The number one bestselling, heartbreaking childhood memoir of abuse and true story of the triumph of the human spirit.
Jenny Tomlin educated herself to A level standard and started writing a few years ago. She is now happily married and living in France. Her most fulfilling roles have been as loving wife to Alan and mother to her children - celebrated actress Martine McCutcheon and her son LJ - giving them the stability and love she never received herself.
'This woman is an inspiration and I am honoured to call her my mum' -- Martine McCutcheon 'I'm really proud of Jenny. She has put into words our terrible start in life and made me look openly at who I was and how far I have come. We managed to break free and build a life for oursleves. Now it's time to stop covering the subject in shame.' -- Kim Challoner, Jenny's sister
