Survivor : From childhood abuse to a life of crime and prostitution Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Victim. Prostitute. Gangster's Wife. Survivor. Tara grew up in squalor on the island of Alderney.

When she was only four, she was sexually abused by one of her mother's many lovers, a horror that continued for five long years.

As a teenager, desperate to escape the toxic environment at home, she fled to London - but was swiftly drawn into working as a prostitute.

She became involved with some of London's most notorious gangsters - even marrying one - but when she realised the danger she was inflicting on her children, she knew she had to find a way to get out.

This is the inspiring story of one woman's will to survive, and to fight for a better life.
