Om boka

THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

When a fancy car pulls up outside six-year-old Marie's home in Oldham, in 1959, she is told she is going on holiday...

In fact, she is taken to live in a convent, overseen by a cruel and sadistic nun.

There, a horrific ritual of physical, sexual and mental abuse begins.

Marie feels unable to share details of her suffering with anyone. Until years later, when a police investigation is launched, and she realises that the time has finally come to tell the truth...

Om forfatteren

Almost 60 years after the abuse began, Marie Hargreaves has finally found the courage and strength to speak out about her ordeal. 'I cannot in all truth say that this ordeal has not, at times, dominated and defined me. I carried this heavy weight around for 60 years and it almost dragged me under. Now, by speaking out, I feel that my burden is lifting at last. The shame is no longer mine.'
