Summary

In 1976, Francis Beaumont spirited 11-year-old Kim Chown and her brother away from their mother to Africa, where he had taken a job as a university lecturer. There, behind a veneer of respectability, he terrorised and brutalised his own child, Kim, sexually and emotionally abusing her several times a day.

Only aged 20 did Kim feel able to escape from him, descending into alcoholism, after her siblings and mother refused to help her seek justice. But after almost ending her own life, Kim fought back. With the support of her husband and adult children, she finally faced him in court and won justice for his shocking crimes. 

This is one woman's inspiring true story of overcoming harrowing abuse to build a happy life - against all odds.

My first audio book. Very good

Saw this lady's story in the daily mail so decided to sign up for audible free trial to listen. It was very well-read and the story, although terrible, was gripping. Awful to think this isn't fiction.
