Stuart just wanted his father to love him, but he was made to believe he was too naughty to be loved. Finally David Howarth was sent to prison for abusing Stuart's young sisters. Nobody knew the truth about Stuart's abuse until one fateful day when his father tried it again and Stuart fought back in the only way he knew how.Stuart Howarth spent the first thirty years of his life in mental and physical hell. After years of emotional torment and despair, at the age of 32 Stuart felt an overwhelming urge to see his father (who he now knows was actually his stepfather), then living in Wales. Seeking reconciliation, Stuart was only to be met by the same old abusive man. The rage, pain and confusion boiled over in Stuart and he fought back, killing his stepfather.When Stuart's story came to light in the courtroom, it was so terrible that he received the minimum possible sentence for his crime and only served thirteen months in Strangeways prison in Manchester. But while in prison, the cruel system compounded the crimes of his evil abuser, and he suffered at the hands of the prison guards. What happened to him during those months led to him suing the Home Office and Strangeways on his release and winning his case.This is the story of a sweet-natured boy who grew into a brave young man and refused to allow himself to be a victim any longer.
Stuart lives in Manchester with his wife Tracey. He has two children, Matthew and Rebecca, whom he loves dearly. He is continually improving the quality of his life whilst assisting others in recovering from past traumas and addiction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Please, daddy, no: a boy betrayed. Such a sad eye opener as to how a young innocent life can be stolen and to impact on an entire lifetime. Even a glimpse into prison life is quite shocking. For Stuart to have survived such horrors from childhood to adulthood is indeed a miracle.
