Separated from her real mother at birth, Anya grew up in terror of her drunken bullying uncle. Still an interesting read and one that I would recommend.
February 23, at 6: March 3, at 7: The only person she could trust was the woman she called ‘Mummy’. This book is disturbing on many levels, perhaps the biggest one being that the aunt allows the abuser to move back into the home with children still living there and the author asks to move back in as well.

Abandoned by Anya Peters
The first half of Abandoned was…well, shocking and heartbreaking. I had run out of money and luck and just about out of hope. Overall it was a very good book and definantly pulls on the heart strings. Refresh and try again. Her aunt, who she called Mummy, was the only person- and I do mean the ONLY person- in her young life to show her any love. Tout le meilleur pour vous. It was well written and her sadness and wanting to belong grabs you from its pages.
We would all respond differently…. She used interesting words and phrases that were interesting and worked with the plot. People baring all of their difficult childhoods and how they became better people. Anya Peters is a really good writer though. I just finished your book, Abandoned.
She also hopes that her Mummy and Kathy might also find a place in her life, she also plans to open up herself to Brendan. Anya Peters Wanderingscribe Skip to content.
Child abuse is a really sensitive issue and I feel it should be handled very carefully. All her terrible secrets came pouring out. It was sometimes unbelievable how your family have reacted day to day.
Its truly a wonder that a child survived through all this! I thought it dragged out the part of her sleeping in the car and dragged it out way to long. As I said, Im only about half way through, so hoping it takes an upward swing for you from here on, though of course, what you have been through is damaging for life.
After all you have been through you have kept fighting, and I admire you for that. It was so sad!! When her brothers started calling her a ‘whore’, Anya cracked and all her terrible secrets came pouring out. I also like to write, as I have so much to express.

I’ve been reading a few books about abuse lately and you think that nothing else can shock you. I found it a little difficult to keep track of all of the different people mentioned but maybe that’s just me.
