Product Description

Review

‘Truly moving.’ Fern Britten, This Morning

From the Author

Child Abuse has become a part of everyday life because we
choose to ignore it - it is too nasty to even consider that it happens.

The truth is, it happens and in order to learn we must first of all listen
to survivors stories. Not only will it educate society, it will heal the
survivor.

Every mother and father has a duty to protect and educate their children so
that they can feel safe in todays world.

Survivors - every day we are sad, down, lonely, shameful, guilty, depressed
or suicidal - the abuser wins!

Break free look forward not back and be sure in your heart that you are
never alone.

My love, thoughts and prayers are with the still suffering and may your God
be with you x --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I used to work with Stuart back in his Norweb days and I have to say that this does now explain some of his behaviour and a few of the things he told me about in the time we worked together. Stuart is a lovely guy and I am really glad to hear that he has now sorted himself out as he deserves to be happy.

On the flip side of this, I can well imagine that this book would help a lot of people who have suffered in this manner, as it shows you can get through and survive against the odds - sometimes accepting help is the hardest thing though and often for no fault of your own.

I think Stuart is phenomenally brave to have written about this for the world to read and I look forward to his next book.

All the best
Sarah

I read this book from cover to cover pretty much in one go. The strength and courage of the author shines through, in the way be dealt with his abuse and then took on the might of the prison service when he was further abused in prison. It should be compulsory reading for all those training to be social workers, magistrates, teachers and anyone else who has a role in child protection. it isnt an easy read, but it a compelling read. And you will cry as you read it.

Many don't kill their abusers even though they would like to and suffer for years for not doing just that believing their lack of action was a weakness. I don't condone killing another but can understand a little why he did I am not sure the end justifies the means but believe you have to walk in some ones shoes before judging there reactions. Stuart's abuser got off lightly in my opinion. There are so many books out about childhood abuse and survivor stories that one would think they read the same. This is so far from the truth, each book I have read writes from differing angles and the stories all unique in there own right. I admire the strength of Stuart and others who are able to speak out and say "Hi remember me I do count and no one had the right to do this"

Format: Hardcover
I found this book accidentally in our polish auction service and decided to buy it, although my english is not perfect. The description written by the seller got my interest but never in my worst nightmares I expected to find out what that little boy has been through.
What can I say - it is a breathtaking, heart-wrenching story, the more so that its's all true. It was hard to rate this book here, on amazon, because the option "I loved it" just didn't seem right - how can one "love" so terrifying story??? But I had no other choice. I read that cover to cover and was completely devastated. I felt so sorry for this little boy, for his stolen childhood and his lost trust. I just wanted to scream. I can't find the words to express my anger at his so-called father. This book changed something in me, although it was very hard to read. But there was hope at the end and I think every Survivor should read it and every parent of course. Here, in my country, such a problem as abusing children is often hidden, people still don't know how to talk to their children about some things that can be very important, they often don't know how to protect them. It looks like abusing doesn't happen here.
I wish this book was translated.

Stuart, i too was abused mentally, physically and sexually as a child. I can so relate to your feelings of worthlessness, insecurity, fear and not liking myself for what happened. Your book made me cry almost from beginning to end, but i so admire your strength and courage to fight back. You are an inspiration to us all. I thank you Stewart and wish you and your family the happiness and joy you so deserve my friend. Thank you. Best Regards, Jude.

I have read Stu's book after a long wait for the postman to bring it, I must say its a must for all readers to read and see what life is like for a child to be abused, walk in Stuarts footsteps and feel the pain that he and his family had to go through. I thank the Judge for being leniant with him and allowing him a better chance in life and to pass on his strenth to other people

He has shown other victims of abuse that there is a light at the end of that tunnel and all they need is courage to fight the demons.

Well done Stuart and give my love to Tracey xx

Having read this book from cover to cover I would like to say that Stuart has showed true courage and Bravery throught both his childhood and adulthood. I actually live very near to where this event took place and thank my lucky stars that I had the childhood that I did. I am glad to hear that Stuart is now able to get on with his life with his family (who obviously adore him very much).

Format: Hardcover
A horrible story but told with such finesse that you never want to stop reading. It is a shame on our society that these stories continue to happen and the precious children we should be protecting, are left to become victims of paedophiles, within their own families and without. A strong and riveting read.
