Under the cover of anonymity, Paul Saunders courageously tells his shockingly true story of how he and his stepsiblings were repeatedly abused by their mother and stepfather. It doesn’t make “easy” listening, but living through it wasn’t fun, either.
Paul’s father selfishly deserted him and his mother for another woman when Paul was just coming up to two years of age. Paul’s mother quickly entered into a new mixed race relationship, which in 1960’s Britain was very much frowned upon.
Consequently, Paul and his mother were instantly ostracized by their family and friends, and they were left to suffer/ witness dreadful physical abuse and neglect at the hands of Roy, an evil and very sick man.
The following is a harrowing story and may be - should be - as distressing to listen, as it is for me to write. However, the events that took place during the years 1963 to 1980 need to be recorded, for the sake of future generations of children to come and out of respect to all the children who have already suffered at the hands of demonic parents.
I especially dedicate this book to one hell of a brave boy, my stepbrother little Paul, who sadly died with a great deal of dignity at the young age of 19 from cancer, after years of horrific abuse. God bless him.
