'Living in my imagination is how, from the age of four to seventeen, I survived the constant and brutal abuse my stepfather inflicted on me.' For thirteen cruel and terrifying years, Sharon McGovern suffered horrific abuse at the hands of her stepfather. Molested and beaten, she was forced to keep a dirty and confusing secret that robbed her of her childhood and her innocence. Years later, in a step of exceptional bravery, she confronted him in court. Afraid is the profoundly moving story of a little girl's ordeal, and a woman's fight to put away a dangerous predator. It is an unforgettable and inspiring account of good versus evil, of facing a monster and finding the strength to survive.
