In her first book, Never a Hero to Me, Tracy Black told the horrific story of how her father, a respected Army man, was in fact a heartless paedophile who convinced Tracy that her mother's health was completely dependent on her willingness to be abused. In her new book, Tracy continues her shocking story by telling how her mother closed her eyes to the cruelty, treating her little girl with cold indifference. Heartbreakingly Tracy traded her innocence for the love of her mother - love which was never given, no matter how much she suffered. As Tracy approached adulthood, she risked being trapped in damaging sexual relationships. But after years of struggle she found the courage to break out of her past and turn her life around.
Tracy Black is the psuedonym of a British woman in her forties who now lives southern Europe with her partner. A mother of two and a successful businesswoman, she recently graduated from university. She has wanted for years to tell her story of survival and will always fight for the victims of abuse.
