Martha Jette brings this terrifying story to your eyes. Although this book is fiction, it is based on a Newfoundland family of 12 children in the 1960's. In a little town, their whore of a mother physically and sexually abuses the kids, also selling them out to others in the town.
The story is told by the now 40-year-old Timmy, who was the oldest of the dozen. He tells of his mother bringing home men all the time, while his dad was working as a fisherman. Because of this, his father was never home and that brought out the devil in the family's house. The mom would constantly beat her children with anything she could grab and blew up over nothing. Not only that, she also sexually molested her children. She would let adult men touch her daughters for a few dollars. The kids tried to tell people of this torture but no one listened, especially because all of the powerful people in the town were having sex with their mom. Politicians, neighbors, a judge, and others all took part in sexually abusing the children, of course for a few bucks. Even their grandpa molested them. But none of them were ever caught.
I recommend this book to every single person on this earth. Whether it interests you or not, you need to read this book and learn of the tormenting these kids went through. Hopefully this book will open the eyes of people, and justice could be brought to those disgusting people. Read this book and learn from it, I did.
Twelve children were physically and sexually abused and to this day, the evil people that committed those unspeakable acts have still not been brought to justice. The kids will forever be affected by their childhood of beating and molestation. I can't even imagine how anyone could do what was done to that family. "Playing with the Devil" shows there are nasty people in the world, who could do anything to those kids with no consequences.
