“The best book I have ever read”
Amazon reader review
As a child, Victoria Spry was brutally beaten, neglected and starved by the woman she called Mummy.
To the outside world Eunice Spry was a devoted parent, but behind closed doors she was an evil tyrant. Instead of protecting, loving and caring for Victoria, she forced bleach and urine down her throat, knocked out her teeth, tied her up naked and made her live in squalor. It took eighteen years of heartache and despair before she found the courage to expose her mum.
Tortured is Victoria’s gripping story of survival.
“I have given this book 5 stars because it has been written so beautifully and so honestly... As Victoria 's journey progressed I felt like I was there with her, such was the passion of her words.”
“Purchased this book this morning and have honestly not put it down... I read a lot of similar type books, but none, and I mean none, have ever had me sobbing the way I am at the moment! Truly gripping but even more heartbreaking! I normally manage to detach myself to the point most stories I read feel [like] fiction. Not this one! You can feel the pain.”
“Words cannot express how powerful Victoria’s story was. I found it very upsetting to read... I cannot believe how she survived the terrible abuse by her adoptive mother. If you can brace yourself to read this incredible story it will live with you for weeks. Get your tissues ready.”
“Incredible insight into child abuse. This book made me cry angry tears of frustration... The inadequacies of the social and welfare system exposed and human values explored. A very explicit read with a strong message. One of the most powerful books I have ever read.”
“Horrific story of abuse. Fantastically written... Couldn’t put it down.”
“Wow. Heartbreaking and powerful in equal measure... brilliantly written.”
“Such an amazing read! The author had me hooked and heartbroken all at the same time. Definitely worth a read especially if you are into true stories.”
“This girl is just amazing and this book has been the best book I have ever read. It will stay with you for ages. Nothing more I can say. Read it.”
