A True Story of Survival, Hope and Courage
The most shocking true story of child abuse ever told. Who Will Believe You? is the moving true story of one man’s horrific campaign of abuse against his own daughter, which continued for more than a decade of her childhood. In 1976, Bernard Beaumont spirited eleven-year-old Kim Chown and her brother away from their mother to Africa, where he had taken a job as a university lecturer. And there, behind a veneer of respectability, he terrorised and brutalised his own child, Kim, raping her several times a day, making her pregnant and performing DIY abortions before threatening to kill her. Only aged twenty did Kim feel able to escape from him and she descended into alcoholism, after her siblings and mother refused to help her seek justice. But after almost ending her own life, Kim fought back. With the support of her husband and adult children, she finally told the world who her father really is behind the scenes. And after forty years, she faced him in court and won justice for his shocking crimes. This is one woman’s true story of overcoming harrowing abuse to build a happy life against all odds.
