Children Betrayed Innocence Lost - And How Two Women Risked Everything to Save Them by Shy Keenan, Sara Payne

Shy Keenan and Sara Payne met because their lives had been connected by the same evil. Shy finally won justice in a court of law over the abuse she suffered at the hands of her stepfather, and Sara was grieving for her little girl Sarah, killed by paedophile Roy Whiting.The two women discovered that not only were they kindred spirits but that together, they made a formidable team in the fight for child protection. Inundated by requests for help, the stories heard were heartbreaking. But Shy and Sara found the strength to fight for justice and to protect children everywhere.Where Angels Fear is the story of these two incredibly brave and determined women helping to piece shattered lives together.

The Sunday Times For Broken :

'Beaten, left for dead and raped from the age of four, but now a national campaigner - Shy Keenan, we salute you.'
Eve magazine

'I found Broken very painful (in fact, I remain haunted by its contents). Shy is trying hard to make the world a safer place for my children.'
