At the age of eleven, a beautiful happy girl found herself thrust into a nightmare of abuse and violation that ripped her world apart. At the mercy of three men, she endured a four-year ordeal of sexual exploitation and degradation before eventually finding the strength to say 'no more'. Confusion and shame made her keep her secret for sixteen years. This is her remarkable story. Sarah Preston has endured what no child should. Subjected to extreme and systematic sexual abuse from a 'friend' of the family, she turned to her father only to experience the same treatment from him. Utterly devastated, Sarah even started to wonder if she was somehow to blame for this most unforgivable of betrayals. Driven to attempted suicide by the hideous behaviour of those she should have been able to trust the most, her story is one of a young girl whose life was nearly destroyed by the selfishness of three deeply troubled and wicked men. But, Sarah is a survivor who has somehow found salvation. Her experiences bear testament to the enduring strength of the human spirit in the most unthinkable of situations. "Living With The Past" is a story of how love and courage eventually enabled an astonishing individual triumph over a childhood stolen by the evil of others.
