A very sad story about the far reaching consequences of abuse. Not only did the author suffer at the hands of her cousin but her beloved brother was also badly affected by his childhood that he turned to alcohol which led to a tragic turn of events. Again this is a book which describes a terrible childhood but has a feeling of hope as the author comes to terms with the past.

Synopsis

Destroyed by Jayne Sterne

When eight-year-old Jayne returned to England from bomb-torn Northern Ireland, her family stayed with relatives and a distant cousin began a campaign of abuse so horrifying that her world was shattered forever. When the family moved again, Jayne thought the nightmare was over. She was wrong. Her cousin came too. And, as her parents had to work nights, Jayne's abuser became her 'carer'. Raped repeatedly by him, beaten, abused and battered, Jayne's life was a living hell. One thing kept Jayne sane: the love and care of her older brother, Stuart. But he had demons of his own, and Jayne watched in helpless despair as the boy who had always protected her turned into an adult consumed by rage. Out of control and on the edge, Stuart went on to commit one of the most terrible crimes of recent years! DESTROYED is the heart-stopping tale of an innocence destroyed and a family torn apart -- told by a woman who has finally managed to confront her harrowing past.

As for why I'd recommend Lovereading, it's simple - it's a great place to get information and reviews about new books!

Margaret Freeman

Emily Wright

Lovereading takes the guesswork out of finding your next read with "if you like you'll love" and extracts to help with your decision.

Sarah Bruch

It gives a chance to read about new titles, invites comments from all kinds of readers and is run by such a nice bunch of book lovers.

Joy Bosworth

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.

Sue Burton

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

Jen Rainbow

Love Reading - it not only does what it says on the tin, it does it with Jam on!!

Maz Tucker
