    Description
    Information
    'Little Lady' he called her over the few months he groomed her. Less than twelve months later she was caught in a trap of fear - if she talked she would be punished. With no one to turn to she kept 'their secret'. At thirteen she fell pregnant.

    Still too frightened to speak out she refused to tell the social workers who the father was. Without family support the teenager gave birth to a daughter in the unmarried mother's home.

    Six weeks later the baby she had already grown to love was taken away for adoption. Marianne returned home‚ but the neighbour's abuse continued and a year later she was pregnant again.

    This time her father literally tried to beat the baby out of her but she failed to miscarry. Scared for her life and that of her baby's she ran away from home carrying only a plastic bag stuffed with her few possessions.

    Marianne who still missed her first child desperately struggled to keep her second daughter. Two months after the birth she realized that for the baby's sake she would have to hand her over for adoption.

    Helpless is Marianne's heartbreaking story as told by the bestselling author of Don't Tell Mummy.
