Peter was just a toddler when his mother died tragically, having tried to abort a child that they simply couldn't look after. In rural Gloucesteshire in the early 1940s, Peter's family lived in poverty. It wasn't long before his father introduced a new woman into their lives, his mistress Flossie. On meeting her, Peter made a mistake- he called her 'Mummy'. Dragged outside, trampled on and shouted at, Peter never made that mistake again. Thus began a childhood of terrible abuse from which Peter tried time and again to run away. The arrival of a new sister, who was treated like a princess, only served to intensify the harm towards Peter. After running away one time too many, Flossie pulled Peter into the bedroom that he shared with his brothers and sister and committed an act of unimaginable evil. It didn't end there though - the catalogue of cruelties continued until, finally, Peter was able to escape for good. In this, his heartbreaking yet profoundly moving and utimatley uplifting memoir, Peter recounts a childhood like no other and a stepmother from hell.
