9780007236398: Please, Daddy, No: A Boy Betrayed

Stuart just wanted his father to love him, but he was made to believe he was too naughty to be loved. Finally David Howarth was sent to prison for abusing Stuart's young sisters. Nobody knew the truth about Stuart's abuse until one fateful day when his father tried it again and Stuart fought back in the only way he knew how.

Stuart Howarth spent the first thirty years of his life in mental and physical hell. After years of emotional torment and despair, at the age of 32 Stuart felt an overwhelming urge to see his father (who he now knows was actually his stepfather), then living in Wales. Seeking reconciliation, Stuart was only to be met by the same old abusive man. The rage, pain and confusion boiled over in Stuart and he fought back, killing his stepfather.

When Stuart's story came to light in the courtroom, it was so terrible that he received the minimum possible sentence for his crime and only served thirteen months in Strangeways prison in Manchester. But while in prison, the cruel system compounded the crimes of his evil abuser, and he suffered at the hands of the prison guards. What happened to him during those months led to him suing the Home Office and Strangeways on his release and winning his case.

This is the story of a sweet-natured boy who grew into a brave young man and refused to allow himself to be a victim any longer.

Review:

‘Truly moving.’ Fern Britten, This Morning

From the Author:

Child Abuse has become a part of everyday life because we
choose to ignore it - it is too nasty to even consider that it happens.

The truth is, it happens and in order to learn we must first of all listen
to survivors stories. Not only will it educate society, it will heal the
survivor.

Every mother and father has a duty to protect and educate their children so
that they can feel safe in todays world.

Survivors - every day we are sad, down, lonely, shameful, guilty, depressed
or suicidal - the abuser wins!

Break free look forward not back and be sure in your heart that you are
never alone.

My love, thoughts and prayers are with the still suffering and may your God
be with you x
