Book Description

This is a true account of the abuse of a middle-class child by sadistic and deviant parents. It was only when this story was written down that a full understanding of their motives emerged. A blighted, frightening and ruined childhood was the result. Survival came through faith and renewal. Looking back to a poverty-stricken, abusive childhood from my current life of ease, luxury and fulfilment, I can hardly credit that it happened. I never refer to Hilda and Reg as Mum and Dad. They do not deserve the compliment.
After reading this book you may wish to see the sequel "Student Nurse May 1966"

It took just a day to read this book - I could not put it down. To read about such cruelty and then to tuck my children in a warm bed at night having filled their bellies with a hearty meal - leaves one wondering what on earth was going through these people's minds when they carried out such evil?

Highly recommended, a book written with such courage. Well done Annette.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting account of a dreadful childhood 31 May 2015
By Haglet
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I read this after first of all reading the author's second book, "Student Nurse, May 1966", because I wanted to put the people mentioned in that book into context. My own life has many similarities in that my parents were abusive though not to the extreme degree that Annette's were. My mother was a textbook narcissist who was psychologically abusive and who brought me up against my father, who was violent towards me and my sister but never towards my mother. Like Annette's mother, mine was never wrong, criticised everyone, and deemed perfectly decent people to be "common". I can understand that nothing was done to help Annette and her two younger siblings because that is exactly how it was in the 1960s. I too, was a Grammar School educated child, but my experiences there were happier than Annette's, and at least I felt safe at school. Again, this book has irritating Americanisms in it , such as "math" instead of "maths", and "bobby socks" instead of ankle socks. Like the author, I also went on to train as a nurse at a London Teaching Hospital, so this added to the similaritites. I'm sure that she found writing this account cathartic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Can't believe 29 April 2014
By Lil
Format:Kindle Edition
Can't believe the raf turned a blind eye to this cruelty and abuse even in the 50s . The author should be very proud of the achievements she has made considering the life she had but the book was very repetitive and not well written. Would not recommend this book .

2.0 out of 5 stars A sad rant 26 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
You can't help but feel for this woman, the loss of a childhood at the hands of her pathetic parents but it really is just a long monologue of repetitive ranting, such a shame because beneath all the repetition is a good story. I grew up in the British Army and was in Aden in 1960 -62, she brought back some happy memories, so i thank her for that. I was determined to read to the end although at times i began to wonder if it would be worth it. The need to convey on every page of how often she was beaten actually tends to weaken the story but understandable given the experiences.

4.0 out of 5 stars Survival in Hell 25 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title of this book grabbed my attention and I just had to read it, from the start I couldn't put it down.

I don't understand how parents can cause their children so much pain and show them nothing but hate and violence. This book is not for the faint hearted, as it is emotionally charged from the start.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't like. 9 Jan. 2014
By Gillian
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The story was just awful. Very believable, I was a victim myself, being a SNCO's wife- the establishment did not have any care's for the wife or children, only their own. My main problem was- repetiion throughout the book. Thank goodness those three girls did well for them selves.

Could not stop reading. Cannot understand how wicked parents can be towards their own children. Respect to all the three girls for living through this sort of abuse.
