More About the Author

Lynne Barrett-Lee was born in London in 1959 and is married with three children. She has always written in her spare time, and planned early on to be the next Martin Amis or Ian McEwan. Sadly, neither of these eventualities looked like happening any time, ever, but, undeterred, she did begin to achieve publishing success in the mid 90s, as a writer of both articles and short stories for women's magazines, almost all of which have published her work over the years.

Her first romantic comedy, JULIA GETS A LIFE, was published by Bantam in 2000 and she has since written five further novels in her own name, as well as one, WILD ABOUT HARRY, under her pseudonym, Daisy Jordan. Her 2006 novel, BAREFOOT IN THE DARK, was shortlisted for the Melissa Nathan award for comedy romance, and might well have won (she likes to think), had Marian Keyes not been shortlisted too.

More recently, after an unexpected offer, she turned her hand to ghostwriting, co-writing the acclaimed NEVER SAY DIE with the incredible Melanie Davies, which was published in 2009, to great reviews.She has since ghosted several best-selling non-fiction titles, including GIANT GEORGE, Life with the World's Biggest Dog, and the recent Sunday Times Bestseller, THE BABY LAUNDRY. She also ghosts a major non-fiction series of memoirs for one of the UK's leading publishers.

As well as penning books, lynne writes a weekly column for Wales' Western Mail Weekend Magazine, is a regular guest on BBC Radio Wales, and has also written two titles for the Quick Reads series of books for adult learner readers - one ghosted for TV presenter Fiona Phillips. She also teaches creative writing at Cardiff University.

Format: Paperback
Books like this one are always tricky to review. Firstly you have to applaud the person for having the courage to put pen to paper and allow others to share their life story but in other respects some of the tales that make it to print aren't as harrowing as a number of articles that have appeared in women's magazines or the principle storyteller really has a lot of problems that really haven't been addressed.

The latter is the case in this title as Faith really hasn't addressed a lot of her own issues. Firstly she demonises her own mother as an uncaring woman, doesn't recognise an undiagnosed case of a mental disorder and when she suffers a lot of the same conditions in her own life as well as inflicting the same sort of damage on her own children she expects sympathy, almost as a you must feel sorry for me attitude.

Faith also wasn't the classic case of a downtrodden beaten woman with no self-esteem, she managed to get herself a career, passed exams in order to progress and then went to work for social services where she got to go to other people's homes and see a lot of the problems that were going on in her own, and yet she still did nothing to change it. The book is also contradictory in a number of ways for example she also laid claim to not being able to have a bath and smelling and then made throw away comments about how wonderfully the teachers thought that she was turned out. It doesn't make sense; you're either one or the other.

All in its well written but that's the best thing I can say about it which I suspect is only due to the talent of established author Lynne Barrett-Lee.

Yes its very brave and courageous to right a book like this and fair play to fs to go through with putting her story on paper, having been around fs i know that some of the later years have been changed to some thing there not - some true some not.
This book is a very good read if you work in social work. but would like to hear the real ending of the story as its all to chocolate box like.

I read this book in under 36 hours, it was so compelling that every spare moment i was reading, totally awe inspiring and took my breath away on practically every page.
i was amazed at how someone can write with such candor and honesty about something that is still considered taboo. the ending is just stunning, had me smiling and crying with admiration and i would not hesitate in recommending it to anybody

Having read it I wasnt impressed with the overall story line. It seems the person that wrote it has a fixation reather than an experience of the subject.

Format: Paperback
What an amazing book, superbly written, compelling, exciting, terribly sad in places, amusing in others, and I couldn't wait to turn the page and find out what happened next. I loved it, couldn't put it down. Should be in the study section and every other section as well. An important read, it clearly demonstrates what happens to children who are abused when they grow up, and how it is impossible to recognise and move out of abuse once born into it. I felt the vulnerability and powerlessness of the little girl who had no-one to turn too, and it was as if the author was speaking directly to me. I was willing her to leave the abusive situations she inevitably found herself in as an adult and I wanted to go and help her, hug her,tell her it was going to be alright. What a brave woman to write with such honesty and hearfelt detail. I recommend this book wholeheartedly.
