In the chill of a winter's morning, a sweet and likeable 13–year–old girl unexpectedly gives birth in the bathroom of her council flat. The baby, the product of a brutal rape by her stepfather, is whisked away to hospital and is eventually adopted by a rich suburban couple. As far as everyone is concerned, Sadie will never see the baby again.
The girl, Sadie Burrows, survives her ordeal and goes on to become a successful businesswoman, famous in the media, even courted by politicians as an example of young enterprise.
Then, out of the blue, there is a knock at the door. And Sadie's shameful secret comes back to haunt her.
Sadie, the first novel by best selling author of 'The Little Prisoner' Jane Elliott, is an explosive story of abuse, business, love, success, blackmail, murder and cover–up.
