"'If you read any book this year, read this one. He overcame the horrors of his childhood and went on to help others. Believe this story, weep, then cheer his triumph' Martina Cole"

About the Author

Michael Seed was born in Manchester and adopted as a baby. His adoptive mother committed suicide when he was eight. He was then raised by his grandmother in the Salvation Army. He was dyslexic and was sent to a special boarding school for maladjusted children, but still didn't learn to read until he was 12. He is a Roman Catholic and has been a Franciscan Friar for 25 years. He has been at Westminster Cathedral in London for 23 years, as Secretary of Ecumenical Affairs under the late Cardinal Hume and Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor.

I managed to read this book within 2 nights and felt upset and overwhelming for Michael Seed. His childhood is sad, horrible and degrading. A family who all hate each other and especially Michael. As much as you can gather his mum does love him, but she fails to stop any abuse from his father There is a bit at the ending where Michael finds out some information to do with his family, which must of been devastating. But he comes through it and continues to make a success of his life. This book is a must read, it shows a strong lad who has got where he is today through courage.

I wept tears of sorrow at the start of this book and wept tears of joy at the end. After literally enduring a tortuous childhood at the hands of his father and his relations, Fr Seed rises to give other people the love that was denied to him. The amazing thing is that throughout the whole book nowhere does Fr Seed seem to feel sorry for himself. An awesome book written by an awesome man.

Read in one sitting even though after reading the first couple of chapters realised I had read it before. It's a very sad, emotional book showing a very courageous lad who endured so much and was able to come out the other side to help others

I can't believe how evil some people can be.... that poor boy. I'm glad you are speaking to your real family members. It's amazing how u have come through your life in the way that u have, just one criticism the last parts I felt were rushing us to get to the end. And to be very honest I was a little bored with all the priest stuff

I found this book quite sad. As a mother of six beautiful children who wouldn't harm a hair on their heads this is quite difficult reading. It's only as things evolve in the book leaps things become kind of clear as to the actions of people involved but never excusable. Father Michael seed is tantamount that good can rise above evil and conquer. A truly inspirational man whom I'm glad had eventually found his calling in life despite his educational difficulties and the happiness in his family life that was so cruelly denied him from the beginning

I absolutely could not believe how cruel some people can be.A los how some one could have such bad luck for it to happen again and again and no one to do anything about it.l am so happy things turned out well in the end.He is a remarkable young man and should be very proud of himself.Life can be very hard for some people but it can make them strong to change things.This was a gripping read and I was glad to get to the end to see what happens to him.lt was worth five stars and took one day to read so that says it all.

I find it hard sometimes to read books that tell such an awful tale of childhood. How on earth Michael came through this and coped with all that his evil so called family threw at him is quite simply beyond me. An inspiration to many.. I cant add anything to other reviews . It s all been said.. evil pure evil.
