I’ve just finished reading a news story on the BBC website called ‘The story of a weird world I was warned never to tell‘ about the secrets and lies a woman was told growing up during her unusual childhood. I should point out it is real life, not fiction.
I’m trying my best not to spoil anything because it’s an absolutely fascinating story and brilliant read. It’s one of those stories that shows real life is stranger than fiction.
I’m still trying to process it all. I can’t imagine what it would be like to be in her place.
Go read it. It’s long but well worth your time.
