A prisoner in her own house, forced to marry her father and then falling pregnant with his child, Tanjas endured unimaginable cruelty. Remarkably she found the strength to write about her experiences in this powerful and balanced autobiography. Innocence Betrayed is a heart-rending and moving account of her life, told in her own words. Her story is one of courage and triumph over appalling adversity. With honesty and inspirational bravery she offers a rare insight into the reality of dominance and mind games played by abusers. More importantly she shows howe the cycle can be broken and the abuser brought to justice. In a final, emotionally-charged chapter she relives her father's trial and describes her feelings while giving evidence against him. This is an extraordianry yet ultimately postive story, which was made into a television documentary by the name of Flight of the Dancing Bird, with the aim to give other abuse victims a message of hope while also providing a deeper understanding of a situation that seems incomprehensible and inescapable. Her story will remain in the hearts and minds of readers long after the book has been finished.
