Jenny grew up in a house where no-one was safe. Born one of five children in the East End, her childhood was spent in squalor and terror. Her father's violent beatings, humiliations, and sexual abuse were part of daily life; her mother - also his sexual victim and savagely beaten - was no source of help.Deprived of love and all comforts, the children would turn to each other for support and to the only adult they could trust, Auntie.This is the story of how Jenny, her sister Kim and brother Laurence, not only survived but ultimately transcended the unimaginable degradations heaped on them. With the power of love, cunning, the blackest of black humour and an indestructible self-belief, Jenny eventually broke free of her past.

Silent Sisters

For years, Jenny and sister Kim suffered horrendous physical and sexual abuse at the hands of their father. They survived in part because of their closeness and their determination to be there for each other. Both sisters left home at the earliest opportunity to escape but before long, Jenny was embroiled in a relationship with an abusive man that kept her locked in a cycle of violence and fear. Their lives followed parallel paths, with first marriage, then kids and always the terror that things would never change. Eventually, with a lot of love, grit and courage they helped each other to climb out of the pit of despair and truly free themselves from the legacy of the past.Every bit as harrowing and inspiring as Behind Closed Doors, this is a story of the power of unstintingly loyal love.

Jenny Tomlin suffered horrendous neglect and physical and sexual abuse throughout her childhood at the hands of her father. This harrowing story is told in the number one bestseller Behind Closed Doors and the heartrending follow-up, Silent Sisters. Jenny has campaigned on behalf of fellow victims of abuse for charities Barnardo's and Refuge and she is a passionate believer in the absolute necessity of encouraging victims to speak out and others to listen to them and believe their stories. It is in this spirit that she has brought her own story together with other powerful, inspiring, horrifying and humbling tales of resilience, courage and sheer determination to escape victimhood and embrace a better future. These are the testimonies of Jenny's heroes.
