Publisher Description

From the age of four, Jane Elliott was forced to carry a terrible secret…

Dominated, bullied and sexually abused by her stepfather for 17 years, The Little Prisoner is a devastating true story of one girl’s struggle from freedom.

Held as a prisoner, subject to horrendous emotional and physical abuse, it wasn’t until Jane was 21 that she managed to escape. But it took another five years of living in hiding before she felt able to go to the police.

Nearly every witness who could have attested to the evil and violent behaviours of her stepfather was too frightened to come forward. Would the judge and jury believe Jane and her small band of brave supporters?

The Little Prisoner is the shocking, astonishing and ultimately uplifting true story of one woman’s shattering twenty-year ordeal; and how she triumphed over an evil and violet human monster when honesty and bravery were her only weapons. A heart-rending and inspirational tale of courage and survival.
