5.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY SHOCKING, INSPIRATIONAL AND MOVING ACCOUNT, 5 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Way Home: The terrifying story of life in a children's home and a little girl's struggle to survive (Kindle Edition)
This is Sue Martin's debut novel, taking us on her journey through the Dr.Barnardo's Children's Home system between 1944 and 1957.

This was my second purchase on my Kindle over twelve months ago, and I couldn't put it down from the moment I started so it took me only a few days to finish. During that time I felt a plethora of emotions and I just thought OH NO how much more can one child take.

I, unfortunately had experience of the Children's Homes system myself in my youth (not Barnardo's) and felt every step of the way for Sue, although I don't think this was down to my own experience as much as Sue's immense strength of character in coping. Articulate and well written, it will shock everyone who reads it, me included, even though my own experience was not so dire.

I've just finished re-reading this book again, in readiness to read the sequel and it evoked just the same reaction leaving me completely humble once again. This lady shows such strength of character that left me feeling humbled. I hope the writing process has helped Sue along the way. I'd recommend this excellent, inspirational, riveting read to all.
