Description:
Growing up in a deeply troubled family, 15-year-old Anna felt lost and alone in the world. So when a friendly taxi driver befriended her at the taxi-rank she helped out at, Anna welcomed the attention. She agreed to go home with him to meet his family. She wouldn't be able to escape for 13 years. Held captive by a sadistic paedophile, with the full acceptance of his family, Anna was subjected to despicable levels of sexual abuse and torture. Completely shut off from the outside world, she was broken physically and mentally by unrelenting violence and degradation. The darkest moments resulted in numerous miscarriages, and the birth of four babies - each one Anna has never seen since birth. Her salvation arrived 13 years late, but despite her shattered mind and body, Anna managed to flee. This is her harrowing, yet uplifting story, of survival.
