And Molly II

About the author - Rosemarie Smith

Born in Chesterfield in 1958, Rosemarie lived with her parents and nine other siblings in a small council house at Eckington, Derbyshire.

Following the break up of her parents, she and her siblings were abandoned and left to cope on their own.

Suffering from both physical and severe sexual abuse, at the age of nine she was placed into the care of The Social Services.

For five years she was moved from one children's home to another, eventually returning to live with her mother, which had disastrous results.

After suffering a break down she was advised by her counsellor to write a therapeutic journal which resulted in her writing the true story of 'Little Molly'.
