Description

Please, Daddy, No Stuart just wanted his father to love him, but he was made to believe he was too naughty to be loved. Finally David Howarth was sent to prison for abusing Stuart's young sisters. Nobody knew the truth about Stuart's abuse until one fateful day when his father tried it again and Stuart fought back in the only way he knew how.

Stuart Howarth spent the first thirty years of his life in mental and physical hell. After years of emotional torment and despair, at the age of 32 Stuart felt an overwhelming urge to see his father (who he now knows was actually his stepfather), then living in Wales. Seeking reconciliation, Stuart was only to be met by the same old abusive man. The rage, pain and confusion boiled over in Stuart and he fought back, killing his stepfather.

When Stuart's story came to light in the courtroom, it was so terrible that he received the minimum possible sentence for his crime and only served thirteen months in Strangeways prison in Manchester. But while in prison, the cruel system compounded the crimes of his evil abuser, and he suffered at the hands of the prison guards. What happened to him during those months led to him suing the Home Office and Strangeways on his release and winning his case.

This is the story of a sweet-natured boy who grew into a brave young man and refused to allow himself to be a victim any longer.

    What a courageous man to tell his story so honestly and openly. What terrible people he encountered in his life, so glad he found the strength to fight the system that let him down all his life. God bless you!

    Firstly I want to thank Stuart for the insight into his very difficult child hood. I found myself almost crying reading certain parts. A must read!!!! This will help you to understand just what some children go through and can explain why some people are the way they are in adult life. I even thanked Stuart via twitter and have since found he has terminal cancer and is now helping fellow suffers. Truly amazing person.

    Like most people I was fortunate to be raised in a loving family environment. Stuart's story seems beyond belief at times but sadly, it's all true. Buy this book and prepare to be shocked and moved.
