Dirty Laundry

Indeed my pretties, on this page you will find Betty's first and possibly only,  non fiction book. It is a searingly, nay brutally honest account of her life. An epic tale set over nearly 20 years , that sees Betty broken into a thousand pieces by domestic abuse, living with threats, derogatory and degrading behaviours, violence and disgust before breaking free and building a new life led by music and song. When that new life is once again disrupted by another sorry saga of threats and abuse from another direction, Betty nearly goes under but in a tale of extraordinary strength of will and purpose, we see her defiantly face her fears and get the better of them. Read it and make of it what you will, you may go untouched , you may find it a dreary and depressing diatribe from an attention seeker but you may also find yourself caught up in the stickiest of moral dilemmas, facing utter sadness and despair followed ultimately by hope and love for your fellow person.
