We would love to read your reviews once you have completed the book Surviving Childhood.
In order to do so, simply complete the form below and it will be added to the page:
A heartfelt account of what abuse does to children and an account of how they try to survive trauma usually inflicted by adults who were themselves abused or who are living such daily psycho dramas that they themselves cannot cope with their own minds and flay out at their children, endangering and destroying life, hope and happiness.
For anyone who believes that the UK is a country of great opportunity, look carefully at this novel and don’t overlook the fact that the divide between rich and poor is greater today than in the past just as schooling of the sort described is by no means a thing of the past. Good to recall, too, that the authorities, the good authorities, are seldom present when abuse, bullying and molestation occur in primary and secondary schools.
Follow the story of a family living in Bristol, UK, the suffering of the children is appalling yet they come through the other side to become successful adults.
Definitely worth reading.

This is a really hard hitting book on a subject that has been hidden for so long. We think that child abuse is a product of modern day living, no, it is a subject that was hidden for many years. Caroline Webber has written from the perspective of a family of siblings, but primarily the two eldest, a son and a daughter. I had a relatively sheltered upbringing and reading of the pain and lack of love made me both angry and unsettled. Even knowing what the subject matter was about I could not put this book down. I wondered how much of this is really fiction as it is so well researched. As a first novel, this is a cracker.

Really gripped me from the start, a well written, emotional and hard hitting book about the realities of childhood abuse.

Harrowing yet gripping. A real page turner, a book I couldn’t put down until I had finished. My eyes were opened to an area of suffering I am fortunate not to have experienced. Left me grateful for my own happy childhood. A keeper.

This book made me laugh and also cry as it was about my family and also brought back so many memories of my childhood.
