Meet the Author

Maria Landon was a teenage prostitute with a drink and drugs habit when she became pregnant with her first child. The arrival of the baby changed everything and, having been through counselling to help deal with her past, she then began to teach personal development. Her aim is to help people who have been taught as children to think that they are worthless, a technique her father used to keep her in his power. She is now the mother of two sons aged 19 and 22.

    Very good

    Loved it. I felt really sorry for all the times her dad abused her.

    Wisdom well done

    This is a very well done book on how to deal with a subject a lot of
    people would have a hard time dealing with. Child incest is alive out there and we still seem to over look a lot of things. Maria has
    written a very sad but true story on this subject and you will find
    yourself unable to put this down. Really just a great in sight to the world a lot of us refuse to look at. Thanks for the great read.
