Tell No One

Overview

When I look in the mirror now I don't see the terrified child who was systematically abused, both mentally and physically. If you passed me in the street, you wouldn't notice either. You might see the small scar on my neck that was inflicted by a knife being pressed to my throat. You might notice a lump on my left wrist where the bones didn't heal properly after it was fractured.

Overview

When I look in the mirror now I don't see the terrified child who was systematically abused, both mentally and physically. If you passed me in the street, you wouldn't notice either. You might see the small scar on my neck that was inflicted by a knife being pressed to my throat. You might notice a lump on my left wrist where the bones didn't heal properly after it was fractured. You might notice small scars on my arms where I was used as a live ashtray. But you won't see the scars that are deep inside me - the ones which take a lifetime to heal. They're ingrained in me, trapped under the surface like fish under a frozen lake, waiting for the moment when the surface cracks and they can come to life again. These mental scars are the demons that haunted me when I was at my lowest point. They came out to torment me, rearing their ugly head in the darkness. Then they would retreat again for a time, making me think I'd got over what happened to me, only to show up when I least expected it. But with every year that passed, I learnt how to handle the demons more. Every sick and twisted thing that happened in my childhood has made me into the woman I am today. I'm a survivor.

My name is Sarah and this is my story...

    I highly recommend this book -- I read it in one afternoon and evening..
    This book will have you in tears (most likely more than once).  Sarah Cooper recounts her childhood with heartbreaking detail.
    Thanks to this book, I didn't feel so all alone, and could actually relate to someone at least during the time I was reading this.
    Unfortunately, this kind of abuse goes on behind closed doors more than anyone wants to believe.
    Thank you Sarah for opening yourself up and your painful honestly.  I know it could not have been easy reliving it but I'm sure it will help many.
    I highly recommend this book to anyone who suffered any kind of abuse as a child -- and to ALL others so they will recognize
    the signs in any child being abused so they can offer some help.

    This book will have you in tears.

    These kind of abuse books are very sad and desturbing. Anyone who has been abused as a child will be able to relate to the abuse that went on in this house. Sad, sad, sad.
