9780340933497: Mummy's Witness: My Mother the Victim, My Father the Killer

Gayle Sanders grew up in a middle-class household in an ordinary seaside town. But everything was not as it seemed. Her father viciously abused her mother and Gayle retreated into herself. The violence escalated and she witnessed horrifying scenes, including when her father almost broke her mother's back in a beating. Her parents eventually separated and after an acrimonious custody battle, Gayle thought she was finally safe. But joy and relief twisted to terror as she witnessed her mother's horrific death by hanging at the hands of her father. But her ordeal didn't end there. After years of being shuttled from foster families to psychiatric units, Gayle had no one to turn to. At her most vulnerable, following one of many suicide attempts, she was attacked and raped by a male nurse. Yet Gayle survived to make a better life for herself. This is her heartbreaking and inspiring story.
