The Biography of Carol Glass. Born and raised in a deprived area on 1960’s Tyneside to a mother who didn’t want her, Carol spends her life searching for real love. She suffers serial abuse by her mother, siblings, a succession of boyfriends, husbands and even the establishment. Serially abused by her estranged father from an early age Carol turns to alcohol, prescription drug overdose and self harm as a means of escape. Struggling to recover from her addictions she shows a mix of dogged determination, humour and human frailty. When, following a physical assault, she vows to end her life she suddenly realises taking that action would mean that all her abusers would win. This realisation snaps her into a desperate struggle to quit her addictions before it is too late.show more
