Four extraordinary true stories...Bobby and Micky, six and four, controlled from beyond the grave by their evil father ...Mina, seventeen, who has Downs Syndrome, desperate to be like everyone else, falling into the hands of men who abuse her trust ...Sylvie, a fourteen-year-old mother being pimped by her father ...Twins Larry and Francey, ten, scarcely human after an upbringing of savage and unimaginable cruelty ...One inspiring account of how one man got to know these wounded children and tried to give them hope - and a future.
In fifteen years as a child protection worker, Shane Dunphy saw children growing up in horrific situations. He also saw their amazing ability to survive those unpromising beginnings. Shane is now a tutor on childcare courses and a respected commentator on child protection issues.
