by Julia Latchem-Smith

To the outside world Julia's family was a picture of respectability; middle-class, decent, loving. But between the ages of eight and thirteen Julia's father sexually abused her. While Julia's mother's obsessive domestic tendencies occupied her elsewhere, Julia's father concentrated his attentions on his daughter. When, eventually, Julia twice found the courage to reveal what was happening to her, her mother encouraged her to retract her allegations. Years later, after Julia had married and had two daughters, her father confessed - and Julia was able to record their conversation and press charges. Her father is currently serving eight years in prison. Julia no longer has a relationship with her mother and brother, but she has successfully rebuilt a new life for herself. This the dramatic story of how, by confronting her painful past, Julia has begun to build herself a successful future.

Julia Smith did a great job putting her story forward in this book. I bought this book not knowing what to expect from the writing, but Julia did a tremendous job and painting a picture so to speak of the ordeals she had to endure in her youth. I put this book down realizing that Julia is incredibly brave and a model to us all!
I was very pleased with this order. Not only did it come to me very quickly but it also was in very good shape. This is a book that I read 25+ years ago and didn't think I would ever have again.
Julia tried to tell people she was being sexually abused, but no one believed her. They branded her a liar. In the end, she had to take measures into her own hands and secretly recorded her father confessing to the abuse. Even then, after a few hours on the telephone to him, he never really admitted the abuse outright, but it was enough to get him convicted. He was an old man by that stage, but all Julia wanted was for him to admit what he did to her as a child was wrong. And this action Julia took against her father alienated her from her family. Sad story.
