This is a powerful, moving account of a small girl dragged through one of Britains institutions during the 1940s and 1950s. Her struggle to survive not just physically but mentally is a testament to her own inward strengths and determination. Considering this is a true story it makes you wonder how many other children from the period could write such accounts.

Format: Paperback
This is a true story of how one mother in England "dumped" 5 of her 6 children into the hands of an organized for-profit orphanage from the late 1940's till the early 1960's. The mother "rescued" all but this one girl, who withstood horrific physical,emotional and sexual abuse at the hands of the caregivers who were supposed to love her.

The children were moved from home to home without warning so that the "incoming child count" would increase their profits. Treated like slaves and abused for minor infractions of "the rules," Susan decided early on that she would not allow them to destry her self-esteem.

The biggest fault I found in the book was that there is no epilogue. It suddenly ends, leaving the reader completely unaware of how her later life turned out. That was a disappointment.

The story is well written, characters are well defined, and the book flowed well. Sue gave credit when credit was due to those who were not involved in the horrible beatings, starvation and emotional abuses. The amazing thing was that most people in the community were aware of the abuse going on - and did nothing.

This book is well worth the money spent for those who read true stories of child abuse.

This book was great. I read this last year and it was so gripping and disturbing at the same time. What this author went through is way beyond suffering. I would recommend this book, but not for those that don't like this genre of books. Thanks to the author, you have touched me. So harrowing.
