Description

When Rose was warned by her mother to keep away from men who hid behind bushes and did unspeakable things to children, she was very careful to check behind every bush. But when her parents encouraged her to go on frequent trips with family friend, Uncle George, that was different - wasn't it? Rose loved to be filmed dancing - until he showed her the film, which looked rude. Suddenly Uncle George was asking what Mummy would say if she saw it. He said he'd keep it secret, as long as Rose did everything he expected...and as his demands grew, so Rose was plunged into a terrifying and painful world. Only when she reached mid-life, and with support, was she able to face what had happened in order to find hope for the future. Written almost entirely from the child's perspective, this remarkable true story gives unique insight into how abusers gain control of children and their families - and why children often cannot speak up.show more
