Description
Information
'Abandoned' is the true story of a childhood full of secrets, abuse and a little girl who didn't belong. This heartbreaking story is about how one woman finally overcame her traumatic childhood and adult homelessness to find a place she could call home.

Born illegitimately to Irish lovers, Anya was given away by her real mother and brought up in England by her loving aunt. However, her childhood with her new family was far from happy -- verbally and sexually abused for years, Anya finally cracked. She was only 11 years old.

Then, a few weeks after her violent uncle was taken away by the police for questioning, Anya lost her whole family overnight. They didn't die, although the might as well have done; they just went away, abandoning her. There was no one else to care, so Anya pretended that she didn't either. She learnt to shut down, and not to let anybody in.

She thought she had worked through it all, overcome it. but then, several years later, through a series of unrelated problems, her life imploded again. Several things ended together: a job, a relationship, money, luck -- and she ended up homeless and living in her car in a laneway at the edge of the woods.
