About this title:

Synopsis: This is the story of a boy growing up in Nottingham, England during the war years, where the terror of German bombing raids could not compare to the emotional and physical trauma inflicted upon him from a Yank, training in England to liberate Europe from the Nazis. In light of sexual scandals that challenge our modern moral attitudes regarding the psychiatric disorder of pedophilia, this is a well documented story of what could and did happen in an era where such deviant behavior was misunderstood, and where lack of appropriate supervision overshadowed intervention that might have rescued him from his abuser. Although the memories are devastating, yet everlasting, it is also a story of the power of prayer over evil, wherein this child sought and eventually found a sanctuary to which to escape, the religious life of a Christian Brother. However, even religious life is fraught with its own perils, yet it presented a new pathway to achieving his then unrealized potential. John Adkin, even after enduring years of abhorrent criminal, mental and physical abuse, was somehow still able to achieve academic and professional success, armed only with a strong sense of self-preservation and motivation to persevere, with the Blessed Mother Mary continuing to provide him with guiding light to a strong and happy life.
