I am very fussy about grammar and spelling in the books I buy for my Kindle and I am usually highly critical. This book is full of peculiar grammar choices and incorrect spelling and for once I didn't care, because it didn't matter. The author's style is very conversational and the grammar and spelling mistakes do not detract from this, so despite the inaccuracies it was still a pleasure to read and it felt as if Moll French was in the room, telling me about her past. I miss her now that I have finished reading the book.

Moll was no angel herself and she comes across as a strong, challenging personality. Her story is believable. She did not have underage sex and her husband did not break the law, he was just - as the title of the book says - a dirty old man who should have known better. I understand entirely why she married him and put up with him for so long, and I think she was in love with him when they married, even though she does not remember it that way. Whilst I am nothing like Moll, I have experienced a destructive relationship myself and I think I learnt a lot from it, as I am sure she did, too. I was able to identify with her and I understood exactly why she found it so hard to leave. In my view relationships will always be difficult for Moll and I hope that the happiness and security she has now found will last a long time.

This is the story of Moll who is singled out of her siblings to be the only one that is abused physically and mentally.It tells of her abuser her moms choice to ignore it and the fight she has to eventually to come through it.This is not graphically written that is left to the imagination, but it is a heartrending and informative read of a girls brave story who lost her childhood to a cruel father.

This story is so sad and shows what abused children put up with and how someone will stay with their partner even when Bering beaten up. I was so glad that everything turned out well for her and that every thing she had been through made her stronger as a person and that she found love in the end
