Daddy's Special Girls: Three Childhoods Torn Apart by Abuse

Daddy's Special Girls: Three Childhoods Torn Apart by Abuse (Paperback)

£7.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

A true story of abuse. Three sisters. A shattered Irish childhood.



Joyce, June and Paula Kavanagh were three sisters born to a family of ten in Ballyfermot, Dublin in the 1960s. Their father abused all three of them in the family home throughout their childhood. In 1989, the sisters made the brave decision to bring charges against their father and, in 1990, the state took a successful case against him. He was convicted and imprisoned.



Daddy's Special Girls is the story of their abuse; the exposure of a man prolific in his paedophilia; and an Irish childhood lost in a dysfunctional, abusive and torturous environment. Importantly, however, it is also the story of three women's healing; their coming to terms with their abuse, and their forgiveness of themselves and others.



The Kavanagh sisters have refused to allow their abuse to define them. With fierce humour, insight and honesty, they now share their story and show that with love and determination, you can indeed conquer all.
