Mary was a shy ten-year-old when her new dad, Sean, came into her life. From the very beginning he seemed to pay her special attention - praise for good behaviour, compliments about her clothes, help with school work. Mary trusted him. Then he started touching her. When she was twelve, he raped her. Sean continued to abuse Mary for twenty years and fathered five of her children. But then, finally, after years of abuse, Mary found the courage to escape him for good - and reclaim her life. 'Nobody Will Believe You' is Mary's personal and very brave story.
