A heart rending account of one woman's survival in the face of unimaginable domestic violence.

About the Author

Dinah O'Dowd was born and raised in Dublin. In 1959, at the age of 19, she escaped the suffocating atmosphere of Ireland, leaving her first born behind. It was at the pub she worked at in Woolwich that she met her future husband, Gerry O'Dowd. Over the years Dinah suffered repeated physical assault and prolonged mental torture, yet successfully bore and raised six children, one of whom became a world superstar - Boy George. In 2001 Dinah and Gerry finally divorced, after 42 years together. Dinah now lives alone in South East London.
