Summary

Have you ever thought about the life of the children who have been abandoned by their parents and have no option but to live at the mercy of the care system? Do you wonder about the struggles these children go through emotionally, physically, and psychologically, and how many of them survive despite a most bleak outlook?

Diana Hylton recounts her life experiences in Both Sides of the Track, where she candidly shares details about her life during childhood and the traumas that haunted her while she was growing up, continuing into adulthood. This is a compelling and inspiring account of how Diana emerged from significant trauma, hopeful and determined, despite all the complexities that she encountered at every turn. She also details the principles that kept her motivated regardless of all the adversities and of which gave her the strength and courage to achieve justice, admirable progress and to ultimately thrive despite the odds being stacked against her from the start.

More than a memoir, this book also sheds light on the changes within the UK child protection system, the difficulties and the reforms which have significantly impacted social work practice and the important role of a child protection social worker.

Gritty story of a true warrior . Highly recommend.

Wow , just wow .
This is an incredible and sometimes painful listen .
While it’s hard to appreciate that one person can live through so much adversity and pain to hear her story unfold as she come out the other side as a wise, loving , forgiving, educated and caring woman is most heartwarming.
Truly a full circle life being lived through asouls purpose.
I encourage anyone to listen to this remarkable lady .
I wish her much success going forward. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️-⭐️
