What I’m currently reading, no going home, by Toni Maguire

I started a great book today! Its called, no going home, and its by Toni Maguire!

I read six chapters already, and I’m totally hooked!

Here is a book description…


From number one best-selling author Toni Maguire comes a new true story of abuse and survival.

‘This is my story, though our personal stories are not ours alone, are they? Small children have no say in the direction their lives take. Even before they have learnt to walk and talk, they are trained to obey the demands of those charged with their care.’

Daisy-May Jones was four years old when she was told by her parents the family was moving halfway across the world to Australia for a better life. Leaving everything behind, including her beloved grandparents, Daisy-May spent a happy and secure few years adapting to a new life. But after the breakdown of her parent’s marriage, she stepped into a nightmare as her mother introduced a new step-father to her and her disabled brother.

What followed was years of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. Obsessed with manipulating Daisy-May and her sexual education, her step-father continued to abuse her until she was 15 years old. All alone in 150 acres of wilderness, Daisy’s only wish was to return home to her grandparent’s and their love. Eventually, she managed to do so and now works in mental health, supporting others who have been sexually abused and helping them plan their way forward.

I got this book on audible!

Cant wait to read more of it!
