Never Call Me Mummy Again by Peter Kilby
The heartbreaking but inspiring true story of a childhood of abuse, and finding a way out of the darkness.
Peter was just a toddler when his mother tragically died after trying to abort a child they simply couldn't support.
When his father swiftly replaced her with his mistress, Peter made the mistake of calling her 'Mummy'. Dragged outside, trampled on and shouted at, Peter never made that mistake again.
Peter tried time and time again to flee the terrible abuse that dominated his childhood; his hands held against burning stoves, being thrown from a window and even his small feet nailed to the floorboards to prevent his running away.
In Never Call Me Mummy Again, the devastating yet profoundly moving and uplifting memoir, Peter Kilby tells of how he finally escaped the stepmother from hell and started again.
