THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER

When a fancy car pulls up outside six-year-old Marie's home in Oldham, in 1959, she is told she is going on holiday...

In fact, she is taken to live in a convent, overseen by a cruel and sadistic nun.

There, a horrific ritual of physical, sexual and mental abuse begins.

Marie feels unable to share details of her suffering with anyone. Until years later, when a police investigation is launched, and she realises that the time has finally come to tell the truth...
