I would like readers to appreciate that Sue as a true friend and neighbour of mine, actully relived this all again while writing her novel. I think this perhaps was worse than the first time and she shed a great many tears and heartache while trying desperatley to put all these horrendous events to paper.
We shared many bottles of wine sometimes late into the nights for her to complete this book.
She only had the book published because we her friends and family insisted she must send it to a publisher.
The most courageous thing is that Sue is one of the kindest people you could ever wish to meet and nothing at all is any problem if she could help you in any way.
For Sue to have emerged from this horror and still have a great compassion for all human beings, regardless of their race, religion, etc. is the most heart warming end to this book.
I think many many times if it had been me, would I be so forgiving, somehow I don't think so.
Well done Sue and I look forward to your next book, to see how you fared after leaving and where your life progressed later.
Thanks once again for the boozy nights.
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.
Told from a child's point of view which makes it even more heartbreaking.
This is a story of Sue's life living in care, her mother is actually alive but always makes excuses as to why Sue can't come and live with her.
Her tales of managing to survive at the Barnardo's Homes are tragic, your heart goes out to the writer and god knows where she found the inner strength to always try and see the good in people.
Sue Martin comes across as a very strong and determined lady and in her case she did not have a choice but to grin and bear the cards life had dealt her.
This book is a real page turner and when you reach the end chapter the reader is left wanting more. I look forward to her next biography as to what happened next.

This is exactly the same book AS MUST NEVER CRY, very disappointed because I assumed this would have been the follow up.
But a very good read
