If you have tears to shed prepare to weep. A story of heartwrenching sadness but, in the end, one of the triumphs of the unbreakable human will. It will help to explain the damage done by an alcholic of those nearest and, supposedly, dearest. A great read, finished in two sessions!

I've just finished the girl in the wicker basket.In which Ann tells the story of her childhood. Its a very sad story of how she was beatan by her stepmother and stepfather all througout her childhood, and abused by her grandfather.She was treated by an outsider throughout her childhood. It then goes on to tell how she moved to London and married, her husband was an alcoholic and she had it very hard.I hope writting this book will help her come to terms with her past, and i wish her all the best. She is a true surviver. The book is a must read.

A shocking revelation of how unbelievable cruelty can be inflicted on an innocent child, a child who had amazing determination which she had to keep fightint to keep through an abusive marriage. No one should be subjected to this. She is a very brave lady to relive all the horror by writing her book. I hope it has helped her to lay some of the demons to rest and to move forward to live the rest of her life in true happiness and contentment.
It is a book you can't put down.

It's horrendous to think that people knew what was happening and would not speak up. Children were hushed up in the past but hopefully that has all changed now with helplines etc

I could not put this book down. I find it hard to understand how anyone could treat a child like this. Ann had such a sad life but showed such amazing courage I hope she now finds happiness.
