Nobody Heard Me Cry : An Irish Boy Sold on the Streets, a Whole Life Shattered Paperback
by John Devane
John grew up in poverty in Limerick, Ireland, in the 1960s.
Fatherless, and with a family in chaos, John fell prey to the predatory clutches of a neighbour, setting off a cycle of sexual abuse that eventually led to being sold as a teenage prostitute.
Against all odds, John put himself through college and became a lawyer.
But there was no escaping his past. One day, a man arrived in desperate need of representation and failed to recognise John as the boy he'd once abused.
Now John had a choice to make...Nobody Heard Me Cry is both a devastating expose of a stolen childhood and an unforgettable story of survival.
Most of all, it is a heartfelt plea to hear the cries of other children in need.
