victim that should be put out there to allow readers to learn as well as understand the minds of the victim with the frank experiences and words of a woman with relatively nothing left to lose as everything was taken from her.

5.0 out of 5 stars I forgive you, daddy 12 Aug 2010
This is a review I did for my website:

"A brave little girl terrified of the continuous abuse she endured, beaten, assaulted and raped by her farther. There were times she dared believe that these horrors would come to an end. But she would learn how the system could fail someone... so much. The signs were there, but it was more than that. Those that should have done more... didn't do enough, especially when that brave little girl stood up and spoke out. It led to her father being imprisoned, only remarkably for him to be able to return, only a few months later, to continue her and her family's ordeal. But throughout it all, she learned to forgive as she stood by her dying father's bed. So she could at least try and move on, and remove herself from her father's grip. She now stands with others... as a force for change."

5.0 out of 5 stars shocking 11 Aug 2009
A shocking account of what a little girl had to endure whilst growing up but, well worth reading.
Lizzie tells the story of her abusive life and the so called system that let her and her siblings down. Despite everything she managed to pull through and become the stronger person she is today.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devastating story 29 April 2010
I am not much of a reader, I bought this for my girlfriend and decided to read a couple of pages which ended up with me reading the full book. This is a devastating story but an excellent book to read, written by an unbelievably strong character. This book will break your heart, but is a must read and an eye opener for those unaware of the terrible situations children like Liz and her family have had to deal with. Definitely a story that should inspire anyone with terrile problems to have the strength to carry on and make a new life as successfully as Liz has.

5.0 out of 5 stars GRIPPING! 22 Feb 2012
By BAZ316
I have read several books of this ilk and this has to be one of the best written,truely gripping from start to finish. The problem being i was going through the pages,reading about the sadistic abuse her father inflicted upon her and thinking how could you ever forgive this vile creature? So it is a book that gets you mad,not just at the sick father but also the lack of support from those who were meant to be looking out for abused kids. There may be red tape and all but come on,this little girl needed help and quickly.
And so the book goes on to tell of life after her father's wrath and perverted lifestyle that she was the victim of,well it's hardly surprising she falls apart on several occasions and turns to a life that will ultimately destroy what remaining control you have,but somehow she survives to tell her tale and i'm so glad she did,she may have her problems today but she stands proud and so she should. Much of this book made me feel ashamed to be a man even though she doesn't slate all men,so it's not her doing,i just felt uncomfortable knowing so many depraved men used her. The next thing i felt ashamed for was being a human being on a planet so full of sick people and authorities seemingly not giving a crap,it really does get you mad.
I'll finish by saying a big thank you to a truely remarkable person,here's to a better future for LIZZIE McGLYNN.
