This is the Book That Should Never Have Had To Be Written Let Alone Experienced Every child and human being has a fundamental right to a life free from humiliation, fear and violence. Yet the World Health Organisation estimates that up to 40 million children are abused every year and according to Women's Aid, 1 in 3 women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime. In this shocking memoir, Cassie Moore gives a very open and honest description of how she suffered and survived a lifetime of abuse. She describes: * The sexual, physical and emotional abuse she suffered at the hands of her Stepfather and Mother, who then sold her into marriage at the age of 16 * The heartbreak she suffered when she naively left her 22 month old baby behind when she fled to London with the man she fell in love with, only to be abused by him for a further 23 years * The self-loathing, depression and despair she felt during those lonely years * The enormous sacrifices she had to make to save herself and start a new life "After reading 'Did You Hear Me Crying?' you will not ask why Cassie did not leave but rather where on earth did she find the strength and determination to survive? Her tenacity helped her rebuild her life after child abuse and 25 years of domestic violence. She shows us that it is never too late to speak up and that it is possible to move on and find love, happiness and joy in life." Margaret Martin, Director, Women's Aid. "An incredibly honest - heart-breaking account of a childhood blighted by neglect and abuse." Barnados Ireland
