An inspirational true story of a 4 year old girl who fell into the power of a man whose evil knew no bounds. She encountered terrifying mental and physical torture from her psychopathic stepfather for a period of 17 years until she managed to break free, her spirit still unbroken Jane Elliott fell into the hands of her sadistic and brutal stepfather when she was 4 years old. Her story is both inspiring and horrifying. Kept a virtual prisoner in a fortress-like house and treated to daily and ritual abuse, Jane nonetheless managed to lose herself in a fantasy world which would keep her spirit alive. Equally as horrifying as the physical abuse Jane suffered, were the mental games her tormentor played -- getting his kicks from seeing Jane humiliated, confused, crushed and defeated at every turn. Her family and neighbourhood were all terrified of Jane's stepfather so no-one held out a rescuing hand. So Jane had to help herself. When she was 21 she ran away with her baby daughter and boyfriend to start a new life in hiding. Several years on she found the courage to go to the police. A court case followed where Jane bravely stood up against the unrepentant aggressor she so feared.He was jailed for 17 years. Jane's family took his side.

A truely horric story which shows one young womens amazing strength and courage. Some of this book is almost too sickening to read, yet you just can not put it down. You must read this book, we live our lives in ignorance not knowing what some people have to endure during their childhood. This book makes you grateful for the smallest things in life. Wishing you all the luck in the world Jane.x x

 VERY INTERESTING,BUT DISTURBING

Top 100 Music Reviewer

I really can see both sides to this one,those that hate it and those that say it's a must read.
It is a nasty experience to read about and told in a very explicit way that may well disturb a lot of people.
This does surpise with the way it's written,short sections to read and bits and pieces of memories to get to grasp with.
But saying that,it does capture the attentention,with the girl getting all this horrific abuse in every way you can imagine pretty much,you do hope there is a victim wins over foe outcome,but it's very uncomfortable reading throughout.
Certainly you are glad she is telling her story and putting it out there that SILLY GIT is this sick filhty,pathetic excuse for a man,but it did make me feel a little weird that it wasn't until she was in her twenties that she did something about it.
I do understand fear can stop you doing what you know you should,but to think at 18 plus she is still being sexually abused by this creature,that does surprise.
Clearly a brave woman for telling her story and not the happy ever after story you might hope for but still a very interesting read,a read that makes you hate most of the pathetic family that she had to put up with,a bunch of cowards that only pick on those that can't fight back,but still i just couldn't help but feel frustrated that it took so many years for her to say what she had to say and put a stop to this creature.
Very good in terms of an interesting read of sickening abuse,but for a book with a stronger woman telling the story of this nasty subject of abuse,i recommend JUDY WESTWATER's books. A different kind of abuse maybe,but brilliantly told. Still,i wish the author of this book a brighter future
