Told from the perspective of frightened five-year-old Maxine and her adult self.

Maxine believed that she had dealt with the sexual abuse and cruelty that she suffered at the hands of her parents by blocking it all out.

Taking part in a programme designed to identify the signs that a child is being abused opened a Pandora’s box of horrifying memories that highjacked her mind, causing her to lose her grip on her mind, her sanity, and ultimately her life.

Through Five Year Old Eyes is Kate Barnham’s first novel. She started writing during lockdown and has barely paused for breath since. When Kate isn’t writing, she is herding eight cats – two of her own Dolly and Lola and six kittens that Lola produced after spending Valentines Weekend out on the tiles. Counting words has been replaced with counting kittens for the time being. She lives in Reading Berkshire, her adopted hometown and is immensely proud to call it her home. In her spare time, she reads avidly and plays computer games.

    Everyone needs to read this book.
    It’s dark, brutal, honest and sad - but most importantly, it’s a story of love, hope and survival.
    This story shows the true effects of child sex abuse and how it can affect your adult life if you don’t get the professional help you need. I’m so glad that Kate got the help she needed, and I can’t wait for her next book!

    After reading this book I thought the author has made an excellent job of making people aware of this very strong and sensitive subject, the descriptive content is first class It's not for the faint-hearted that's for sure, but definitely, a must-read book I highly recommend that you acquire a copy, because it's a great effort from this debut author, and I hope she has further success in years to come!
