    Who Will Believe You?

    A True Story of Survival, Hope and Courage

    by Kim Chown

    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.

    Your Life in My Hands

    A Junior Doctor's Story

    by Rachel Clarke

    A Sunday Times bestseller from the author of Dear Life. I am a junior doctor. It is 4 a.m. I have run arrest calls, treated life-threatening bleeding, held the hand of a young woman dying of cancer, scuttled down miles of dim corridors wanting to sob with sheer exhaustion, forgotten to eat, forgotten to drink, drawn on every fibre of strength that I possess to keep my patients safe from harm. In Your Life in My Hands, television journalist turned junior doctor Rachel Clarke captures the extraordinary realities of life on the emergency frontline. Her heartfelt, deeply personal account of life as a junior doctor is both a powerful polemic and a love letter of optimism and hope to the health service.
