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.

I have someone in my family who sounds exactly like Reg. My uncle beat my cousins to the point of broken bones and black eyes. He also is the tightest bugger who made his children suffer, failing to provide decent meals, clothes, hygiene products including sanitary towels, toothpaste etc. Birthday and Christmas presents were household items such as kitchenware, as he drummed it into them that from their 16th birthday they must move out. This then resulted in my cousins being bullied at school. The shocking thing is he fosters for a living, but proving these facts would be near impossible. I really felt I could relate to this story, who knows maybe we all have known or heard about a family similar to this.
This book is a real eye opener to abuse of this kind. Most books on abuse subjects do not cover neglect, but this book proves that is can be devastating.
Do not shrug it aside and think that it isn't as serious as other types of abuse. Neglect is usually over a long period of time, and it is day in, day out. No chance to be a child and developing a personality in the fear of a beating, and not being supplied with love, cuddles, toys, security, decent food, hygiene products, clothes etc. Imagine being a child and living each and every day in pure fear. It beggars belief that people like this can have children.
Love to the author, thanks for sharing your story x

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.

A really good book makes you wonder how people can be so wicked
and a brave person to pull through such an ordeal.

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 .

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.

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.

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.
