Sample Book Insights: #1 I had no idea why there was so much fighting over me, but as long as I could be with my dad, I was fine. When we began to stay at my dad’s friend Marie’s house instead of with my mom, I was even happier. #2 When I was four, my father took me to work with him one day, but my mother got hold of me and took me home with her. She punished me by burning my hand with a hot iron. I was never allowed to see my father again. #3 I was brought up by my father, who was extremely strict. I remember the times I visited my grandmother’s house with my older brothers, and how everything was forbidden and punishable. The seeds of violence that were later to grow in my mother were sown during the beatings she received from her own mother. #4 Lesley began to drink heavily after the divorce, and she soon became a prisoner in her own home. She was an avid pub drinker and partygoer. She was still a young woman in her early twenties, and she craved a bit of fun.
