Daddy’s Little Girl
Author: Julia Latchem-Smith
Publisher: Headline Review, 304 pages

THE author’s father started sexually abusing her when she was eight and continued until she was 13. Julia was terrified that revealing the truth would tear her family apart. Most of all, she was terrified of what it would do to her mother whose obsessive compulsive tendencies caused her to neglect Julia.

Indeed, when Julia finally found the courage to speak up about the abuse, her mother urged her to retract her statements. But years later, her father confessed, was charged and sentenced to eight years in prison. Now, although estranged from her mother and brother, Julia is a wife and mother and able to rebuild her life and look to the future with hope.
