AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'On the outside Renee McBryde's life sounds not too far from normal: she grew up with a single mother and her greatest support was her loving grandmother. She went to school, she played with friends. If you fill in the details, though, it was far from normal. Her mother was 16 when she had Renee, and she was single because Renee's father was in jail for killing two men who, despite what he told Renee, he had not killed in self-defence.

'Renee grew up believing that as the daughter of a double murderer, she didn't deserve much in the way of happiness - so instead she found misery at home and in her relationships. Now she is a survivor, not just of her childhood but of the abuse that marred her adult life.

'This is her sometimes shocking, often moving, inspirational true story.' (Publication summary)
