Diane then said to her aunt and uncle, “Benny told us we are staying with you for a holiday.” Bet looked at Benny, who signalled for the girls to come to him. Looking at the two small girls, he swallowed hard. 

When he had their attention, he said grimly, “No girls, I have brought you here to live with Auntie Bet and Uncle Bertie, because if I had not taken you away, then they would have killed you.”

Diane frowned, “They? Who are they?”

Benny replied, “Your mum and dad.”

Benny explained that when he came to collect them, their mother said, “Take them, or I will kill them. I’ve had enough; I don’t want them in my sight.” Diane gasped and grabbed Jo’s hand.

This is the true story about two small girls who suffered neglect and appalling abuse at the hands of the people who should have been caring for them; their parents.

    I couldn't put this book down. It brought me to tears at some points with such an awful childhood these two young sisters had to live. I would definitely recommend this book. Thanks, Tracey Anne to share this truly heartbreaking story.

    A sad tale of neglect and abuse, it’s shocking what those children were subjected to by the very people meant to love and care for them.

  • Bethan Clark

    An excellent book, a detailed account of a truly awful childhood but full of hope and strength too.

  • Kathryn Wilson

    Great read! Such a sad beginning for these children, reading this story helped me with my decision to foster.

  • Jayne Threadgold

    I say binge-worthy as I read this book in one sitting while spending the day in the garden. I really enjoyed it too!.. In the sense of it was hard to put down as, reading about the disturbing upbringing of these two girls, had me gripped. I needed to know whether or not, they were eventually rewarded with a better and more peaceful life. Worth the read!
