She saw – and heard everything

but never said a word …

… until now

For the first seventeen years of her life, Yvonne was raised in an abusive, amoral and unloving environment, brought up by her grandparents and her grandfather’s “live in” mistress, in a rural public house in 1950s Essex.

Somehow she survived but was emotionally scarred for life...

Her first problem was that she was born a girl - and her misogynist mother had wanted a boy. Life went downhill from there...

The story winds through Yvonne’s childhood, contrasting the simple pleasures of post war rural life with the darkness of living in her grandfather’s pub.

Events, some even life-threatening, are described with absolute honesty, almost total recall, and in some places, even humour, but the darkness is always there.

Escape came at the age of seventeen, but not in the way that Yvonne had hoped for or dreamed about...

Yvonne now lives in rural Fife with her husband and cats.
