'You'd tell me if Daddy touched your private parts, wouldn't you, Carolina?' 'No,' said Carolina firmly. 'Why not, honey?' 'Because it's a secret.' It is only when long-buried memories from her own childhood start to surface that Ellen realises the terrible truth about her two young daughters: Carolina and Amy are being sexually abused by their father. Ellen writes with unflinching honesty about the heartbreak of finding out her daughters were abused, her fears of losing custody and her fight to have her story believed by sceptical doctors and social workers. A harrowing true story of sexual abuse from a mother's point of view, No More Hurt is a deeply affecting chronicle of Ellen's hard-won battle to create a place of safety and love for herself and her daughters.

About the Author:

Ellen Prescott is the pseudonym of an award-winning writer who has also worked as a resource person in the field of child sexual abuse.

Review:

"A true story about Ellen's discovery that her daughters were being sexually abused by their father. There are no arrests, no happy endings and no one gets "healed". Instead, it's a painful account of how the children are harmed and how communities respond to such accusations. At a time when so much focus is on convictions and criminals, I found this a moving reminder that the reality of these situations is much more complex" -- Ros Coward * Observer * "Ellen Prescott writes with a literary flair that adds to the power of her story. She hits the reader in the gut on page 1: "In 1982, when my daughters were four and one, I decided to kill them . . . I was so in love with them, there at the door of their bedroom, that all I could think of was murder." You'd have to be anesthetized to put the book down at this point" * Toronto Star * "I recommend it to anyone, including most physicians who need a better understanding of human responses to suffering" -- Willard Edwin Smith, BSc, MD, FRCP "Well paced and at times excruciatingly well written" * Quill and Quire * "This is a grip-ping story which I read from start to fin-ish at one sitting" * Geist *
