Phenomena free pdf I was raised within the community of Seacliff village during the 1950s, with each of our family members working in the hospital at some time or another. We sometimes shared our primary school with young patients from the hospital. On turning fifteen we often worked up the hill, helping in the canteen, laundry, wards or occupational therapy. From a young age we absorbed the stories, and it was difficult to know where fiction ended and the greater truth took over. To separate the truths from the almost-truths at this stage would be an impossible task as many of those concerned have died. Therefore I have blended together various stories in this narrative as representative of our family and friends' combined belief of what most probably did happen during the period covered by this narrative. Wherever possible, I have used correct dates, names and places. When there is a modicum of doubt in my mind I have changed names and details for the protection of those still living. As a child I knew Malcolm, who was then a young man, since Dad often invited him home for meals. He was one of the 'lost children' forgotten or abandoned by their families. We followed Malcolm's story from childhood to adulthood as best we could even after he was eventually discharged back into the community. When considering the tragedy and abuse of Malcolm's wasted earlier years, it is a story of immeasurable sadness. Yet he ultimately rose above it all, and with admirable strength, courage and innate resilience, was finally able to 'free the regular boy within' as he had always wanted. This is Malcolm's story as I believe it unfolded

About Susan Tarr

Author Susan Tarr has been writing for 25 years, and she often draws from the diaries she wrote during her international travels. She lived in Kenya, East Africa, where she raised her family. Although she writes from personal experience, she also uses anecdotal information from conversations and other peoples' stories, resulting in her characters taking on a life of their own and becoming larger than life. Susan says, "As I write their stories, my characters will often lead me to places I couldn't imagine. So I relax and let them form as they will." "I am passionate about my writing," she says. "I usually have three books on the go at any one time."
