Synopsis

No little girl could have been safer. Emily Christie grew up surrounded by relatives whose job it was to protect her. Her father was a hard-working policeman, her grandad was a respected paramedic; they were the perfect family. Or so it seemed. Evil lurked beneath the surface. When she was just five years old, Emily's beloved grandad started grooming her, calling her his 'special little girl'. In the years that followed she was subjected to countless unforgivable acts of sexual abuse at his hands, that escalated in severity and threatened to tear her life apart. Knowing her grandad was considered to be a pillar of the community, Emily was too scared to tell the truth. But one day she found the courage to stop the abuse and the strength to start rebuilding her life. No Safe Place is the inspirational story of a little girl's journey from helpless victim to triumphant survivor.

Emily Christie has campaigned for justice for sexual abuse victims and gained the qualifications she was too traumatized to work for when she was at school. Now thirty-one, Emily still has physical injuries from her childhood, and is unable to work, but she is happy to be a stay-at-home mum with her beautiful daughter, Sophie. She lives in Scotland.
