"We were swill. We weren't even piglets. We were the foul slop that farmers feed to pigs, animals that will eat absolutely anything. Did he hate us so much that only the foulest image would do?" 

Cora Coleman was born into a house of violence and fear in a small town in Ireland. Her disturbed father constantly beat her mother, and treated their seven children with contempt and obscenity. Their lives revolved around his moods. 

It was no surprise that when Cora grew up the cycle continued, as she went through a series of abusive relationships. Her personal hell culminated when she left her violent partner in Canada and went to stay first in a women's refuge with her young son, Luke, finally finding peace when she was taken in by a group of nuns. From there, her slow road to recovery began. 

Cora Coleman's poignant, harrowing memoir shows that even "swill" can grow and into a confident, whole, peaceful human being.
