Summary

In this shocking memoir, Cassie Moore gives a very open and honest description of how she suffered and survived a lifetime of abuse. She describes the sexual, physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather and mother, who then sold her into marriage at the age of 16; the heartbreak she suffered when she naively left her 22 month old baby behind when she fled to London with the man she fell in love with, only to be abused by him for a further 23 years; the self-loathing, depression and despair she felt during those lonely years; and the enormous sacrifices she had to make to save herself and start a new life.

Moving, horrifying and requires patience

This book is very important. There is such honesty within this story that it is invaluable for society and should be read by everyone to raise awareness. I have a deep sympathy for the protagonist but on a selfish level I found this incredible frustrating to listen to. Just when you think things cannot get any worse, another disaster is around the corner.

There were points when I was actually shouting out loud at the audiobook in the car, finding it almost unbearable and unbelievable. The disaster-movie type story continues right up to the bitter end without relief really at any point.

Do not read if you are in a fragile state of mind.

brilliant book

this was a fabulous book. I highly recommend it. A touching and powerful memoir. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. As a child abuse survivor I could relate to a lot in it.

Amazing

This was an amazing story, I cannot imagine going through what she did. The narrator did a wonderful job, I spent any extra time I had listening to the book. Well done Cassie, well done. Thank you for sharing your story.

Did you hear me crying?

this is a very heart breaking story, it brings out so many questions of how anyone could ever harm a child. I would strongly recommend to anyone.
Put a light to things that happen in our world behind closed doors to our children.
