Summary

Child Abuse True Stories presents: Volume 3 of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography!

In this much-publicised third volume, Kat recounts her early-mid teen years; no longer a small child, but a girl on the cusp of adolescence. Still traumatized by her early experiences, but not entirely without that sense of vague hope that is the inalienable property of youth.

Now at Duncroft Approved School for “emotionally disturbed girls”, her life had come to resemble that of a prisoner; a good day was a bad one and a bad day was horrific. A pattern interrupted only by the periodic visits of a certain creepy old man in a shiny tracksuit, with a pocket full of a cigars and a caravan full of demands.

There were Rolls-Royce trips to London. There were jaunts to TV studios. And, of course, for Kat, as with most of the girls, there were dreams of a brighter future. But despite all the promises, there was simply no way out. For at almost every turn, another nefarious character was waiting to take advantage of the girls that no-one would believe anyway.

honest and sad

I have read all three of Keri's books and her life story is both shocking and sad. It makes me feel so grateful for the life I have had and opens my eyes to how vulnerable children can be be abused by the very people who should protect love and keep them safe .
I would like to hear the rest of the story of Keri's adult life. thank you for sharing this story with us Keri you are so brave. Excellent read.

Honest, passionate and heartbreaking

A magnificent but sad, journey through Keri’s teenage years. One I’ve cried at so many times but had to listen on. Transfixed and waiting to see what twists and turns her journey takes.. I need to know more this is number 3 of the three I’ve read. But it’s a journey I’m not ready to let go of. I need to know how her life panned it ! An incredible book written from the heart. Thank you for sharing your story

Contradicting,

In one book she loves maths in the last one she hates math, in the 2nd book she was 4 months away from her 16th birthday that tramp was going to take her away and marry her but in the 3rd book she says she was 14 when she was with tramp ,

The ending

I hear all three book and I couldn’t stop. Love the book, the story is unbelievable, you go through so many emotions. As a mother I can’t believe the women could act in such a way towards her child.

The only thing I was unhappy or disliked was the way the book ended. I know there isn’t always a happy ending of ever story but would like to know how she got to publishing her books and if she ever end up marrying and having kids of her own?

Great continuance to Keri's life

I'm hoping Keri comes out with a book 4, she leaves you hanging, on how she does moving out on her own and where's she at today...

Abrupt ending but love this story and the character!

I feel like I needed something a bit more, unless there will be more? Perhaps a Keri 4? I feel volume 3 ended abruptly... I am a fan of this story however. My heart goes out to this woman. She is amazing and so very strong. She is an inspiration ! Her mother didn’t deserve her or the loving mother and father she had! I hope she read these volumes and realized what a monster she really is!

Abused and Not Heard

All of the Kerri stories, 1,2 and 3 are very touching, very well written. There is so much truth to how the abused child is not heard despite her attempt.
The narrator is excellent. I want to hear more.
