Product Details
Sharon suffered continual physical and sexual abuse from her stepfather for seven years. Unfortunately, no one would listen to her or believe her story. At age 16, she finally finds the courage to flee from her tormenters. Social Services find her the first of a string of temporary jobs between which she criss-crosses England trying to find a safe haven.

However, she cannot escape her "night devil" completely until she comes to terms with her past. Sharon's growth and recovery from abuse and learning to accept love would be a long road to travel, taking nearly forty years to achieve. She had to learn to trust and love herself before she could another.

Faced with society's judgments against her, Sharon stood
alone against the people who abused her for seven years. The truth is, we don't start to heal when taken from an abusive situation; we only start to digest and relive its emotional content. Many go on to live their lives with tortured souls and an inability to trust and love their own children.

Equally, many of us find the inner child that God intended; we pull that
child past the empty adult left by years of mutilation of our childhood
souls. I was a no-hoper, unjustly cast out into a world of desolation and
loneliness that pulled at my heart like a lead weight. I self-harmed and
mutilated parts of my mind and body to try and erase memories.

Eventually, I learned that healing was within me and could never be found
under that largest or smallest boulder. I have walked the road of hope and
desire and looked into the pool of my future. I did not want to be the mother
they had raised, or the wife they had created. Slowly, I started to rebuild
my life and my wish is that this book offers the same hope to you.


Therapists' Acclaim for Surviving a House Full of Whispers


"This is the story of one girl's fear and battle to survive
the emotional traumas and deprivation of her past.
I can thoroughly recommend this book which will help
anyone who is, or has, suffered abuse."

--Lynda Bevan, author Life After Betrayal


"A very honest account, and a very accurate view of
the feelings, thoughts and behaviors of people traumatized
in childhood and youth. If you suffered in childhood,
or are in a helping position to those who have,
then you must read this book."

--Robert Rich, PhD, author Cancer: A Personal Challenge
