Publisher Description

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


But little does she know she will not see her home again for four long years. Her family cannot afford to keep her at home.  Marie tells the story of how she was taken away from a poor, but happy and loving home life, to live in a convent - away from everyone and everything she holds dear. Her hair is bluntly chopped, her clothes are taken away, and her name is changed. Then a horrific ritual of physical, sexual and mental abuse begins.  Even after the convent closes, Marie is unable to share details of her suffering with anyone. But when a police investigation is launched, Marie realises that the time has come to tell the truth...
