Kurzbeschreibung

Josie told me she was murdered. When you're a lonely six-year-old, you don't really understand what that means. All you know is you're happy to have a friend to play with.
Patsy Whyte caught glimpses of an invisible world growing up in a children's home in Aberdeen. One of a family of ten traveller children, torn apart by the state in the 1950's, Patsy recalls a childhood scarred by years of mental and emotional abuse, prejudice and hatred.

Patsy left the home at the age of 15, angry, naive and ill-prepared, but with a will to survive which would be tested to the limit. She rubbed shoulders with the rich and powerful and the poorest in the land, and drifted into a world of violence, prostitution and drugs which almost claimed her life.

More than anything, No Easy Road is a testament to the survival of the human spirit.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Difficult story, but worthwhile despite unpolished writing style 19. Mai 2011
Von KC - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The author's life experiences are heartbreaking, and the subject matter covered is not easy to read about. Many of the details of the abuse the author experienced are absolutely horrific. However, the author's resilience shines through in the end, and the fact that she was able to write this book is a testament to the strength of her spirit. Yes, the writing is a bit unpolished, but it is worth overlooking the writing style.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Sad story but worth the read 28. Juni 2011
Von Yasmine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book really puts into perspective human suffering. My heart went out to the author and what she went through in her life. I guess the "happy ending" was more of the epilogue of the book. We really do take for granted our lives and having food, clothing and shelter. I think this book is worth the read. God bless this lady for overcoming her circumstances!

5.0 von 5 Sternen No Easy Read Review 10. Juni 2011
Von da12889 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I was happy to read this book even though the material is depressing. I feel that God was working in Pat's life because on many occasions she was saved from some horrible situations. Still doesn't mean she didn't suffer. I would like to hope that now days foster homes/group homes have therapy and such to help these young children. I would hope that home mother's are better selected than what's in this book. Although I didn't cry there were times I wanted too. There was one time she mentioned she wanted to kill herself but couldn't find a way. I feel that that shows how desperate she was to get out of that situation.

I would have loved to hear above some triumphs that she might have had as an adult. Pull yourself up from t he bootstraps and make life the way you want it to be and work hard to get there.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Sad story, abrupt end, skips around a lot 1. November 2011
Von Kimme - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The memoir begins with Patsy as a young girl living in a youth home with an uncaring house mother. A few of her cousins and siblings live in the house with her, but none are very close. Her parents are mentioned a few times in the novel and presented as alcoholics and gypsies that have no interest in caring for their children. After years of problems in the youth home, she finally leaves and takes a job as a live-in nanny and house keeper to wealthy family. Issues arise with the job and she forced back into women's hostel with an even worse house mother that steals her wages. While living in the women's hostel she runs away, goes through three jobs, and is eventually taken away by her social worker. Even though Patsy has a few decent jobs at a University and at Hospital something manages to go wrong and she is fired from both. On her journey she deals with an abusive boyfriend, prostitution-although she never works as a prostitute, and a violent attack. Alcohol and drugs are always in the background in this memoir.

The story-telling tends to skip around a lot. At one point she is talking about kids she went to school with, then she talks about "years down the road" and where they ended up or rumors she heard about them. She also does a number of flash forwards which take you out of the story at hand. Because of all the jumping around, the novel is unorganized. The language in the book is a little abrasive, but this is how people spoke.

Patsy had a very difficult growing up and I applaud her for having the courage to write it down and relive her past. However, the memoir ends very abruptly with her getting in a taxi cab with nowhere to go and no one to turn to. At this point she is only 16 years old. If there is a continuation of this novel I would love to read it-obviously her situation changed but I would love to here more about the turning point of her life and how she changed her circumstances.
