The harrowing and truly shocking story of a young girl whose stepfather abused her.
"Over and over again he warned me he would kill me if I told anyone. I was completely isolated. He made sure of that."
Mary was a shy 10-year-old girl when she was first introduced to her new dad, Sean. From the very beginning he seemed to pay her special attention; praise for good behaviour, compliments about her clothes, help with school work. Mary trusted him. Why wouldn't she? He was an adult, her mother was an alcoholic and Sean was there to protect her. Then he started touching her and when she turned 12, he raped her. Threatened, frightened and alone, Sean continued to abuse Mary and fathered four of her children, the first when she was 16 years old. Then finally, after 20 years of abuse, a struggle with social services, counselling and an encounter with her now husband Mark, Mary found the courage to escape her abuser for good and reclaim her life.
