Summary

A shocking true tale of childhood abuse at the hands of a stranger. 

Sophie Jenkins is living a happy life in the idyllic Dorset countryside when she meets Martin Brett, the man who will go on to abuse her and haunt her dreams for years to come. A momentary act of neglect leads to a horrible series of events that leaves her changed forever. Badly let down by the adults entrusted to care for her, Sophie’s life begins to spiral downward. 

However, Sophie’s message is ultimately one of hope and empowerment. She is in the process of rebuilding her life when fate leads her to encounter her childhood attacker once again. The story ends with a truly shocking climax.   

Warning: This audiobook is based upon a true story of child abuse and contains passages that some listeners may find disturbing. All names and places have been changed to protect the identities of the innocent. (Cover photograph is posed by a model and is used for illustrative purposes only.)

well worth a read/listen.

This was such a sad, well written story. It really makes you more aware of the dangers out there.

Child Abuse. Learn all you can.

There are so many twists and turns to the abuse children experience. This is a great example of how some parent's absolutely fail to protect their children. One bad decision and one unprotected night have adversely impacted this child's entire life forever. A must read for Guardians Ad Litem's and CASA's.
