My Side of the Story: My Perspective and My Truth Paperback
Author Emetaron Tata Abuah, now in her forties is ready to tell the story of her difficult and unhappy childhood.
She was one of six children of Nigerian parents; her father was a successful diplomat who became Nigerian Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland. Her parents' marriage was unhappy and abusive, with her cold and violent father having numerous affairs.
After living in luxurious surroundings in London, Tokyo and New York, when her parents finally split up she found herself living with her mother in poverty in Onitsha, Nigeria. Spells in Kenya and England at boarding schools did little to improve Emetaron's life, which was blighted by physical and sexual abuse at the hands of both family members and people to whom she turned for help and advice. 'My Side of the Story, My Perspective and My Truth' is a powerful but harrowing account of Emetaron's early life and her struggle to break free of the cycle of abuse to build a secure life for herself.
