Publisher's Summary

For Kim Woodburn finding fame in her 60s in the smash hit television series How Clean is Your House? with fellow dust-buster Aggie Mackenzie is like living a fairy tale. Often she has simply wished that she had never been born, for Kim has overcome horrific emotional and physical abuse both at the hands of her alcoholic mother and her philandering, sexually abusive father. In her brave and revealing story Kim's memories of growing up are not of love and cuddles, but of beatings and random cruelty.
Shuttled between the brutal houses of her warring parents, a succession of miserable children's homes and a grim convent - Kim's past has cast a long shadow over her life.
But just before her 16th birthday she finally made her escape. It has taken decades of hard work, and a wonderfully happy marriage to conquer depression but now she has emerged unbowed and unbeaten as Britain's Queen of Clean.

Loved it and the fact it was read by the author.

I can thoroughly recommend it. Enjoyed it all, although very sad in some parts. But the girl came good in the end.
