Because she was black, Clare Malone was the talk of her Liverpool council estate. Her mother and her mother’s husband were both white and from birth she was stigmatised for this proof of her mother’s infidelity. Clare was left in a bare, filthy council house to fend for herself and her siblings until, aged nine, she was placed in the care of an order of strict and often cruel nuns. She finally embarked on a settled life as a nanny and pre-school teacher, but she couldn’t escape from herself and the black cloud of her childhood. After suffering a breakdown, Clare was placed in a series of dehumanising psychiatric hospitals for many years until she was helped to remember the horrifying secret of the childhood she thought she had buried forever. Now, with support, she has rebuilt her life as Rosie Childs and has moved on. She is truly happy at last.
Review: A well written book by a 52 yr old lady of how the system has let this lady down,from birth to the present day.A black child who was born in the 1950s, racism & abuse. It shows just how people judge the colour of skin instead of the child’s feelings. Thank god that times have moved on from this.I wish this lady well and hope she finds peace in her life.
