あらすじ・解説

Child Abuse True Stories presents: Volume four of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography!

The year was 1975, and at age 16, young Keri was desperate to strike out on her own.

However, as listeners of the first three volumes of this series will know, her childhood was hardly the loving, supportive, preparatory period it should have been.

Instead of family dinners and piano recitals, there were shattered dishes and abusive parents. Instead of trips to the museum, there were trips to TV studios - to be molested by celebrities. In short, her childhood was nothing short of a nightmare.

Should it really be any surprise then, after such a traumatic baptism into life, that her first foray into the adult world was hardly an unmitigated success?

From living in squalor to racking up debts, her new-found independence forced her face-to-face with many of life's grim realities. And despite waiting all her life for her freedom, she soon realised that a world without the institutional bars she was so accustomed to was just too much of a jungle. And every jungle has its predators...

But what was a girl to do? Regress back to an abusive enslavement? Or continue moving forward in a world that seemed so backward? She needed a friend - and fast.

Naturally, her understandable distrust of others didn't make things easy. Not to mention her warped idea of love. In the end though, her determination proved the deciding factor. As far as she was concerned, she'd performed her final "favour", and cried the last of her tears.

But just when she thought she'd finally left her demons behind, she found herself at the mercy of unsavoury characters yet again - and this time, without anyone to turn to...

Dear Kat,

Kat,
I truly want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your story with us!! You are an inspiration and I can honestly say I have become quite attached to your younger self so now that I’m at the end, I am sad and I miss you already!! How you have gone through life and maintained such success despite most everyone being against you is beyond me!!! I cannot tell you how many times I just wanted to reach through time and give these abusive people a punch in the throat but especially your mother!!!! I am a therapist and I can say that you have truly opened my eyes to how abuse affects young children and I wish you would have had more cheerleaders in your corner growing up because you were doing so well but they hardly ever gave you the credit you deserve!!! I am grateful for the ones that were TRULY in your corner and there for you!!! I am so very sorry for the pain you endured but so VERY PROUD that you persevered and made a name for yourself!!! I listen to my books to and from work every day and I have gone to work with you for several months so I feel like I know you and I miss you already!!! Thank you for opening our eyes!!!!

Keri 4

The story of Keri Ward is very hard to hear. The abuse suffered by the hands of her mother should never have happened. I had to stop reading at times as my heart rate went through the roof. I hope and pray this isn’t a true story and if it is; I say I’m sorry on behalf of all the people who failed you. You are worth it and the writing of your book should be read by all. We need to understand that to protect a child or young person is a mission to which we all need to be a part of. Thank you for sharing and I can honestly say this book series has changed me. I give it 5 stars for all area...

I loathe Millie!

I am in LOVE with the narrator and of course Keri’s story. The last book and this one are very ... anticlimactic, nothing like the first 2. The things she struggles with are things I’ve struggled with throughout life. I loathe her mother, Millie. I’m so heartbroken over nana and the way she allows this behavior from Millie, and takes her side. After all these years I had hoped nana would finally take Keri’s side, as she really needs someone in her corner. As always the narrator is so amazing, I wished she had more books that she read. I’m not really interested in anymore of “Keri” books but I will purchase the next because I cannot say goodbye to Bridget Thomas!

I've listened to the first 4 books but there are 7 in the series. The last 3 aren't available on Audible !? . Very annoying when you are half way through a story !

Not quite sure

Having read the other 3 books, l am now not so sure. I feel that she is making mistake after mistake and using too many excuses. She seems to have an amazing memory that l feel, you cannot have just from keeping diaries. Not sure if l would read another one.

Amazing

I would recommend all social workers read this book.
Keri, I am so sorry no one helped you, especially in your early years, to escape. Your family and the authorities should be held to account and you will find most, if not all, negative comments from people in authority.

Your family should face criminal charges. It is a shame most perpetrators of violence on children escape any real consequences.

I hope you have found peace in your future and freedom from your mother.

Captivating

I've listened to the entire series and really enjoyed it so much that I was a little sad that it came to an end. Would've loved for another book to follow up with Kerri leaving her old life behind and to see where she is now. Definitely would recommend listening to all the books 📚

A ending that doesn’t seem like an ending…

This book was better than Keri 3. The only thing that frustrated me was the ending, which didn’t seem at all like an ending.
I would had liked to hear how she left the children’s system and also how things ended between her and her mother.
Did her mother ever improve? Did Keri ever finally stick up for herself and put her mother in her place? Did she end up ever marrying her boyfriend or find someone new? Did she have children? How did her past trauma affected her adult life?
The book left so many unanswered questions that I found it frustrating.
I felt like I had brought and read all 4 books only not to know how the story ever really ended?
This is the only reason I felt compelled to rate it 4 stars instead of 5.
Maybe a Keri 5 will appear sometime in the future to answer my unanswered questions?

Therapy

Really enjoyed the story and could relate to aspects of it. My own childhood was difficult and in a weird way this story gave me a sense of not being alone.... almost therapeutical.

I love the Keri books

These books have to be one of the saddest childhoods I have come across, her mother is absolutely disgusting the way she treats her own daughter and it saddens me like no other.

However listening to these types of books has made me realise that I want to and will be such a great counselor and psychologist, as the last thing I will let happen to my kids or others is this.

I really cannot wait to listen to the rest of your stories and I binge listen to your books in a matter of 3 days, I hope you publish the next one of your books with a somewhat happy ending. I miss the gypsies and I wonder often what happened to these beautiful creatures that showed such love and adoration to you. I will be on the alert for more of your great books.
