Scars That Run Deep by Patrick Touher

Book Description

Leaving his abusive Irish boarding school after eight long years, Patrick Touher thought his troubles were over. But the adult world was a dangerous place for a naive adolescent. From the Dublin Catholic boys' home to arriving alone in London, again Patrick is seen as easy prey. Yet Patrick's strength, honesty and sense of humour never left him. The boy they couldn't break, fought back, and eventually found love and a family. But the shadow of his early years was always with him. With the encouragement of his wife - a constant witness to his traumatic nightmares - Patrick set about taking the Christian Brother to task. The eagerly awaited sequel to bestseller "Fear of the Collar" that doesn't disappoint, "Scars that Run Deep" is a deeply moving and ultimately triumphant true story.
