In this powerful and honest memoir Laurie Matthew takes the reader with her as she revisits her childhood in 1950s and 1960s Dundee. Raised in a home which consisted of an emotionally neglectful and physically violent mother a distant father a chronically sick brother and a sister she needed to protect the only ray of light in little Lauries life came from the man who would return home from the Army with pockets full of sweets and bags of toys. Uncle Andrew would shower her with attention and love capture the hearts of everyone around him - and carefully groom her for years of abuse by not only himself but also by a network of paedophiles. Laurie tells a harrowing story of isolation as her abusers went to extraordinary lengths to carry out their sick acts wearing masks to confuse and torment her and keeping her away from other children. But these evil men had no idea that the girl they systematically violated would turn into one of the countrys leading child protection experts and that their legacy would give her the impetus to change the lives of so many innocent victims.
