Description

From the age of three Sheena Harrison was brought up by her grandmother whilst her own mother, Kathleen, sought work in America. Kathleen later returned for her daughter, but her mother refused to hand her over, saying Sheena had settled into her new home. She left once more for the States, believing that Sheena would be loved, cared for and kept safe. What she did not know was that Granny Morag would go on to allow, indeed facilitate, the horrific abuse of little Sheena. From the age of four, she was appallingly abused by members of her own family, being little more than a plaything for their perverted desires.

Her uncle and others saw abuse as normal, and they raped and assaulted her with impunity. As she entered her teenage years, Sheena became highly promiscuous and also needed medical attention for some of the damage inflicted upon her.

In this book, Sheena tells her full story with heart-breaking honesty. It is a story of cruelty and horror, but also one which shows the remarkable resilience of the human spirit. Sheena's experiences are almost unimaginable and yet she has survived them as a reflective, caring woman who can both forgive and look ahead. It is a story which will make you angry but will also touch your heart.

    Reading this just tore my heart out of my chest. A precious child should never have to endure such horrors. It took huge courage to write this. Thank you.

    This is an amazing story and it is so heart wrenching. The pain and agony that one little girl had to go through because she had an ignorant and heartless grandmother and aunt is terrible. I really enjoyed the story even though it was sad. I just hope that wherever she is today that she is happy and that if any of the abusers are still alive that they are leading a very sad and lonely life, as they deserve no better.

    I'm not sure where to start?? I almost put this book back after the 2nd chapter as it upset me... Being a sole parent and wondering what it would have been like to up and leave your child in the clutches of such a horrid woman?!? I guess it could have turned out differently had there been a "sliding door" moment. I'm guttered that stories like this actually happen to people, that they start to believe the lies and they now have to live the memories that were inflicted upon them at such a impressionable age... I thank my blessings that "sheena" can see a side that I'm not sure I'd be as strong to entertain the thought...

    Reading your story took me back to when I was abused as a child. We, the victims have to live with it but I have moved on with my life, but sadly my sister just can't let go and still suffers from the torment and is slowly eating her away. I will recommend this book to her and hopefully Sheena's story will help her through it better. What doesn't break you makes you stronger - and I strongly believe that.

    Was hoping for a happy ending but there really wasn't one. It just made me want to hug my babies a bit tighter. I'm so incredibly sorry for the writer, but overwhelmed by her strength....

    Terrifying and so real. I wanted to stop and couldn't put it down. I would've liked to see some photos. Apart from that all good.
  • Sadest book I've ever read

    Such a hard book to read by a mother. I couldn't put it down and even cried in parts and I'd never be able to do what that women did. Never in a million years would I forgive those people. I hope they died horribly!

    A harrowing believable tragedy. A courageous story of hurt, betrayal and over-all love and forgiveness.
