(The Sunday Tribune The Sunday Tribune)

(Ireland on Sunday Ireland on Sunday)

'A sad reminder of the closed society which we tolerated until very recently'

(Leinster Leader Leinster Leader)

'an incredible and disturbing story'

(Southside People Southside People)

'Nuala's tale is an emotional one that makes for compulsive reading'

(Cathy Kelly)

'... will strike a chord with any woman who has been trapped into a bad relationship, but I guarantee you none of you will ever have equalled the likes of the horrors perpretrated on this poor girl before she finally broke out of her cage.'

I read this book in around six hours as i was unable to put it down. What that poor girl actually went through only she knows. One can only imagine. Im surprised she didnt actually commit suicide. I can honestly say im sure i'd have killed "the husband" and done time for it. How she kept her sanity one can only guess. A must read for those who enjoy reading about real life. Fantastic but very sad.

Sold into slavery more like. I could not believe this actually happened in the 'liberated' 70's with all the glamrock stuff that was going on. Something tells me that somewhere in this island, similar treatment of young women is still going on.
This book was riveting from the first shocking page until the end. I couldn't put it down and when I did, I thanked God for the wonderful life I had growing up in the same period.
This book was very well written albeit painful for the 'victim' and I hope she can move on from this nightmare.

Really easy to read book and I enjoyed every page of it. The book is about a 16 year old girl sold as a bride to an elderly man by her father. The book made me feel sad, angry, emotional, happy - I lived every moment of the book. I love these sort of books and it made a good holiday read for me. Highly recommended.

I felt this book could have been really good but for the person who wrote it. I feel there was no emotion in the book simply because she was telling someone else's story. I think if the victim had penned this book it would have been much better because we would have heard how she felt from her own mouth. It's not the authors fault. She could not possibly know how the victim felt meaning she wrote it as a piece. The author is an excellent writer, that shines through, just not so good at writing other people's stories. Sorry

Enjoyed this book, cannot believe this could of happened in the 70s, but then we are talking about Ireland, which has a slower pace of life, felt annoyed at times with Nuala's mother and the priest who could of spoke up and actually done something about it.
Great read
