When your whole childhood and young adulthood have been devastated by abuse, how do you forgive those who harmed you? When the people who harmed you are your parents, how can you possibly get over that?

Lydia Ola Taiwo told the shocking story of her ruined childhood in her first book, A Broken Childhood: A True Story of Abuse. In this new volume she continues the story, describing how she and her sister were taken to Nigeria, away from the prying eyes of the UK authorities. Stuck in a boarding school in a strange country, subject to careless treatment from unknown relatives during the holidays and continued abuse when her mother returned to Nigeria, somehow she managed to find the inner strength to keep going. Would she ever escape from the endless cycle of cruelty and manipulation?

This is a story of individual human courage, of one woman’s determination to live life on her own terms when even her closest family were hell-bent on destroying everything she had.

    I can count on my fingers the number of books I’ve read from start to finish all my nearly 50years. This is book had me spellbound from start to finish, both part 1 and part 2. It’s difficult to imagine that these experiences are real and that the victim is not only still alive but has forgiven totally!

    A must-read for social workers, teachers and all who work with and for children… too many lessons.
