I can't imagine that there is such violence between couples. Grace was ruthless in her pursuit of money and had a toxic mix of cunning and high ambition. What kind of a woman would sell her own child? A heart-wrenching and shocking insight into a criminal underworld and is a compelling account of one woman's recovery from the ultimate betrayal. I absolutely recommend to people who are not easily disgusted, and to those that wants to go beyond the borders of normal, and enter a parallel universe. She was very thorough in walking us through all the options and went above and beyond by previewing houses for us, giving us feedback on various properties, and helping to look up land issues with one of the homes we were interested in.

This book was a completely new experience for me. I even actually quite admire the mother's character. Grace was ruthless in her pursuit of money and had a toxic mix of cunning and high ambition. She did show her love, like when she went after the man John after she realised that he abused her daughter. You can understand how she wants her mother to love her, but despair at what she puts herself hrough to try and gain it. Would I recommend this to anyone? Grace ran a brothel in Croydon and she plunged her young daughter into a terrifying world of sex and depravity.

A timid child who longed for her mother's love, she grew up in a world of unimaginable horrors with no one to turn to. Her recommendations regarding lenders and inspectors were great too. Tess was just eleven years old when her mother sold her to a rich elderly man. Tess has had such an awful life, and reading all the things she had to go through made me so emotional. I thought that at the end, the authoress shouldn't blame everything on her mother. I think the book's quite well written and I like the attitude of the characters in it.

Grace was absolutely ruthless in her pursuit of money and had a toxic mix of low cunning and high ambition. It's not a story, it's real life. Grace ran a brothel in Croydon and she plunged her young daughter into a terrifying world of sex and depravity. What kind of a woman would sell her own child? Her early life was a grim cycle of emotional abuse and exposure to an adult sexual world. It's terrible what happened to Tess when she was younger. She later opened a brothel too, but became known for looking after her girls and running it as cleanly and as fairly as she could. An example; Grace covers her leg in lipstick, and wraps bandages round it, and tells Tess that God is punishing her for being a bad mother - because she must be if her daughter doesn't love her enough that she keeps visiting the lady upstairs and loves her instead.

I, too, don't understand why would Mother do such things to Tess despite showing love and care at some point in time.

She later opened a brothel too, but became known for looking after her girls and running it as cleanly and as fairly as she could. This child was sexually abused because of her mother; there is no excuse for that! Dangerous criminals visited the brothel every day, and Tess was exposed to things no little girl should see. How easy it was to be sold. However I changed my mind about how many stars I give this book because at the very end the narrator seemed to 'dump' all the troubles she's ever had in life, almost every bad choices that she's made herself, even those made after she's became an independent adult, onto her mother's lap. I agree with one of the reviews. Tess Stevens was born and brought up in South London in her mother's brothel. The brainwash her mother puts her through, you just want to slap her.
