Publisher's Summary

Child Abuse True Stories presents the penultimate volume of Kat Ward's sensational autobiography! Just months after Kat Ward was vindicated in a high-profile court case brought against her by a British celebrity, listeners can now download part six of her fascinating life story.

Despite leaving the courtroom with her reputation intact, Kat's inner life was in turmoil, and it was only due to the loyal support and steadfast encouragement of her ever-increasing fan-base that she managed to complete the sixth volume so soon.

Following on from the fifth book, in which she lost her identity but somehow found herself a husband, Karin now finds herself in the precarious position of having to move in with her partner's family - a move known to strain even the tightest of marital bonds.

But, tight bonds are seldom established by those who grew up learning not to trust, and the status of being the only black sheep in a house full of sacred cows eventually takes an irreparable toll on the marriage; forcing the young Karin out of the house and onto the streets.

In what might be described as the first truly "grown up" volume in the series, Kat, now in her 20s, is left with no choice but to face the world completely alone. Homeless, penniless, and holding the (not just proverbial) baby, she resorts to begging by the roadside in order to get by.

Her desperate search for protection leads her down some dark alleys, and before long, she realizes the uncomfortable truth: that shelter is a commodity to be bargained for. And, with little more than her dignity to bargain with, it is perhaps not surprising that the arms she ends up in are not all tender and loving. In fact, she soon finds she needs protection from the protection itself - a theme all too familiar for readers and listeners of the prior books. The woman who was abused her entire childhood now recounts her terror at being subjected as an adult to violent alcoholic rages, false accusations, and even rape at the hands of her sadistic tormentor, who insists on holding her captive. Once again in need of an escape route, she makes a daring bid for freedom. Yet, despite coming so close, she falls short and ends up swapping one set of bars for another.

The Ending came too soon!

I wanted more. It ended too soon, and too quickly. Hopefully, more books are to come.

Where are 7 & 8!!??

I want to meet this woman!! I'm not sure where her life has taken her since Audible doesn't have Keri 7 & 8!! I found myself shaking my head, yelling "don't do it!", or "don't be stupid!" & "Fuck that! I would have walked back!!" & other times brought to tears (Peanuts!!), or so angry I wanted to track people down and beat the shit out of them (her mother & Joan)!!! You can't read just one!! sart at the beginning & read them all!!

Seriously, Kat, I really want to meet you!! 💖

Disappointed

I've grown to love this character very much. It saddens me and angers me to watch her go down this path of destruction.

I need Keri 5, 7,8,9 etc…

I have listened to hundreds of audiobooks, some series and some stand alone stories. The Keri series is so gripping that you feel like you know her, feel her, love her. Her life and the trials she encounters are so horrifying and she continues to push on. I needed Keri 5, but it wasn’t on Audibles, so against my better judgement I listened to 6, feeling like I missed a piece of her life. You will. It regret hanging on through the days of Keri. The NARA raider is phenomenal in the storyline is perfect

Love these books

I truly enjoy these books because her writing flows with the perfect amount of detail to her surroundings. I love the voice and intonations of the reader she fits perfectly. And the true life message of her story is how the long arms of childhood abuse embrace her entire days.

The most amazing author

I wish I was able to find another author who can even get near The amazing Kat Ward. As always a memoir and masterpiece in one. Waiting for vol 9 to be released.

from full love and support to disappointment

I have been a complete supporter of this poor woman's life of incredible unimaginable pain and trauma, how she survived and told her harrowing story. However, i find such a contradiction in this book to all of the previous books is a big let down. from all the years of abuse and life lessons that have clearly been stated and understood with regards to feeling unloved and unwanted..to so openly destroying and breaking the hearts of her children who are more than likely reading and listening to this book- that she had no love for them couldn't even try to make the effort that was shown for her animals, yet continued to cause as much distress and disruption to them in their young lives as possible - for what ? not out of love? just questioned a lot of sympathy I once had. I understand the trauma and psychology is a major factor... but for everything that happened to an obviously very strong intelligent woman- the need to keep the victim mentality narrative even at the expense of total destruction of her living children's hearts and souls. felt very self centred and selfish when she could have inspired and changed the world...almost like she was proud others had suffered because she suffered-so tough!

Another all too abrupt ending with story seemingly cut short……

Out of the Keri series of books I found this book to be the most believable.
The only pitfall was that it was another book with an all too abrupt ending and a story seemingly cut too short.
Being a huge animal lover myself and owning pets I found the part about Keri having to give up her beloved and faithful dog absolutely heart wrenching! I could not imagine how it would be like to ever be forced into doing that.
I also greatly related with her worry for her cat with it having to be cared for by other people.
Truely horrid, highly stressful, and greatly depressing ordeals.
I admire her bravery speaking out against the criminal behaviour of the detective who held a gun to her head. I know such things can happen along with unfair and untrue assumptions being drawn by those in authorities or social workers.
Such a very challenging life with a whole lot of bad luck and hardships to endure can only add to ones strength once they are overcome.
The young and naive are only that way from not having learnt better from the adults around them and are far too often taken advantage of, and because of this they are forced to learn the hardest way.
Those with such sad and challenging life experiences are often left more wiser and understanding for it, for only we know what it is like to have to endure such things.
I hope that Karen never gave up on striving for and eventually obtaining the better life that she deserved all along.
I hope she found the courage to seek help and counselling with those in positions to help her so that she was able to learn that she was never a horrible or worthless person and that instead see the reality was that those untrue beliefs were installed and programmed into her over many years by her abusers, mainly her mother (who truely was the one who was horrible and worthless!)
My heart goes out to you Karen and I send you a mountain of strength and understanding.
I cant wait to read your next book.
