Summary expansion
The words came from his mouth, "Don't say anything about this to your mum. She won't believe you." At the age of 11, a beautiful happy girl found herself thrust into a nightmare of abuse and violation that ripped her world apart. At the mercy of three men, she endured a four-year ordeal of sexual exploitation and degradation before eventually finding the strength to say "no more." Confusion and shame made her keep her secret for 16 years. This is her remarkable story. Sarah has endured what no child should. Subjected to extreme abuse from a family "friend," she turned to her father only to experience the same treatment from him. Utterly devastated, Sarah even stared to wonder if she was somehow to blame for this most unforgivable of betrayals and was driven to attempted suicide-a life was nearly destroyed by the selfishness of three deeply troubled and wicked men. A survivor who has some how found salvation, Sarah's experiences bear testament to the enduring strength of the human spirit in the most unthinkable of situations. Sarah's Story shows how love and courage eventually enabled an astonishing individual triumph over a childhood stolen by the evil of others
