But from the age of six her life was a living hell - as she became the victim of a vicious eighteen-month hate campaign. Before long she was suspended from school, alienated from her friends, completely bewildered and utterly terrified. Her happy childhood had been destroyed forever.For her mother, Lyndsey, it was a life beyond her worst nightmares.

But then Lyndsey received a phone call from Tanya's husband and the horrific truth was revealed: Sarah was innocent, and Lyndsey was a victim of the most hurtful betrayal of all...
